The founder and designer Kimelyn was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. She grew up with two non-conforming, slightly eccentric parents, a houseful of animals and a lot of vibrant colours. She played around with sewing machines from a young age, sorted through buttons, and felt connected to design. It felt unimaginable that she would do anything other than designing, cutting patterns, sewing and creating clothing. Quillan is a slow fashion brand with a passion for creating a better world. Quillan implements sustainable practices, supports small ethical factories and suppliers, uses natural and organic fabrics and consciously moves away from a fast fashion model of producing clothing. Quillan also works with a made to order model to ensure minimal waste. With shopping Quillan, you can trust you are investing in ethically made, quality garments that won't cost our planet.
