Less is more in terms of buying and tossing away clothes. We think that a consciously build wardrobe is based on high-quality basics without being basic.
Made to love & Made to last is key.
All our products are manufactured in Germany, that enables us to keep our pricing structure transparent. Every product page informs about the costs incurred during the production process of the piece selected.
Our perception of conscious fashion is holistic in terms of materials used and labour involved. We care about the environment and the people who make our clothes.
Who is hello'ben?
We'd like to say hi
hello'ben is a team of people sharing the love for nice stuff. We also share the idea of doing our part to improve some conditions we all live with. It's not a missionary vision, rather the awareness that the way we live our lives has a bunch of negative consequences.
We are far from being perfect, and we all do hedonistic stuff we love. Nevertheless, we believe, if everybody works for a little change, the effect might be huge. In our perception, "ben" is an attitude, a characteristic, and a lifestyle altogether. That's why we called ourselves hello ben, a little reminder to be nice to others and add a bit of consciousness.
Shop till you drop...
How it all started
We love beautiful things, but the pleasure of shopping was haunted by remorse or compromises regarding style and quality within recent years.
The idea popped up, to create something new, something you can buy with a good conscience, something that is aesthetic without a compromise, something that is produced without greater harm, but with great value for all who are part of the process and something our friends would wear. Having that in mind, we pooled our strengths and started to figure out who hello'ben is going to be.
Who is part of the team?
We're a team of many, but first say hello to Sabine, our master tailor in Munich.
An idea is uniting us, but as professionals, we share different backgrounds, enabling us to see the whole picture and assess distinct perspectives.
Apart from creatives minds in Munich, we have experienced hands in Jahnsdorf and Malgersdorf as well as fabric suppliers in the U.K. and Denmark, providing us fabrics, craftsmanship, and sewing skills. This was our story so far; we hope we can add many more chapters soon and have the hello ben universe growing slowly...
Follow our journey...
We love to share it with you
- Nicola, Founder
One more thing to add, we would like you to tie you in, in our story. We aim for transparency in production and our way of growing into a 100% sustainable, resource-saving, & craftmanship-appreciating company.
As we are still in the fledgling state, our potentialities are still a bit limited. Nevertheless, we are continually working to improve our production process and create more transparency. The fabrics we use are sought from external companies, working as sustainable as they can.
