The Fabric is the Fashion

We like to say…”The Fabric is the Fashion”

Everything we’ve done and will do at Kastlfel is aimed at producing the best possible fabrics with the least possible waste and environmental harm. And that takes time. Which is why this practice has been referred to as “the slow fashion movement.” But we think it’s time well spent! Not only do our consumers benefit from better products, but our manufacturers and their communities benefit from greater economic equality and a radically decreased environmental footprint.

This is what we mean when we say “the fabric is the fashion.” Because thanks to the way we produce our fabrics, Kastlfel is one brand that everyone can feel good about – whether you’re making it, selling it or wearing it. Everybody wins!
