    Slow -fashion:

    The organic cotton is woven, knitted and printed in Chemnitz according to my designs without using any water and using drinkable organic dyes. All components such as fabrics, yarns, buttons, zippers and labels are organic: single-variety, vegan and GOTS certified. The sewing workshop is on site, 100% made in Saxony.

    My collection is compostable because I don't use synthetics. One of my items of clothing travels just 3,500 km from the cotton field in Turkey to my customers, instead of 65,000 km as in conventional fashion, so I already reduce CO2 emissions during transport due to my regional production in Germany, by avoiding air freight. I work according to the C2C principle; larger offcuts that arise during production are upcycled into accessories, smaller remnants are recycled into new yarns/fabrics in Berlin. My production is transparent because my QR code is sewn into my items.

    I work with green electricity in my studio. I use recycled paper for my packaging and reuse packages. I produce on demand and have no overproduction.

    As a trend pioneer, I work in the trend research team of the Network of German Fashion and Textile Designers (VDMD eV). I give eco-fashion trend lectures at trade fairs and fashion schools. In this context, I noticed that there is hardly any interesting eco-fashion in Germany and even fewer fashionable eco-fabric manufacturers. Since 2015, as a young start-up, I have set myself the task of designing and producing organic collections with my own textile design, which is printed in Germany and sewn in Kassel, in order to reconcile sustainability, fair trade and yet intelligent, innovative design.

    Smart -Fashion:

    My fashion language consists of design, craftsmanship and ecology, clever cuts in a puristic form, casual and business approved, non-seasonal, ageless and unisex. EcoFashion is the second skin, can be smart, affordable & Made in Germany!

    Eco -Fashion:

    According to Greenpeace, fashion is the second biggest environmental polluter and organic cotton only accounts for 1% of the global market. To change this, I give lectures at trade fairs on sustainable fashion for B2B such as MunischFabricStart, B2C such as DesignersOpen and the Heldenmarkt. Lecturer at the Sigmaringen Fashion School.

    "Consume small but fine, take responsibility for what you wear! 2% EcoMode becomes 100%! My mantra is in my initials SSE: Slow Smart Eco!"
