ZĪLE is a Latvian fashion brand striving for a more sustainable future through the concept of upcycling. The label’s main resource materials are denim trousers, men’s shirts and fantasy.
At the core of the brand is the idea that what people wear is a symbol of their character, identity and values, and that the global environmental trend is an important part of current values. That is why ZĪLE reimagines and reworks classical garments to create a sustainable and modern wardrobe.
Our brand is run by a small team, but every piece of clothing upcycled by ZĪLE is designed and made by one person - creative and enthusiastic Aiva Zīle - in her small workshop.
ZĪLE uses second hand clothing that is either hand picked by Aiva in vintage shops or donated by our collaboration partner, charity shop OTRA ELPA, therefore every piece of clothing upcycled by ZĪLE is one of a kind and unique.
Our upcycled garments are named after some of our favourite characters from various tv-series and movies - check out our e-shop and see for yourself.
