Handmade Clothing - to resist into the dystopian society

Ciao I'm Siska. I'm an independent clothing designer from Rome.
I arrived on Etsy world in 2006 but only since 2011 my shop is officially open and operating. Name of my clothing is Siska-Tank. This name was inspired by Tank Girl of Jamie Hewlett, one of my favorite comics ;) I have a big collection of all his comics! I'm a self-taught dressmaker and all garments in my shop are designed and handmade by me. Everything is one of a kind or limited edition.
I make patterns, handprints, cut and sew every item and I send your purchase.
Two pieces can be similar, but never the same...this is fantastic!
Each my item is designed to provide comfort and originality without losing portability. I create siskatank clothing because I would like to offer to you apparel for existing and be yourself promoting independent thinking that breaks homogenizing tendencies and allows to more accurately express their own style and personality. Be Comfy and Unique everyday!
Andrea, is my life partner. For SISKATANK is graphic designer, photographer and illustrator.
We make all screens and illustrations for the screenprint of all our printed items.
Siskatank is based on slow fashion: means a choice of handmade realized with maximum attention to materials and resources. The certainty about originality and unmistakable coherency free from mass dictates. I don’t work with tailor’s labs and I don’t want a serial production! With this motivations, I make my items made to order only, in this way I can offer you a more conscious production focused to quality rather than quantity, produced by human for human.
Sci-fi, underground culture, industrial decay, post-apocalyptic, H.R. Giger art, cyberpunk and biopunk, Philip K. Dick books, Dystopian futuristic societies, punk rock and new wave music. All this is my visions and inspiration for Siskatank clothing.

to modern times
to crowded streets
to industrial era
to Monday mornings
to nuclear disasters
to hasta la vista baby
to short trends
to millenium bug
to smoking manholes
to Higgs boson

Thank you so much for supporting our dreams!
Siska & Andrea with ♥
