Festela is born from the union of profiles from the world of graphic design and fashion. We believe in slow fashion, the time it takes to appreciate the little stuff and create unique pieces. All the sweatshirts are produced totally in Barcelona, away from the mass production and the fast fashion concept each time more ingrained in our society.
The prints are handmade individually and carefully, so there are no two identical pieces. Each piece is a limited edition so that it fits with each person and makes it unique. We combine contemporary design with functionality, taking care of every detail of the whole process: colours, patterns, design and materials.
Our vision exists because of our passion for creativity, culture and the art world. Our mission is to build a different fashion brand, within which there is awareness of Slow Fashion. We see this mission reflected in:
We don't follow trends, that's why we produce limited editions of each model. The whole process of creation and sewing passes only through our hands.
All the materials we use are from local commerce, helping to contribute to the social and economic development of the country.
Screen printing inks are eco-friendly. We do not use chemicals in the production of any of our garments. We always try to be fair and environmentally responsible.
To create our garments, we create moodboards with our artistic references. Thanks to our moodboards we extract our palette of colors and ideas of materials to experiment.
Once we have our references, we experiment with different materials to create print ideas.
We start to design our garments on paper from the prints created previously.
We make the first prototypes of the pieces to finish rectify or modify measurements of the patterns.
Once the final design is clear, we print with screen printing on the fabrics.
Once the printing is finished, we sew the garments. We make small editions that are usually limited editions.
We elaborate the labels of the garments, as well as the packaging and the embroideries in a handmade way.
