About taken from German Sustain Concept*:

"After working together successfully for many years, fashion designer Antonia Goy and architect Bjoern Kubeja launched their own fashion label in 2018. Here, exquisite tailoring meets timeless elegance and sustainable, enduring design. Working Title uses only the finest natural materials such as mulesing-free wool, cashmere, organic silk, organic cotton and Tencel from certified European manufacturers and rejects man-made fibres in order to minimise harmful residues through wear and disposal. The collections are manufactured in Germany, Italy and Poland."

* German Sustain Concept is a programme initiated by the Fashion Council Germany under the auspices of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) with partners Neonyt, the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation of Messe Frankfurt, Bikini Berlin and Showroom.de.

"mimycri is a registered non-for-profit organization in Germany. In a diverse team, newcomers and Berliners make history tangible by working together. We are upcycling broken refugee rubber boats into high quality bags.

The idea for mimycri was born on the Greek island Chios where the co-founders – Vera and Nora – volunteered several times since 2015 welcoming people arriving at the shores. This experience motivated Vera and Nora to stay engaged and do something.

mimycri is about a change in perspective. It demonstrates that when we start to see things in a different way, a whole new world of possibilities can open up. We look for the good in the bad. We envision a world in which we help and support each other, just because we can – and because it feels good.
Sustainability: We are using what is already there and give new life to rejected material. The overall setup of the project is designed to be environmentally, socially and economically independent.

Integration: We are convinced that social and economic participation are key to successful integration."

Swedish Stockings
They claim to be the only sustainable hosiers brand as of 2018.

Excerpts from the sustainability section of their About:
"Pantyhose is a petroleum product and one of our biggest consumables. The industry is huge and the production itself uses non-renewable fossil fuels and require a huge amount of energy and water to produce. This extremely large process is very harmful to the environment and most pantyhose are designed to be worn once and then replaced, and so contributing to textile pollution - the third most polluting industry in the world (after oil and agriculture).

Swedish Stockings is created from the by-product of other nylon products that is non-biodegradable. The production process is a lot less complicated than traditional nylon production and we are consistently looking for cleaner ways to produce - conserving or reusing water, decreasing emissions, reducing and recycling waste. From this highly efficient recycling procedure we have reduced energy and water consumption by:
- 87.6% less energy
- A savings of water 18.M3/ton yarn

We want to break the current production of pantyhose - to produce beautiful and long lasting stockings.
- A large part of our production is solar powered
- Our factories are zero waste
- All water used in dyeing is purified and treated"

Pure Waste
Intro by WOMB:
"Their practice involves using only fabrics coming 100% from recycling. They stick to barely a couple of Nordic colours along greys, blues and blacks, as they use zero dyes - the colour palette of the clothing simply depends entirely on the colours of the dead stock materials that they happen to use for a given collection and how they mix them with each other. The garments of Pure Waste are produced in India, in a factory that they own, which ensures high level of control and keeping themselves informed about the process of production. That way, they stay assured that no un-sustainable practices are present, and that their fabrics don’t get mixed with others accidentally (which is often the case with, for example, organic cotton production sites, where organic cotton often gets tangled with regular one)."

Kilomet 109
"Designer, artist and eco-entrepreneur, Van Thao is a leader among the pioneering group of young designers who have made Hanoi an emerging creative hub of the fashion world.
Thao’s vision encompasses every detail of the production process, starting with the natural materials that go into the garments she designs. In doing so she is helping to preserve the rich textile heritage of Vietnam.

Using organic fibers and traditional techniques of vegetable dying, Thao works with her team of local artisans to grow, spin, weave, color and print Kilomet 109 fabrics. After that the garments are hand-stitched in her studio in Hanoi.
The value of our pieces is about more than their design, it’s about the culture of the people who make them and the environmental issues that are so vital to our future.”

GAIA Conceptions
"Clothing materials and production methods are rooted in sustainability [...] comfortable, and highly versatile. This means observing every step involved with making a garment, from seed to shirt. We are continually tweaking our system to the highest standard. Often similar to the Slow Foods Movement, Slow Clothing focuses on organic materials, a mindful supply of energy, and artisan quality goods and services. [...] use certified organic fabrics that are produced either locally (North Carolina, USA) or through fair trade practices abroad. [...] dyes are as eco-friendly as possible [...] A mixture of natural dyes and low impact fiber reactive dye color options is currently the most eco-friendly option. [...] Artisans custom cuts, sews, and dyes each garment by hand at our studio in North Carolina. We love giving the client the ability to build a more custom garment. Eliminating unwanted stock is just one of the ways we reduce our environmental impact."

We are inspired by the textures and hues of nature and, to better protect it, we aim to constantly better our ways.

