our manifest of sustainability

You have surely noticed the negative impact of the fashion industry on the environment and human rights. It's hard to bear what's going completely wrong - from high CO₂ emissions to starvation wages. But we don't want to fall into a paralysis of shock. We want to take off in the right direction. Be part of our community and make up your own mind along the way.

Step 1, our design aims to be functional and timeless to keep you looking your best for as long as possible.

Step 2, we use high quality and natural materials. If we use animal fibers, then only recycled ones, so that no animal has to be kept for our garments.

Step 3, we keep our supply routes as short as possible and only work with GOTS or GRS certified companies within Europe.

Step 4, in order to be as transparent as possible to you, we visit our suppliers at least once a year, take photos of each visit and openly communicate our production processes.

Step 5, we think in details. This includes climate-neutral shipping, avoiding junk like silk paper, using plantable hangtags, compostable bags and boxes made from certified wood that we reuse as often as possible.

Producers we work with

    Fonte & Faria • Portugal

    Fonte & Faria is a family business with more than 25 years of experience in the textile industry. They produce circular knitwear in a full GOTS certified supply chain and are also our supplier for our organic cotton labelings and the plantable hangtags. The company employs 50 people in a 1200m² space in Braga, Portugal. Fonte & Faria are Higg Index, BSCI and GOTS certified producers.

    Atomtex Foulards • Italy

    Atomtex is our accessories supplier based in Como, Italy and has over 35 years of experience in the textile industry. They specialize in scarves and offer a supply chain that is completely "made in Italy". Atomtex sees sustainability as a base and is GRS, BCI, Oeko-Tex and GOTS certified among others.

    Valérius Group • Portugal

    Some of our circular knitwear comes from Valérius. The company was founded in 1987, is based in Barcelos, Portugal and employs around 2000 people in a total of 35 factories. They adorn themselves with various certifications, such as Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, Fairtrade Cotton, BSCI, GRS and GOTS.

    This summer we were allowed to visit their new factory "Valérius 360". Leftovers and overproduction from the Corona crisis, are sorted by material and color, shredded and spun into new recycled yarn by a special and sustainable process. This procedure saves masses of fabrics from waste and we are looking forward to using the yarn in the upcoming summer collection.
