SACRED is a sustainable luxury brand designed in Sweden and ethically made in South Africa. Our brand consists of a variety of different kaftans and kimonos styles. The majority of our kaftans and kimonos are made using solely sustainable materials such as vintage silks, crepe and chiffon. Our goal is to only use sustainable fabrics in the future. Each piece of the kaftan and kimono range is a one of a kind, unique garment.
Our philosophy is to create permanent collections (no season pieces) that can be worn in many different ways and can be dressed both up or down. The brand vision is to be a modest, feminine, global luxury brand based on the concept of slow, sustainable and ethical fashion that produces timeless designs for all women.
SACRED collaborates with an organization in South Africa called Meaningful Change with Saris for Change as their fashion movement, they train future entrepreneurs in business skills and needle craft to create their own employment. The trainees either become entrepreneurs, sole proprietors, suppliers of skills, or distributors. Included in the program is the following: Upskilling — manufacture and stitching of ready-to-wear garments; Behaviour of an entrepreneur; Entrepreneur knowledge and skills; and finally Business practice. Sari for Change ensures that there is ongoing coaching and mentorship for the trainees, up until sustainability is reached.
All of SACREDs products are made by the women trained by Saris for Change. Each piece therfore helps to empower women and gives them a potentially lifechanging opportunity. We aim to launch our webshop in the early fall of 2017.
