Syl Markt is an easy-to-wear women’s clothing line by Chicago-based designer Lauren Markt. The line uses mostly silk, but also incorporates Italian wool coatings and suitings, French lace and more. Lauren paints the artwork in Chicago and then prints it on silk in Los Angeles.
Designer Syl Markt will be featured along with 100+ of Chicago’s finest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art at the Chicago Artisan Market at Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago) on Sunday, July 22, 2018 from 10am-4pm.
The Syl Markt line is:
• Cruelty Free – A vegan brand, they respect animals and their habitats. They do not use leather, skin, fur or feathers and seek alternative materials instead.
• Artisanal – Their clothes are made by hand as an antidote to fast fashion.
• Empowering – A woman owned business, Syl Markt seeks to empower and partner with female contractors and other women-owned businesses whenever possible.
