The Collection

Shooting 23.10_bearbeitet.jpg

Iconic items.
Long-lasting classics.
Eternal favorites.
Designed to last.

We are a small creative studio from which common ideas and timeless women's wear products arise. Together with the seamstresses of the Eyes of Light Foundation, Ghana, we create the patterns, question fabric usage, fits and quantities. We exchange ideas about Prototypes, teach and learn new techniques for the job as a seamstress/tailor. 

We successfully completed our crowdfunding campaign on 9.1.2022 and are now starting to prepare for the first production and a planned online shop launch in July 2022.

 
Fabrics

OUR MAIN FIBER: ORGANIC COTTON

Due to the fact that no toxic chemicals are used in the cultivation of organic cotton, the soil is not damaged, harmful emissions are minimized, the groundwater remains clean and there is no health risk for the farmers. Water consumption is about 70% less than the regular average, organic cotton is irrigated by up to 80% rainwater, and about 60% less energy is used.

When you choose to buy organic cotton, you're investing in water conservation, clean air, healthy soil, and a fairer life for farmers.

OUR SECOND IMPORTANT FYBER: LYOCELL

The Lyocell fabrics from our fabric supplier “Lebenskleidung” are manufactured using Lyocell fiber technology developed by the Austrian company Lenzing (Tencel Lyocell). They use a closed-loop process which ensures that the auxiliary materials used in production can be reused up to 99%. Lenzing uses FSC® and PEFC™ certified wood from sustainable forestry for the production. Check out the technology here.
