"Clothes aren`t going to change the world. The women who wear them will."

For anyone who loves everything relating to fashion, the term "slow fashion" should no longer be an unfamiliar concept. The fashion world has also become aware that, for the sake of the environment, attention should be paid on how and with which materials products are made.

In contrast to fast fashion, slow fashion decelerates the processes in the fashion industry. Fewer collections are produced in order to improve people's working conditions and to use sustainable materials to conserve resources. Usually, natural fibres, such as cotton, are used for garments. These are biodegradable and therefore do not pollute rivers and oceans. However, this principle does not only apply to clothing, but also to accessories and footwear.

And this is also the philosophy of MASCHALINA - to offer a selection of unique and luxurious statement jewellery that is produced responsibly and regionally in Viennese workshops. This way, social groups that have a hard time on the job market are also supported. Your favourite pieces of jewellery should not only look high quality, but also be high quality.

We use high-quality and durable materials such as the semi-precious stones agate, rose quartz or amethyst. With special sewing techniques, these are processed by hand into your pieces of jewellery. It is important to us to produce fair jewellery in cooperation with various Austrian workshops with whom we maintain a good, warm-hearted relationship.
