What is Kistaku?
Kistaku is an artistic independent young fashion project born to be part of the Circular Culture.
Upholding sustainable processes and the reduction of the consumption of Fast Fashion Industries.
With Kistaku I want to express my vision, my values, and how I see the world. Every creation is inspired by the elements of nature, tangible and intangible.
As in most artsy fashion, I like to combine prints, patterns, and colours, I am not a maximalist, but not a minimalist either, I don't do the popular 2020 upcycling clothes, but don't either only transform vintage clothes.
Just a timeless and unique thing!
All creations are exclusive, one of a kind, made from occasion and house linen fabrics, such as curtains, table cloths, etc but we could also find re-worked vintage pieces.
What Kistaku means?
Kistaku or "Ki-staku" which means "my star" in Totonaca, a Mexican Ethnical Group based in Veracruz. Probably the Totanacas used the astrological star in their vocabulary, but instead, I wanted to symbolise the starfish for their ability to regenerate amputated limbs.
In Upcycling we do not let just die, we reuse, repair and regenerate.
Because we waste so much when we can use what is already created.
Because there are better work conditions for the humans.
Because we want to create individual identities, not alined patterns.
Because we believe in wearable and accessible clothes.
Because independent small project must have the opportunity too.
Because we create with illusion, at home and by hand, every single piece, one by one.
