WHERE FUNCTION MEETS FASHION
Inspired by Nature – From Fibers to Green Treatments
After many years of inaction, everybody is jumping on the bandwagon in terms of sustainability and ecological responsibility. Our best choice is just around the corner: Sustainable fabrics, local production and gentle natural finishings are becoming increasingly important. As a result, people are turning to authentic natural materials, the simplest way to care about our environment: Garments made of natural fibers are predominantly biodegradable, while the brushed inside of a wool-, hemp- or Tencel sweater refrains from releasing hazardous micro-plastic into the sea.
