We work closely with brands, organizations and manufacturers to create responsible fashion products.

Since launching our company in 2013, we have consulted on fashion sourcing and production with a strong focus on sustainable solutions.

We also advise clients on product strategy and textile development, as well as supervising the entire production process, from fibers to final product.

OUR APPROACH: Sustainability is not a plus – it's a must.

Textile manufacturing has a big social and environmental impact. Responsible design and production need to be incorporated as an all-embracing way of making a product, and this is only possible if everyone is on board.
