Neil & Marter was born out of curiosity and environmental wellness by interior designer Mark Boni Marter and aspiring fashion designer Neil Capistrano. The two collaborated on scrap materials from Bon's interior design studies. They thought of maximizing the use of unique and genuine vegan leather and fabrics in order to create wearable art.
Armed with basic leather crafting tools and techniques, the creative duo produced their first batch as gifts to family members "At first, I wanted to craft everyday accessories like bags, wallets, and cardholders out of Bon's luxury leather collection," Neil shares. "One day, my mom requested a pair of earrings for her, my aunts, and cousins. We had fun with the learning process and ended up making 25 pairs."
This led them to venture into an ethical fashion social enterprise that caters to modern and eco-conscious fashionistas who value the origin and process behind the brands and products that they support.
Neil & Marter aims to influence people in supporting the slow and ethical fashion movement through handcrafted accessories using upcycled materials. The brand is launching a crowdfunding campaign to introduce a limited-edition collection together with artisans from Marikina City.
