ABOUT US

GARCIA_BELLO  is a sustainable brand based in upcycling methods.
Inspired in everyday life, and in the paths we’ve come along. 

The concepts in each collection speak of what’s ours –of home as land and shelter. The items in each collection are made out of donated hand-me-downs, old or discarded clothes combined with raw biodegradable cotton, locally produced. 
Two types of zero-waste patterns are articulated into the pattern design: one of them standardizes like garments while the other makes the most of the roll of cloth and permits to elaborate unique pieces based on textiles disposed of.
The technique developed drawson up-cycling and reconstruction methods. It has simple seams and handcrafted details. We work at a humane and unhurried time, and with a small stock.
Each piece is genderless and its size adapts to different body builds. 
These design moves help generate comfortable timeless durable items, with a low-impact on the environment. These are garments for everyday wear that stay on for a long time. 

The GARCIABELLO concept originated in Tierra del Fuego province, in the south of Argentina, by Juliana Garcia Bello (a graduate in Clothing Designer from FADU; Universidad de Buenos Aires) . The brand was later founded in La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2017, in the dining room of her grandmother Dora Duba house . Later on, in October 2019, the company’s head office moved to Arnhem, Netherland.
