Designers Britt Cosgrove and Marina Polo started Svilu out of a desire to offer women a wardrobe of staples made in a mindful way. Using environmentally sustainable fabrics they design timeless pieces that can survive the ebb and flow of trends. Impeccably made classics in a variety of fabrics meant to reduce fashion's impact on the environment – relative newcomers like tencel, modal, and cupro, as well as natural basics like wool and organic cotton that is GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified. SVILU was the winner of the 2013 CFDA/Lexus Eco Fashion Challenge Award and was inducted into the CFDA in 2015. They continue to proudly make much of their collection in their hometown of New York City.
