SWIATLO “LIGHT, to ILLUMINATE” in Polish. Light as a guiding feeling to find within oneself. Light as consciously choosing what to do with our finite time and energy
An exploration of cross-cultural design aesthetic from a Polish-American designer who fell in love with India.
Our business was born in New York, and now we spend most of the year living in India with our supply chain. Small batch and one of a kind garments sewn with precise finishings and fit from Indian artisan textiles & reclaimed post industrial and post consumer materials.
Designed by a former NYC fashion industry patternmaker and Parsons alumni, Swiatlo garments are created with a woman's body in mind. Working colors, patterns and shapes around our forms for a fit that feels sensual and effortless.
The Swiatlo supply chain is built with small production houses, nonprofit stitching units and traditional craftspeople,throughout India. We create relationships with the makers and their communities in order to positively contribute wherever we do business, and ensure all parties involved receive adequate value and compensation for the work we do together.
