Dark Wilds is an independent women's wear label based in Portugal, established in 2009.
The company is run solely by Rara Matthews whose affinity for earthy and minimalist aesthetics are reflected in her brand with each garment being worked and handmade personally by her. All products are designed and made in house as one of a kind pieces or in small batch runs.

Dark Wilds' garment designs incorporate a mix of materials, focusing on organic and sustainable resources in its slow fashion creations while keeping waste to a minimum.
Dyes used are from natural plants and minerals or low impact colours.

Personal interests of Rara include the history of textiles, prehistoric archaeology, permaculture and herbal medicine.
