The oxymoron of sustainable fashion
We can call into question the oxymoronic nature of sustainable fashion. We can question the premise of the current fashion system. We can also act and acknowledge fashion as a process and creative human labor.
Let's call into question the promise we can buy our way out of a crisis that has largely been created by buying stuff, by global mass consumerism. Let's go from fast to slow, buy what you need, and make it last by mending, lending, and recycling.
Find more information on how to trade your garments at our store. Or find our repair service to extend the life of your items.
We have a goal to contribute to a positive, in times social, impact and to reduce where we can.
On the matter of fabrics, we aim to be as sustainable as possible. We try to reduce our impact on the planet by making garments that last longer from carefully sourced high-quality textiles and the use of dead-stock fabrics. Find garments made with Oeko-Tex 100 (free of chemicals) and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certifications. Leftover fabrics are being used to make or mend items.
We keep an eye on the production chain by producing all garments in-house in our atelier.
Our suite of packaging reflects our continued commitment to sustainability, minimalism, and luxury. In-store purchases will be accompanied by retail bags made from biological unbleached cotton. Your new garment will safely travel home, but the bag can be reused multiple times after that.
After purchase, we wrap your new garment in paper and you will find your garments in a recycled box for shipping. Not because we’re cheap, but because we care : ) Why not try giving this second-hand box a third life?
It doesn’t make any difference to the items, but it has a positive impact on the world we live in.
As part of our sustainability mission, we’re committed to continually improving our packaging and lowering our impact even more.
