Ethics

People? We love ‘em. We believe everyone deserves a fair chance to be their best self. The environment? Yes, we care about our beautiful and only home. We want to do everything we can within our power to keep it breathing. Animals? In its purest form, we TRULY love them. They get the bigger chunk of our heart.

This is the core of our founding sisters and therefore, the core of everything we do. By using eco-friendly fabrics, producing under strict people-first standards, zero use of animal products and constantly trying to reduce waste, our aim is to have a finished product that is entirely fair free of guilt, throughout its entire production process.

People

Basics

As a fashion label, we want to give the people making our clothes the recognition they deserve, they are the real heroes after all, right? Our garments are made in Bangladesh under strict people-first standards. This means:

– Employment is freely chosen
– Living wages are at least 150% – 200% over the minimum wage.
– Working conditions are safe and hygienic
– Child labour must not be used
– Working hours are not excessive
– No discrimination is practiced
– Regular employment is provided
– Harsh or inhumane treatment is prohibited

REmix collection

The whole collection was produced locally in Amsterdam by Makers Unite, in the old Bijlmer Bajes (a former prison complex, fyi). Hold up, the coolest part: Entirely made by refugees, or better yet, talented newcomers from countries such as Syria, Lebanon and Palestine! The Makers Unite project is a social initiative that helps bring together such newcomers with locals, helping them settle and integrate into their new lives by providing them with career opportunities.

REcycle collection

This collection is made out of 95% recycled denim and the whole thing has been produced in Italy (near Verona) by a local company called Salgari. We have Pinori to thank for the yarn. Fun fact: Its owner is a badass old school rocker who happens to have his own vineyard, where he makes his very own vegan wines. Talk about a true Goat Gangster!

Planet

Our fabrics are environment-oriented and we use organic cotton in the majority of our apparel. What does that mean? No use of toxic chemicals or GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) or anything else artificial in the farming process, allowing for the health of the soil, eco system and people to be preserved. That way, the environmental and social impact is kept to a minimum.

We are constantly developing our fabric sources. For example: mixing a little Polyester into sweater fabrics makes them more durable, but we are more than aware about its dangers to the environment. With that in mind, from next year on, we will be working with recycled polyester only.

Organic cotton

A textile product carrying the ‘organic’ label must contain a minimum of 95% certified organic fibers. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain. For example: it requires that processors and/or manufacturers report data on water consumption output and that they set target goals and procedures to reduce water consumption. Also: All chemical inputs (e.g. dyes, auxiliaries and process chemicals) must be evaluated and must meet basic requirements on toxicity and biodegradability/eliminability.

Tencel (Lenzing)

TENCEL® is the lyocell fiber from the house of Lenzing. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely ecofriendly, due to the closed loop system.

Modal (Lenzing)

Lenzing Modal®, a modal fiber from Lenzing, is naturally soft on the skin and exceptionally ecological. The fiber is produced using Edelweiss technology. Edelweiss stands for a “symbiotic” production process – pulp, the raw material, is produced at the same site as the Modal fiber itself. Thus production can be done while going easy on energy and other resources. Simply Edelweiss!

Linen

Linen is made from cellulose fibers that are commonly derived from flax plants. This fabric is durable, linen can endure 20 years of wear, but it is also incredibly comfortable and flexible. The flax plant does not require much energy or water resources to produce and the entire plant is used to make linen, leaving no waste footprint. Linen clothing is naturally biodegradable and recyclable.

Animals

Let us hit you with a hard truth: Over 100.000.000 animals are used for fashion items every year. Yes, that’s a tough number to digest, and we want nothing to do with it.

Our founding sisters are genuine animal lovers and live a completely vegan lifestyle – actively. So, the absolute NO use of anything harmful to animals is and will remain one of our main priorities. Simple as that. We are very proud to be a 100% wholehearted vegan company.
