YOU ARE NOT A COPY, YOU ARE ORIGINAL!

DURGA fashion brand stands for environmental awareness, respect for all living beings. This is not just a greenwashing statement. DURGA brand clothing is made locally within EU

The process beholds mainly handcrafting in the form of art therapy. It is all about awareness and noticing how the creativity and imagination flows through and art manifests from pure consciousness. Clothing is crafted in home studios both in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Kuressaare, Estonia (EU) in ideal working conditions.

 

This imaginative process makes the brand totally out of this World, because DURGA creations are not replicable; thus there is only one single item available from anything you see on this site.


How?


Due to up-cycling from preloved garments, collaboration with local international artists in Amsterdam. Sometimes there are a few unique handwoven materials added to the mix that have been bought in very small quantities directly from tribal artisans when traveling to exotic countries. It is not an ongoing practice, meaning - it does not make the artisans dependent on the brand, nor does it involve any factories or sweatshops. Some faux fur materials are a rare addition to the coats or costumes acquired solely from material shops in Amsterdam, supporting local businesses. Furthermore, some leftover materials are obtained from local Amsterdam markets.
 
Therefore DURGA brand is totally ethical and exclusive - original one of a kind fashion clothing that nobody else owns to emphasise the uniqueness of each being. 

Our business practices are as cutting edge as our clothing.

How?

In our company one gets paid according to what one puts in.  We know that men and women both have incredible qualities and there is no battle or issue about equality. We value diversity and uniqueness, which is a gift. We operate with positive leadership and any issues are resolved through healing practices like energy healing, hypnosis and other holistic therapies immediately available within the company itself. 


YES, you saw it right -  this is the future of the ethical clothing manifesting NOW!!!

Project DURGA "Pure Goddess" Art Coats.

To give an example of DURGA slow fashion, transparent & ethical clothing practice, this coat on the photo took about a month to make - the exclusive hand-painted art is from Amsterdam based Finnish artist Maarit Hänninen.

She painted it with love and care for a whole week. The art is crafted by hand on organic hemp (material requiring no pesticides and least water to grow) combined with faux fur bought only for this coat from Amsterdam central fabric shop.

The belt and front panel are exquisite material handwoven from fine wool  bought directly from Myanmar Chin state-tribal artisan living in most natural conditions in the mountain area 3000 m above sea level. This was a one time trip as the Chin state is generally closed from tourism and was a spontaneous

meeting with the tribal community thanks to an encounter with a local who drove there to visit friends.

Cotton lining material was obtained by Indonesian artisans on a market in Thailand also during the same journey to Asia.

Knits were added to the mix for making a matching belt with handknitted gloves.

This all came together bit by bit and the outcome manifested through DURGA designer Dorit - we can safely say that this one of a kind art coat is pretty impossible to replicate. It is a true celebration of uniqueness and ethical practice.
