Sustainable Brand: SUNAD
This week we land on a hot and dry space: not the desert, but almost. We talked to SUNAD: a shirt-specialized Spanish brand that calls on the YSL woman of the 70's with a contemporary twist. From the dunes of the desert - "dunas" in Spanish - to SUNAD.
Created by two madrileñas, SUNAD’s shirts are featured on Renoon. Why? Let’s see how they caught our interest...
Q: In a sentence, why is SUNAD sustainable?
A: We only work with 100% natural fabrics and our productions are made locally in Spain.
Q: What is it that makes SUNAD unique?
A: Our determination to keep doing what we are doing.
Q: Paloma and Ana, as founders of a sustainable fashion brand, what is
your biggest inspiration?
A: Our biggest inspiration is our grandmothers, the way in which they cared, looked and thought about fashion. When they where younger, fast fashion and artificial fabrics weren’t a thing, so they took care of their clothes to last a lifetime. They would only buy a couple of things a season, if any, and took care of it as if it was a little treasure. We now call this slow fashion, buying consciously.
Q: Which are the products you identify the most in your collection?
A: Ana: Karoo Flores [SS19 - Launching soon] - A style that we designed some years ago for one of our firsts collection and that we’re now bringing back. I love how it’s so summery and how the fabric flows and how it’s a style that worked then and now.
Paloma: Barrosa Noche [SS19 - Launching soon] - Because of its versatility, as you can wear it both as a shirt and as a jacket. I also love how soft the fabric is.
Q: ...and the most timeless, everlasting item any women can have?
A: Rodas [SS19 - Launching soon] - It’s design for every woman regarding their age of style. Both fabrics are very timeless and their colours can work for both the summer and winter season.
