Sustainable Brand: ARMEDANGELS

The German brand ARMEDANGELS makes stylish, trendy and ethical clothes for women and for men. Sustainability, fair trade, ethical practices, and social work are at the core of the brand. For their pieces, they use organic natural fabrics such as cotton, wool, and linen. And they also use semi-synthetics fabrics such as Lenzing, Tencel, Lyocell and recycled plastic. All clothing is made in fair trade factories where people work under fair conditions. The brand works together with three organizations: Ratham, Trinkwasserwald, and Viva con Agua. ARMEDANGELS donate from their profits from every article of clothing sold.

The brand is doing well in terms of changing the perception of eco-friendly clothing being “hippy-like” and not fashionable to it being perceived as cool and stylish.

From the ARMEDANGELS collection of www.watmooi.nl, I got the denim skirt. Here are some pictures:

Alchemist: Sustainable Dutch Brand

Last year I discovered the brand Alchemist. Scrolling down the sustainable webshop http://www.watmooi.nl I found the new items added from the Dutch brand. On this post I am going to show you how I style my favorite t-shirt from their summer collection.

But first, a little information about this conscious brand. Alchemist is a high-end fashion brand that makes clothing from sustainable fabrics. The brand was founded by the Dutch designer Caroline Mewe. She is based in Amsterdam. For her collections, she combines influences from her childhood in nature with the inspiration she draws from the city.

Fair and sustainable fashion is at the core of the brand. For the brand, is important to know in which countries, by which people and under what conditions the clothes of Alchemist are been made. The team visits their producers at least once a year, to monitor the conditions on site. The producers have a certificate for social-ethical business practices. Alchemist has signed the International Sustainable Clothing and Textile Covenant and is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation. As a result, they are certain that the factories with which they work are controlled and that the workers work under good conditions.

Alchemist produces two collections per year, always paying close attention to the fact that the designs can easily be combined with earlier collections. Their quality requirements are high because what is well made will last a long time.

On these series of pictures, I am wearing the pink t-shirt named ‘Barda’. The pictures were taken by the photographer Celia Alma from @thelightboxtales.

Sustainable Brand: Röhnisch

Spring is my favorite season to go back to working out regularly. With the sunny weather and the trees blooming everywhere, I find the motivation to get into my sports clothes and out of the door. Recently, I discovered the sustainable Danish brand ‘Röhnisch’ at the webshop http://www.watmooi.nl

The Swedish brand Röhnisch makes stylish, trendy and comfortable sportswear for women. Sustainability and ethical practices are at the core of the brand. For their pieces, they use recycled materials. All clothing is made in factories where people work under fair conditions. There is a “Code of Conduct” that all their suppliers must adhere to. This includes agreements on, among other things, exploitation, child labor, discrimination, and the environment.

The brand works together with the organization “Hand in hand”. This organization is working in a world without poverty and child labor. In India, the organizations work together to help women start their own businesses. They do this by sharing knowledge about business operations, but also by offering “microfinance”. Röhnisch has also been a partner of Pink Ribbon since 2014 and has sports bras in their collection that are suitable for women with prostheses.

From the Röhnisch collection of www.watmooi.nl, I got the flattering dots tights and sports bra. Here are some pictures:

Tutu Outfit Ideas

Sustainable Outfit Of The Week

Doing a closet detox is a good way of realizing how much clothes we have, how many of them we like and how many of them we simply don’t wear. One of my friends was detoxing her closet and she found a light blue tutu skirt that she only wore once and never again. She gave it to me and I started to find out how to wear it.

On these series of pictures, I show you how I style the skirt in different outfits.

Beige Coat Outfit

Sustainable Outfit Of The Week

Going to the second-hand market has become part of my life. During the winter times, the market is once per month. And from the spring on, it’s twice per month. Normally, when I go to the market I don’t spend much time on it. I walk through it and only check a market stall if I see potential in it. One of the days that I went to the market, I found a beige coat. It was only €2. I bought it without fitting. I washed it first and then realized how great of a coat it is. I can combine it with a lot of items from my closet.

On these series of pictures, I show you how I style the coat. The pictures were made by the photographer Celia Alma from @thelightboxtales

Sustainable Brand: Teym

Scrolling down Instagram I found an Amsterdam based brand that caught my attention: Teym. As soon as I started researching I fell in love with their ethical vision.

Sustainability, minimalism, and quality are at the core of Teym. The brand launches only one item per year. The goal is to create One Impeccable Wardrobe; one item at the time.  Developing a new item takes a full year. For every piece, there is a well thought extensive research, design process, and production process.  Every item has been developed in Teym’s atelier in Amsterdam and the factories are all in Europe.

TEYM products per year
Items of Teym from 2015 to 2018

A healthy work environment and a fair wage for the garment workers is a priority for Teym. It is important to the brand to know in which countries, by which people and under what conditions the items are being made. Because the factories are in Europe, the team is able to visit them on a regular basis and ensure fair labor practices.

From their items, the brand gifted me The Sweatsuit. I got the Zip Hoodie and The Sweatpants both in camel color. They are made from 100% cotton in an ethical factory in Portugal, where the workers are specialized in jersey.

On these series of pictures, I show you how I style The Sweatpants in different outfits. The pictures were made by photographer Marisa Elisa.

Pink Skirt Outfit

Sustainable Outfit Of The Week

Strolling down the second-hand market of the city I live in, I stepped upon a shiny pink skirt. At first, I was hesitant to buy it. I was afraid that the color wouldn’t look good on me. But after I saw the opening on the sides and realized that the skirt was as good as new I decided to give it a try. After I washed it I tried it on and started making outfits. I discovered that this skirt is very versatile. It fits with a lot of items from my closet.

On these series of pictures, I show you how I style the skirt in two different outfits. The pictures were made by the photographer Celia Alma from @thelightboxtales
