Quillan is a slow fashion label, born out of the desire for a unique range of clothing for the independent woman who has her feet in the past, her heart in the present and her head in the future.

With these ideals in mind, we have designed a range that is distinctive, timeless, versatile and trans-seasonal, while holding true to our brand cornerstones of comfort and quality.

We choose our fabrics consciously, focusing on natural fibres, such as hemp, organic cotton and linen because of their amazing inherent qualities - they are healthier, more comfortable and durable and they have an enormously lessened impact on the environment and the workers in the industry.

We subtly work our distinctive handwriting into each handcrafted design, resulting in an aesthetic that is creative yet wearable, earthy yet feminine, subtle and still expressive.

A parallel line is a range of beautiful and unique hand-knitted garments knitted by an artist in a disadvantaged community in South Africa. Each sale helps to provide a much-needed income for the knitter, helping them to support themselves and their families.

Quillan is the culmination of years of passion, refining of philosophies, experimentation and continually drawing inspiration from our imperfect, yet beautiful world.
