We have great news!

After having researched many options to garment dye our t-shirts we've found Alchemilla, a small dyeing workshop where handicapped people can have a regular job. Alchemilla is beautifully located in a former cloister in the village of Oberhofen at the Lake of Thun with spectacular views of the highest peaks of the Swiss Alps.

The first batch is dyed over the next 2-3 weeks and we'll definitely keep you posted!

Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and.. Seek 2018

It. was. intense.

The Berlin Fashion Week comprises a multitude of official events and trade shows and of course even more smaller happenings.

We attended the Ethical Fashion Show as visitors in order to get a vibe and some infos on the ethical fashion scene. We couldn't call us an urban brand without having a peek at Seek, a massive trade show for all the streetwear brands. It's quite overwhelming at first, but if you take your time to look at the individual exhibitors you'll feel more comfortable. We've been impressed with the style and quality of a few brands. And we've been really disappointed to see some brands not making an effort or rather not having a clear concept. It's definitely something we have to work on, too. Which we did btw, countless hours of discussions and argueing back and forth over our future.

Wenke and I have reached a point, where we feel we're pushing in the right direction. You'll see some changes in the future. ANYA will definitely be more "European"...

We'll keep you posted!

 

What's cooking

Hi everyone out there!

We hope you you had a great start in to 2018 and you're excited for more ethical  and Fairtrade fashion!

We can't wait to attend the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin next week. The industry's leaders will be there showcasing their latest collection alongside major conventional brands. We'll be there to network, meet potential suppliers and simply to get inspired.

We've been testing natural dyes in order to offer you more colour variety. I shall keep you posted on the process.. :-)

And don't worry, we still love New York eventhough we're not physically present anymore.
