Where do my jeans come from, how much water is used to produce this nice jacket?
There is no easy way to say it, but sustainable is one of the hardest things to do and to make, you have to question everything and then just come up with some better ideas....
While we were discussing all the methods used to make clothing, the only real sustainable way is buying used clothes, but we still have an urge to make something really cool and thought of some ways which are less waisting the environment. And it's not only the way something is produced, but it's also what you do with it and how long you keep it, for example if you buy an eco trousers, made of bio cotton, there is more land needed to make the cotton (so there are no pesticides they use and maybe the people get good wages) but what happens if the land they need for the bio cotton is so much more they had to cut some forest for it? Is it still eco then?
And even worse you don't really like the pants and decide to throw it in the rubbish bin.
Well anyway that's my point, it's not so black & white and while we were sorting all these things out we made some decisions. We think the most sustainable way is when you can wear something for multiple years, no season shit or fashion of this year, no just beautiful clothes for a longer stay. That's how we came up with the scarves and I will tell you more about it in this blog, that is if I'm not boring you already.....
