RESPONSIBILITY - A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS MODEL
Our biggest dream is to revolutionize the fashion industry and change people's mindset about what truly constitutes sustainability. We want to challenge the mass production, overstocked inventory, poor quality, and sales culture that are the biggest culprits in the textile industry.
The amount of clothing produced is simply too much. In fact, twice as much clothing is being produced now as just 20 years ago, and according to researchers, these numbers will continue to rise in the coming years. This trend must stop, especially as the fashion industry is said to be one of the most polluting industry in the world.
We cannot save the world alone. But we can make a difference by only producing what the customer needs and creating awareness about "sustainable" clothing.
We hope you will join us on this journey.
