Where are my clothes coming from?

Faire Mode: Woher kommt meine Kleidung?

Sustainable & fair –
where do my clothes come from?

A sustainable lifestyle is gaining more and more importance in our social life. On the one hand, sustainable fashion which is produced using natural materials in a resource-saving manner, but on the other hand: the production conditions are also becoming important. The most common question is: Where do my clothes come from? Nowadays a large part of our clothing is still produced at low cost countries like Bangladesh, India or China. The conditions in the local factories are not on a decent level: a low wage which is not enough to live on, inhuman working conditions and a dramatic environmental pollution during the production. These conditions are often the order of the day.

So how can you be sure that you are buying a Fairtrade product? To wear fashion with a good feeling, there are various quality seals and certificates that guarantee a transparent supply chain and require high social standards. You can find all most important seals at one glance here:
