PHILOSOPHY

“The pistil is the female part of the flower thanks to which the fruit is generated.”

The name of the brand derives from the union between the primordial charm of nature and feminine sensuality which results in timeless dresses adaptable to the body of every woman.
Pistil was born from the need to share an alternative fashion concept that follows the succession of seasons, capable of adapting to the circumstances of a world in continuous transformation and that accompany the woman in her inner growth reflecting her attitudes and becoming personal style.
Pistil does not want to dictate a precise style but wants to become part of the personal and daily choices of every customer who marries the values ​​and visions of the eclectic and wonderful world of fashion understood as sophisticated and simple art at the same time.
Pistil is a 0 km brand that reflects the principles of sustainability and responsibility towards nature and the human being.

PRODUCTION CHAIN
Pistil gives new life to existing material transforming it into a dress to wear and love, this happens thanks to the design of each garment in respect of the environment that surrounds us using fabrics whose fibers are for the most part natural and come from inventories recovered from neighboring suppliers, guaranteeing a 0 km supply chain.
Even the artisans are based in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, in North-East Italy, the same place where the collections are designed and the photo shoots are taken.
PRE-ORDER
Pistil clothing are produced in limited quantities with deadstock materials following a slow fashion philosophy making every dress exclusive and born from a precise desire: we believe in slowness and in the value of waiting. When the clothes produced are out of stock, Pistil creates the possibility of purchasing the desired garment with the "pre-order" option where the material is still available. Savor the joy of waiting for the garment that will be produced in a couple of weeks just for you.
If it is not possible to pre-order the chosen item due to lack of fabric stock we trust in your understanding and in sharing our philosophy: we truly believe in a conscious production without waste.
