Meet Neil & Marter.
A start-up fashion brand that aims to influence people in supporting slow and ethical fashion. We make handcrafted accessories by using offcuts of leathers and fabrics.
Neil & Marter co-owner, designers, and makers, Neil and Bon started the brand as environmental advocates with an ethical and sustainable platform and plastic-free packaging solutions.
“As a social enterprise, we have a strong responsibility and dedication to uplifting local artisan, and empowering Filipinos through self-expression in Fashion.”
How it all started:
Fashion is one of the biggest contributors of waste but it also is one of the best ways to spread the message and awareness in environmental wellness; establishing sustainable living, protecting our natural resources, lessening pollutants and excessive waste. The idea of Neil & Marter started with Bon’s abundance of scrap materials coming from his Interior design background. Younger generations are now conscious of how fashion impacts a huge percentage of industrial waste on our planet.
That is how we thought of maximizing the use of oddments of textile altogether to create functional and wearable art. It led us to venture into this social enterprise that caters to modern and eco-conscious fashionistas who value the origin, and the process behind the brands and products they support.
Our #ProduktoPartner needs YOUR help.
