A bit of the history of Instinct
In the beginning, they started with handcrafted screen printing, making all kinds of prints, on stockings, gloves, swimsuits… which they sold in gift and design shops in Barcelona. Over time they decided to open their own physical stores, a way to give visibility to the brand and bring Instinto closer to its buyers, creating a space where the soul of Instinto could be breathed.
The first store they opened was in Sitges, where their origins are found, the light of the Mediterranean, the color… Later they set up another one in Barcelona in the Gothic quarter, near the Ramblas (when there were booksellers and antique dealers) and in Bilbao, when they inaugurated the Guggenheim and the city was in full transformation. You will currently find them in the neighborhoods of Gracia and Sant Antoni.
With the opening of the stores, the first fashion collections arrived. Collections where color and fantasy began to be the protagonists. Unique, different and very, very original designs and prints. With printed cotton knit fabrics and also the creation of its own comfortable and adaptable fabrics, which marked the identity of what Instinto is today.
The values of instinct
At all times they seek excellent quality based on the comfort, durability and originality of all their garments. For Instinto, a priority is to work with knitted fabrics such as cotton, viscose, bamboo and other fibers that offer textures, natural touches and fantasies.
Instinto has its own clothing and serigraphy workshop, where most of the operations for its production are carried out. From the design of the fabric, to the printing of the garment, finishes and modeling of its collections.
The fabrics are manufactured in Catalonia in compliance with environmental standards. They control even the smallest detail of production to provide quality and durability to the garment. Garments made with a lot of love, taking care of all the details and final finishes.
In all their garments they seek their own unique identity through exclusive designs, where each woman can find her own style. They have an artisanal, Barcelonan and urban stamp that distinguishes them. They have a wide variety of models and shapes with sizes up to XXXL, designed for all types of women.
They have a wide variety of clothing: sweaters, tops, dresses, skirts, pants, jackets and coats. They also produce accessories with screen-printed prints: patterned tights, tactile gloves, socks, masks, scarves and buffs.
Clothing with personality
Each collection has a different history, colors, fabrics, finishes and clothing. All the experience, inspiration and creativity of its creators are reflected in the designs of their garments that manage to create collections with a great personality, a timeless spirit, offering versatility and different looks and styles for different occasions.
Women in power
Instinct is a clothing project designed and manufactured by women, for women. They are very committed to the feminist impulse in the labor market, since they have a team that has grown over time and is currently made up of 15 women. All of them contribute their professional, creative and dynamic vision to Instinto.
