Who is behind the label?
My name is Jessica Silversaga and I founded this label in 2019, after thinking about the fashion industry for many years;
how crazy everything has become with fast fashion and wishing there were more high quality,
well made, natural fiber clothing out there for me. So I decided to do it myself.
I have been sewing my whole life, and collecting vintage clothing from the 1900s to 1940s.
I have always been amazed by the quality of vintage clothes, and how they could be handed down through generations.
That quality of fabric, the craftsmanship and details, is what I wanted to create with my label.
A feminine, comfortable collection of clothes, made with love out of beautiful materials.
How do I feel about clothes and what makes me passionate about them?
I believe that garments can be empowering to the person who wears them.
That they can make you feel as beautiful and special as the hand made clothing that you are wearing.
I believe that clothes are an expression of who you are, and if they make you feel powerful there is nothing you can’t do.
My opinion is that we should consume less and invest more, to reduce our environmental footprint.
The clothes we wear plays an important role of how we see ourselves and our world.
What is your background?
I have been a vintage seller and personal shopper for over a decade.
I am a fashion and art photographer by profession. I have studied photography for six years.
I learned how to sew and do pattern drafting mostly by myself, and some classes at Tillskärarakademin and Folkuniversitetet.
I am inspired by the silhouette of womens wear through the 1840s to the early 1940s.
I was born and raised in Sweden, and now live in a 1880s wood cottage in the forest. This is where I dream, and make clothes.
What inspires you?
Strong women of past and present.
The love of my life.
How do you source fabrics?
I only work with natural fibers such as linen, cotton, rayon, tencel, silk and wool.
I source materials as local as possible and use OEKO-TEX® certified fabrics, a certification for natural organic fibers.
The prints are especially made for my label, and inspired by the prints and textures of vintage fabrics.
What is your mission?
To inspire and empower other women.
To have a discussion about fast fashion versus slow fashion.
To encourage people to choose quality and support small business owners.
To share my love for vintage designs and to celebrate the beauty of individuality,
Mother Nature and femininity.