Each season, we continue to explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Over the years, we’ve been experimenting with different recycled materials such as recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. Since 2007, we’ve been committed to using linings only made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. We have also recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to our collections." HAG

Angelle draws inspiration from the Netherlands and all items are handmade in Holland using European fabrics." HAG

Sustainability And The Role Of A Fashion Designer
Article by Ethical Fashion Forum's Sarah Ditty. Sustainability aspects mentioned by the brands Sweaty Betty, No Such Thing, Kitty Ferreira and BHAVA are: - Avoiding chemical paints (e.g. VOCs) and dyes in favor of natural / vegan alternatives - Source organic and animal-friendly (e.g. in silk called cruelty-free) - Increase recycled content / up-cycling - Transparency (incl. asking many questions to suppliers) - Consider price level: Often high end product is made to last, and can be more sustainable, whereas high street has a level of throw-away. Important keyword: Slow Fashion - Low Carbon Foodprint: Local sourcing and production - Fair Trade certification - Non-toxic alternatives to waterproofing finishes - Using dead stock fabrics from larger brands (aka leftover fabrics) - "Be more than just a product, transport a lifestyle" HAG

About: "Uncomplicated clothes that become well loved favourites made in an honest fashion since 2007. Spanish designer Nieves Ruiz Ramos is the inspiration behind the label bibico. Nieves had been working in the fashion industry for leading brands for 10 years until she decided it was time to go it alone. She wanted to move away from the trend of cheap, fast fashion and make simple, stylish clothes that people would enjoy wearing again and again. It was also important to her and the rest of us at bibico that the clothes were produced as ethically as possible. [...] bibico's collections are stitched, woven and knitted from high quality natural materials in fair trade cooperatives. Much of the knitwear is made by hand and the woven collections feature hand embroidered detailing. We believe our simple every day garments get something extra special, unique and personal that way; a little bit of heart." bibico has got many wholesale stockists in central Europe. HAG

Eco Fashion Comes of Age
Abstract: "Eco fashion has emerged as a counterculture force, confronting flaws in the current system and consolidating change. Born in tangent with the human rights movement of the 1960s, eco fashion has finally shed its tawdry typecast." Excerpts: "Good designers don't just consider the aesthetics of an object, but how that object comes to be - right down to the growth and manufacture of it […] “What I've noticed is that once people become informed and engaged with their clothing on this level it inspires a new relationship and decision making process around what individuals choose to have in their wardrobe. It’s always very much down to personal choice, taste and ethical concern. Having a more in depth 'story' behind a garment gives us more to relate to and can be quite empowering." HAG

Traditional fashion calendar fuels overconsumption and waste
Excerpts: "Customers have become so accustomed to these markdowns that it’s creating a vicious cycle of overconsumption." [..] "Some brands, notably Warby Parker and Everlane, and designers such as Tara St James of Study NY, are breaking with the traditional fashion calendar by creating products that are seasonless and long-lasting. Tara St James notes that the switch has enabled her “to provide constant and predictable work to her factory during “off-season” when they are less busy and would ordinarily be laying off workers.” [...] "I wanted a business model removed from a 'race to the bottom', which places unreasonable demands on manufacturers and encourages product planned obsolescence. Since abandoning the seasonal calendar, I can focus on more considered, longer lasting garments." [...] "having to compete during typical markdown periods can be difficult. It’s important for both retailers and designers that share the same vision to work together." HAG

Eco-Friendly Fashion Catches On in China
Excerpts: - One way the brand is embracing sustainability is by eliminating wrapping paper waste. Ye Shouzeng, founder of Icicle, told China Daily, “We found many consumers will throw the wrapping paper away, which is not environmentally friendly. So we created this way of packaging.

Estethica (initiative of British Fashion Council)
Excerpts about description of Estethica from Bre Cruickshank in his NJAL editorial 'ECO FASHION COMES OF AGE': "Like with any successful social movement, to attain long-term success one must appeal to the mainstream. Initiatives such as Estethica, which spotlights cutting edge designers committed to working sustainably, are doing just that. During the past six years, Estethica has established itself as a reputable and fashion forward platform, showcasing its carefully selected designers at London Fashion Week." ... "Orsola de Castro, co-curator of Estethica and founder of eco label From Somewhere, expands upon Estethica’s success, “We really did help to change perceptions, we helped to position our designers right in front of the best press and the most important buyers...and we passed the test. We have helped and supported well over 100 brands by now, provided mentoring, free stands for the very young, nurturing and advice.” HAG

Eco Fashion Comes of Age
Excerpts: “Good designers don't just consider the aesthetics of an object, but how that object comes to be - right down to the growth and manufacture of it.” [by journalist and filmmaker Leah Borromeo] "There is a need for a clear delineation of ‘eco fashion’ itself, so as to avoid the term’s devaluation. A term like eco or green does not have a strict dictionary definition, so it’s always been open to interpretation and misinterpretation,” [by academic and author Sass Brown] "Having a more in depth 'story' behind a garment gives us more to relate to and can be quite empowering,” [by environmentalist and sustainability expert Jocelyn Whipple] "We need to divert the course of all industry. This can’t be niche - it has to be global." [by Orsola de Castro, co-curator of Estethica and founder of eco label From Somewhere] HAG

Conscious shopping platform by Belgium fashion designer Bruno Pieters (www.brunopieters.com links to Honest.by) who also has his own brand.

Honest By was the first one to herald a “revolutionary” new statement, as world's first 100% transparent fashion company and pioneer in price transparency. Honest By publishes its entire supply chain for every product it creates and translates this into total price transparency.

In 2014 Bruno Pieters established the Future Fashion Designer Scholarship (FFDS). It is designed to support students with the ambition to work in a transparent and sustainable way outside the existing fashion mould.
