For CECILIE Copenhagen, it all started with a night out, with nothing to wear. A familiar situation sparked the idea that is now CECILIE Copenhagen. Made from two keffiyeh scarves sewn together, 18-year-old Cecilie created an outfit. After countless compliments that night, Cecilie decided to experiment with other garments, inspired by the keffiyeh print. CECILIE Copenhagen was established shortly after. It acknowledges the Keffiyeh’s origins in the Middle East, and that the scarf’s pattern holds cultural value for many people of the region. CECILIE Copenhagen draws inspiration from the thought of timeless prints, lightweight fabrics, combined with a Scandinavian design tradition for easy wear styles.
