The Art of Sustainable Elegance & Fabrics
House of Parvi’s collection at Helsinki Fashion Week was elegant, flowy, well-crafted, and ready-to-wear. The collection succeeded in both: having pieces with beautiful artistic prints that looked hand-printed, but minimal with simple cuts.
The collection included silky shirts, stoles, series of flowing scarf-like summer dresses, each designed with precision to show impeccable tailoring.
The prints were inspired by nature and looked like they were painted by watercolors.
At first look, the material looked like luxurious silk, but it was rose petal fiber. Yes, you read that right. The rose petal fiber is extracted from the natural waste of rose petals and then processed to create a luxurious and soft spinning fiber.
In addition to rose petal fiber, House of Parvi uses aloe vera, and lotus stem as fabric materials.
The aloe vera fiber sounds amazing, it’s breathable, wicks moisture, and it’s wrinkle-resistant and good for your skin. The fabric is antibacterial and anti-allergenic and also cools during the warm days and warms during the cool temperatures.
These natural fabrics are sustainable, eco-friendly, and biodegradable.
