3Quarters

3QUARTERS is an upcycling fashion accessories brand founded in 2015 in Athens. Committed to the principles of sustainable design, works intentionally on small scale production, trying to raise awareness on slow, ethical, socially and environmentally conscious fashion. The designers, Garifalia and John upcycle leftover and used awning fabrics from the Athenian balconies. They source all the raw material locally and adhere to a policy of zero waste. They take Athens, the complex metropolis, as their inspiration and mirror its spartan urban landscape. Respecting the character and limitations of our fabrics, they have designed a series of bags that are utilitarian, stylish and reliable. Living in a big city, they complement the contemporary urban lifestyle with a topical taste. Each bag is designed and manufactured separately, the colour and material combinations carefully selected and then everything made and assembled by hand. It takes time and effort, a good eye and many hours of head scratching but is worth the effort. They never make the same bag twice. Working with limited resources and relying on what is available at the time, it is inevitable. And they see each one of our bags as something of themselves; there’s been many an occasion that they felt sad in letting one go.
