Fast fashion is like junk food: cheap, but ultimately bad for you and bad for the planet. It's a love-hate relationship built on exploitation and microtrends you don't need or will remember. But it doesn't have to be that way.
Martina Maletti exists, instead, to promote a healthier relationship with the clothes you wear, built around making only what we sell. We produce on demand.
On-demand manufacturing is a method in whichproducts are only produced when they are needed, rather than in large batches.
Most fashion companies produce large quantities of inventory, a practice that reduces the production cost per piece, but often leaves them burdened with excess product at the end of the season. This extra product is put on sale, repeatedly discounted and, if consumers continue not to buy it, it is dumped in landfills or burned, adding significant pollution to our planet.
Millions of euros worth of clothes are thrown away every year, simply because they don't fit. And that's how fast fashion works: you buy clothes in standard sizes and fits, only for them to end up in a landfill after a few wears.
When you place an order with us, you are not receiving an item that has been sitting in a warehouse for months. You will get something made especially for you and only for you in our ethical and researched atelier, one garment at a time.
Our combined philosophy and product offering appeals to the type of consumer who is willing to wait those few extra days to receive the part that will give them years of use.
We produce very nice things being aware of it. We are creating a better earth.
Once the order is finalized, the garment will enter into production in our atelier with a delivery time of approx. 10 days.
We work with experienced tailors in our atelier. Our service is even more responsible, as the supply chain is better optimized and more efficient, with a low carbon footprint. We support local production with our atelier located in Madrid, Spain.
