Emphasising beautiful shapes, and interesting prints, Bilboa strives to consciously create, quality handcrafted goods, with an elegant yet quirky aesthetic.
Drawing inspiration from her nomadic upbringing, designer and creator Osha aims to instill a feeling of wonder and empowerment in all of her pieces. Honing skills learnt as a professional costume maker, she produces garments that are striking, and unique, that are still practical and comfortable to wear.
Every aspect of Bilboa, from designing, to cutting, to construction is lovingly done by hand. Firm believers of the slow fashion movement, many garments are made on demand, so can happily customise garments to specific measurements.
Crafted from dead stock, organic and vintage fabric, our designs are determined by what we have on hand, and we strive to source all our fabrics from ethical backgrounds. Working around imperfections, transforming discarded and excess fabric, to give it new life in small run, and one-off pieces. Patterns are shaped to fit the fabric, and optimize fabric consumption.
Featuring vibrant colours, and bold patterns, we hand print onto fabric; using eco friendly paints to mininise waste and water usage. From packaging to tags, we strive to reduce our footprint on the earth, by using only recycled paper products.
