About Sicels

Sicels is a Copenhagen based studio that was established in 2020. Sicels create timeless, high quality scarves as well as small jewelry collections. Each scarf is designed in Copenhagen and ethically handcrafted in the UK. As the name suggests, Sicels has its roots in Sicily where all jewelry pieces are also designed. All jewelry are limited edition pieces handcrafted in Denmark 

The brand has a “Limited Edition” concept and the result is slow fashion that embraces longevity, timelessness and seasonless styles. By producing seasonless styes, Sicels avoids overproduction and encourage consumers to make more. By focusing on slow fashion and longevity Sicels makes a great effort to contribute to a more sustainable fashion industry. Throughout the supply chain, Sicels has a careful approach to materials and craftsmanship to ensure that all scarves and jewelry have minimum impact on the environment.

Sicels has its roots in Sicily and the brand takes its name from one of the indigenous people of Sicily in the Iron Age, who were called the Sicels. All scarves are designed with inspiration from the Mediterranean culture. The patterns and colours of Sicels’ scarves are inspired by the aesthetics of Sicily but are revisited to include a modern and minimalistic touch.

Brand sustainability

Sicels seeks to influence the fashion industry and push for more sustainability by creating timeless pieces through seasonless styles that can be worn for generations to come.  Each scarf is designed inhouse in Copenhagen and consciously made in England. 

Sicels’ scarves are printed in a premium studio run by a local family. The studio is committed to use innovative technology to reduce water usage and to recycle excess dyes from the production process. The studio is also committed to source solely natural and sustainable textiles and all dyes used in the production phase are soluble so they can be dissolved in water after use. The fabrics are coated and prepared for printing using a mixture of natural products only. All fabrics used in the production is made from either classic Silk twill, Organic Peace silk, Merino virgin wool, Crepe de Chine, EcoVero Viscose, and Cotton voile.

Sicels uses packaging and marketing material that is nearly entirely recycled, recyclable, biodegradable and printed with water based inks. From one end to the other, Sicels are careful and meticulous to always make the most conscious decisions so that consumers can rest assured knowing that a Sicels purchase is a conscious purchase.

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
