for us it is important, that brands have a social impact. this can be in different ways - for example by supporting projects, offering safe spaces to work or teaching new skills. here are some of our brands and their social impact:
florence from YOOMEE (white blouse on the photo on the left) works with local artisans and a women's association in marrakech. the women's association Al Kawtar offers all-day care. this includes meals, a room for physical rehabilitation, technical, medical and personal support and embroidery training for girls and women with disabilities who have not learned a profession.
the goal of Attached is not only to create various fashion accessories but also to have a social impact. they manufacture their products in collaboration with swiss foundations that employ people with health impairments and help them reintegrate into the workforce.
at Fidea you can find many fun products that are sure to make you smile. fidea is very conscious about their manufacturing. most of their products are handmade in social institutions, supporting and empowering people from less privileged backgrounds and / or with disabilities..
sustainability means something different to everyone. for us it is not about being perfect but trying to make a more positive impact through products and production. here are some examples of what sustainability means to us and our brands:
for the production nette rose make sure they rather sell out than overproduce, hence planning their production sustainably. from the materials to the thread and the packaging used, everything is done and chosen with sustainability in mind. they work with left over fabrics and threads and therefore give new life to something that would otherwise go to waste.
we're all about materials and so is JAN 'N JUNE. all their items are fairly and transparently produced in portugal and poland, using only materials such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, lyocell, and many more. each and every one of their final items are provided with a qr-code showing its eco-id, from the supply chain to final production. they also use no plastic to pack their products and re-use all of their cardboard boxes.
this is another story of how waste can be turned into something great! PARAFINA sunglasses are made from plastic, PET and rubber waste. each material has its own benefits and make great lightweight glasses.
our home is in kreis 5 in zurich. we care about our city and the people living in it! since the beginning we have always supported local brands and production. here are some of our local love stories:
when Morena was still a student at STF (Schweizerische Textil Fachschule) she already sold some of her products at collab. she also held a fashion show for her final project in our pfingstweid store. today she has her own brand and produces everything in her atelier close to bellevue. we are proud to offer a range of her locally produced pieces.
Emma from Circle Soaps produces all of her soaps herself in dürnten (close to zurich). she aims to be as eco-friendly and zero-waste as possible. she even uses flowers and herbs she has grown in her own garden for some of her soaps.
did you know we don't only have products from other brands but also produce some products ourselves? in our langstrasse store we have our own little atelier. here our team member like laura (pictured here) make scrunchies, baby bibs, earrings, nuggiketteli and much more.
