THE JOURNEY OF OUR PRODUCTS
We care about every step in our supply chain, from raw materials to ready product.
All our products are made in factories following strict requirements regarding the workers' wellbeing and safety.
All the yarn and fabrics used in the production of our garments are hand picked by us. This allows us to better control the origin and quality of the materials, compared to if the material were selected by the factories.
Below you can find a complete list of our supply chain, including factories, yarn- and fabric suppliers. If you have any further questions, you are always welcome to contact us and ask.

FABRIC AND YARN SUPPLIERS
FILATURES DU PARC
We buy yarn for all our knitted garments from the French yarn manufacturer Filatures du Parc. They make recycled yarn in many different qualities and colours. The yarn is spun of fibres from old textiles that are sorted by colour shade. The yarn is not dyed again the second time. This way the environment is spared from 98% of the negative impact that otherwise would be caused by normal production of new yarn.
Lebenskleidung is our main fabric supplier. They import their fabrics from carefully chosen manufacturers that they know personally and visit regularly. All their suppliers are GOTS certified and the fabrics are also carefully controlled when they arrive at Lebenskleidung in Berlin.
Lebenskleidung was founded by Benjamin Itter, Enrico Rima and Christoph Malkowski in 2009, after a long visit in India where they got to experience how the workers were exploited, especially by the textile industry.
