The origin behind every article of clothing comes to Verbiden each with their own rich history. Garments come from vintage sellers, thrift stores, yard or estate sales, and occasionally buy one from a friend who found it while exploring abandoned houses.
Behind every work of art comes inspiration from findings within. Engineered into every Verbiden piece comes a reflection of Earth’s connection found within the past. That everything on Earth has a connection which comes full circle, it is just a matter of timing.
Designing techniques are executed with tools found in a similar style as our vintage apparel. Nearly all instruments used are second hand, while our big secret has been around for over one billion years. Verbidens best used tool is Mother Nature’s timely effects, different each day, different within each piece.
Focusing on that well-worn look, just about all our clothing embraces the elements in our backyard studio. Each having braved the elements in their own manner adding to the rich history behind the fabrics.
From repeated wear to apparel stowed away for decades. Our techniques are executed by hand with no influences from machines. This process takes a longer period of time, but these are the fundamentals of Verbiden.
Each vintage patch was stitched using a single straight stitch or zig-zag. To ensure the function and quality of each sewn garment, hand stitching was required and adds the most significant touch.
After exercising each process, tees then traveled to a local screen printing shop. Each garment having a different past hidden within decades of wear and tear, a higher quality plastisol ink was applied. This step- along with a second layer, ensures a brighter pop in tone.
Verbiden is proud to deliver our very first collection- CIRCLES hand released to you by a process that will connect you to yesterday's past; ensuring you stand out like no other. The story behind it will create the stories in front of you.
