Spicysols, conceived by best friends and soulmates Darcy and Danzo, is a distinctive label born from a blend of adventure and a passion for sustainable fashion. The brand’s journey began over a bottle of red in Italy and evolved through travels across Southern Europe and Asia, leading to the creation of a clothing line inspired by their experiences.
Based in Australia and New Zealand, but globally connected, Spicysols stands as a strong advocate against fast fashion. Their mission centers on producing ethical, high-quality clothing that ensures fair wages and minimizes environmental impact.
Their commitment to sustainability is evident in their practices:
- Small, Curated Collections: Focusing on reducing deadstock and wastage prevalent in the fashion industry.
- Use of Hemp: A key fiber in Spicysols garments, hemp thrives in Nepal’s Himalayan region with minimal environmental impact. It requires significantly less water than traditional fibers and minimal pesticides.
- Support for Local Artisans: The brand collaborates with talented individuals in the Kathmandu Valley, offering fair wages and flexible working conditions, including options for home-based work.
- Eco-friendly and Durable Materials: Hemp used in their products is environmentally friendly, strong, and durable, while also being skin-friendly, hypoallergenic, and biodegradable at the end of its lifecycle.
Spicysols is more than a clothing brand; it’s a manifestation of a sustainable lifestyle, offering garments that are not only comfortable and stylish but also ethically produced and environmentally conscious. Their approach ensures that the clothes you wear are connected to a story of responsible and mindful fashion.
