RADICAL ECO TRANSPARENCY

Sustainability is a journey.

We invite you to journey with us in making the world a better place. Our journey builds on the narratives of our partner farmers, scrappers, knotters, weavers, embroiderers and independent designers that all weave together to form a dress that shares your values, story and character. 

THE ECO JOURNEY OF UNRAVELLING THE TRUE COST OF WEDDINGS

During your journey with Silviyana, you will experience radical eco-transparency while having the power to give back to Mother Earth through our native tree planting program. To evaluate our environmental impact, we adopted the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) technique. A common assessment method used by sustainability professionals to evaluate a product's impact throughout its life cycle. 

Silviyana is dedicated to continual improvement. We are consistently working with our partners to ensure data accuracy, while also taking inspiration from nature to push new designs that are elegant, timeless and kind to the environment and people.

MATERIAL EXTRACTION

Due to shortage of reliable data, we used both primary and secondary data to evaluate the extraction of the fibers used in the creation of each gown.

TRANSPORTATION

Silviyana is involved in the sourcing of pineapple and banana fibers from farmers to obtain by-product fibers, scrappers to extract fibers and weavers cooperative to weave our fabrics. Since, we are involved at every stage of the supply chain, we are consistently working hard to gather accurate data on how our products are transported.

CONSTRUCTION

Silviyana is a collective of independent designers. We work closely with our partner designers to gather data, such as how long they took to pattern, design and construct. We also take into consideration where our designers are located and the associated environmental impact of their electricity grid mix.

USE

Each bride has their own personal preference on what they would like to do to post-wedding. We did make the assumption that brides will have to dry clean their wedding gown once, and as such have included this in our calculations.

NEWEST COLLECTION NAMED AFTER A SILVIYANA BRIDE, modeled by Alissa Anderegg, Miss World America 2020

Here is what Pauline had to say about her experience with Silviyana:

"I felt beautiful, confident, and elegant in a cool, effortless way. The dress was light, yet had some heft to the skirt that felt and looked great swooshing around. What I loved the most, however, was the organic cotton lining that felt so comfortable I honestly wouldn’t have minded falling asleep in the dress, and the piña fabric that had a texture unlike that of every other bridal gown I’ve seen."

-Pauline Oyco
