this piece is part of our collaboration with our dear friends from YOOMEE.

Care

caring for recycled polyester

wash up to 30 degrees (this is always the most sustainable choice when using a washing machine) and use a fabric bag to keep your items from breaking because of zippers. to avoid microplastics from floating to the oceans, use a guppyfriend washing bag.

what is recycled polyester?

most often recycled polyester is made out of industrial waste or post-consumer plastics like PET bottles. turning PET bottles into clothing means grinding, melting and extruding new fibers.

why love recycled polyester?

taking what is already there and giving it new life is super cool already - but recycled polyester is also super versatile! from waterproof bags to silky smooth fabrics you can do so many things. 

recycled polyester production

producing recycled polyester uses up to 90% less water than regular polyester. still you have to be careful and only choose certified recycled fabrics. we think there are pros and cons with this fabric.  the main pro arguments: keeping plastic away from landfills and the ocean and a waterproof and stretchy fabric - just like polyester, but uses less energy to make. still, recycling has its boundaries and recycling uses a lot of energy too. also, recycled polyester can still release micro plastics.

Production

handmade in a women's association for women with physical disabilities in marrakech

About the brand

based in: zurich, switzerland
founded by: florence morgenstern
products: keychains, bags, accessories

YOOMEE was founded by florence in 2014 whilst she was travelling around the world. during her travels she met many people and got to know their stories and handcraft. this was her inspiration to start her own brand. today YOOMEE works closely with a women's association in marrakech, morocco for women with physical disabilities. through this work, the association can also offer physiotherapy to people outside of the association. YOOMEE is all about handcraft - that is also why a lot of YOOMEE products are inspired directly by the craft of indiviual artisans. this is how the idea of the keytags started. YOOMEE works with a lot of left over materials to ensure that there is no over production. all of their leather products are made using left over leather only - this makes each bag series a very limited edition! 

YOOMEE and collab are connection through a deep friendship between the founders of both brands. for many years YOOMEE and collab shared an office - and today you can find the YOOMEE flagship store in the collab pfingstweid store. there are many shared projects between us and YOOMEE and we are super happy to work alongside YOOMEE. the slogan "better together" really comes to life with this match :) 
 


YOOMEE stands for

handcraft - social - personal relationships with artisans
