Hi! We're Neil & Marter

Neil & Marter is a start up fashion brand that aims to influence people in supporting slow and ethical fashion. We make handcrafted accessories by using offcuts of leathers and fabrics.

Neil & Marter co-owner, designers and makers, Neil and Bon started the brand as environmental advocates with an ethical and sustainable platform and plastic-free packaging solutions.

"As a social enterprise, we have a strong responsibility and dedication to uplifting local artisan, and empowering Filipinos through self-expression in Fashion."  

How we started out…

Fashion is one of the biggest contributor of waste but it also is one of the best way to spread message and awareness in environmental wellness; establishing a sustainable living, protecting our natural resources, lessening pollutants and excessive waste.

The idea of Neil & Marter started with Bon’s abundance of scrap materials coming from his Interior design background. Younger generations are now concious of how fashion impacts a huge percentage of industrial waste in our planet. That is how we thought of maximizing the use of oddments of textile altogether to create functional and wearable art.
It led us to venture into this social enterprise that caters to modern and eco-conscious fashionistas who value the origin, and the process behind the brands and products they support.

“Neil & Marter – Synergy in Fashion, Art and Function to save Mother Earth.”  

Our project is cause-driven and our goal is to create opportunities and to empower Filipinos, especially women. Being mindful in using textile wastes is one of our core values. To lessen waste, to be the voice for an Ethical Fashion Movement and to push sustainability to uplift Filipino Livelihood and to promote environmental wellness.
