Sustainable Nots from Belleikat

[EN]More and more common in fashion, sustainability implies the production of clothes and accessories without polluting the environment and wasting its resources, and has as a primary concept the protection of nature for the new generation. At the same time, this concept involves balancing economical growth by developing a sustainable circular economy, protecting natural resources and finding new alternatives, including for the production process.
Thus, some brands use it in recycled materials, others use renewable materials as: cotton, wool, tree bark, organic vegetable skin. See here an older article. One of such brands is the Belleikat one, which is based on the ethical and sustainable production of articles from a unique fabric called “ikat” and comes from Central Asia.

BELLEIKAT is a sustainable and conscious concept that produces unique and extravagant pieces, using graphic designs and strong colors, from a unique fabric with a tradition of over 2000 years, made by a special technique used in the East. Being an old motive, ikata has developed in several human communities around the world, such as Peru, Guatemala, Yemen, Japan, Indonesia, India and Uzbekistan. Ikat is a symbol of globalization and cultural diversity, so from here it is understood the ethic chic or boho chic style.

BELLEIKAT brand was founded by Isabella Stadler and Anna Fedchenkova and comes to discover the magic of the East, the clear sky and the infinite horizons, it’s about freedom, hot sand dunes and dreamy skies.

Today I have chosen to wear the “Sofia” dress in pink silk with white stripes, it is a fine and lightweight piece of garment, perfect for the warm season of the year, and I also like the volume from the upper part of the sleeves. It is a unique model, but you can find it in different colors. I wore sandals with a heel but it can also be worn with boots, tennis shoes or sandals without a heel. The bracelet on the hand is from KIPATO UNBRANDED, another eco-ethical brand created by women in Nairobi, Kenya. Visit BELLEIKAT Instagram page to find all the pieces that they produce: colored accessories, clothes and pillows for your sofa.


[RO] Intilnita tot mai des in moda, sustenabilitatea presupune activitatea de productie a hainelor si accesoriilor fara a polua mediul si a epuiza resursele acestuia si are ca principiu primordial protectia naturii pentru noile generatii. Totodata, acest concept implica echilibrarea cresterii economice prin dezvoltarea unei economii circulare durabile, protectia resurselor naturale si gasirea de noi alternative, inclusiv pentru procesul de productie.
Astfel, unele branduri utilizeaza materiale reciclate, iar altele folosesc materiale regenerabile: in, bumbac, lana, coaja de copac, piele ecologica vegetale. Vezi aici un articol mai vechi. Un astfel de brand este si brandul Belleikat, ce are la baza producerea etica si sustenabila a articolelor dintr-o tesatura unica ce poarta denumirea de “ikat”, si provine din Asia Centrala.

BELLEIKAT este un concept sustenabil si constient ce produce piese unice si extravagante,utilizind modele grafice si culori intense, dintr-o tesatura unica cu o traditie de peste 2000 de ani, fabricata printr-o tehnica speciala, utilizata in est. Fiind un motiv vechi, ikatul s-a dezvoltat concomitent in mai multe comunitati umane de pe glob, cum ar fi: Peru, Guatemala, Yemen, Japonia, Indonezia, India si Uzbekistan. Ikat este un simbol al globalizarii si al diversitatii culturale, de aici reiese si stilul ethnic chic sau boho chic.

Brandul BELLEIKAT a fost fondat de catre Isabella Stadler si Anna Fedchenkova si vine sa descopere magia estului, cerul limpede si orizonturile nesfirsite, este despre libertate, despre dune de nisip fierbinte si cer instelat.

Astazi, eu am ales sa port rochia “Sofia’ din matase roza cu fasii albe, este o piesa fina si usoara, perfecta pentru perioada calda a anului, deasemenea imi place foarte mult si volumul din partea superioara a miinecii.Este un model unic, dar il puteti gasi in diferite culori. Eu am purtat sandale cu toc, dar poate fi purtata si cu ghete, tenisi ori sandale fara toc. Bratara de pe mina este de la KIPATO UNBRANDED, un alt brand eco, etic, creat de femeile din Nairobi, Kenya. Accesati pagina de Instagram a brandului BELLEIKAT, pentru a gasi toate piesele pe care ei le produc: accesorii, haine si pernute colorate pentru canapeaua ta.
