Covid-19, came to Earth with all his unkindness to humans and taught us a lot. We have seen that we can live with less consumption and we can do a lot of things without driving by #sustaining-from-home. Things we should have thought before. Coronavirus, is changing human life style, and pushes us forward to a #new-normal. Human beings must adapt to new conditions to survive. At this time, Silva’s creative ideas facilitates this adaption by opening cotas for #working-from-home and being more #sustainable through #home-made and #home-provided sources. All in all, Silva discovers the silent potential and convert it to sustainable #added-values through a sharing and circular economic platform.
For home/hand made fashion lovers who care about sustainability, have difficulty in finding each other in the market and should pay for expensive products, SILVA is a place that gives access to these unique and authentic products with value deal prices. We aim at empowering home/hand made businesses by elevating them to responsible businesses with transparent and trackable supply chains which produce sustainable value deal products by optimizing their production line. Unlike other home/handmade marketplaces, SILVA redefines sustainability and boosts it three fold by putting environmental friendliness, as well as social and economic impact together.
We develop a platform beyond an online marketplace to help home/hand made fashion lovers connect, empower, share experience/knowledge, collaborate as well as buy and sell while they are aware of the sustainability impact of their activities and have an opportunity to promote their impact through SILVA as a sustainability Hub. In SILVA, everyone has a sustainability profile that records the sustainability of their activities on the platform. Moreover, we associate a dynamic sustainability score to each person and product employing key, tangible, and easy to measure indicators which consider all accessible aspects of sustainability.

Hence, SILVA relies on a Peer-to-Peer model derived from the society which contributed to local development with world-class effect in a bottom-up approach by standing on the shoulders of skillful, talented, and creative people. We belong to everyone; people from different cultures and ethnicities with different tastes.
