Being constantly inspired by the elements of the ’70s Silvia teamed up again with ancient hippie trail artisans from Afghanistan and sourced incredibly warm and cozy coats and vests.
This luxurious fur vest is handmade out of Kabul and features traditional Afghan fur trims and embroidery.
The sheep suede for the vests is ethically sourced in the northern mountain part of Afghanistan (Pamir) bordering China and is a biodegradable by-product of the local meat industry. The sheeps roam free every day, grazing upon miles of mountainous grassy hills. Eventually, the animals are used for the local meat industry and their wool is used to make warm winter coats such as those that Afghan locals have been wearing for thousands of years.
Silvia only uses natural sustainable, biodegradable materials that leave a minimal trace in our environment. We believe in a conscious, conservative approach to consumption and want our pieces to be kept for years to come.
