03/17 Sweater White
03/17 – our first unisex Sweater featuring a v-neckline made from 100% Organic Cotton. We love tennis and the 80ies, and wanted to re-invent those cable-knitted V-necks jumpers. Fits slightly loose and goes with everything from jeans to bare legs.
Lena is 178 cm, a German size 36 and wearing our size M.
ABOUT THE FABRIC
100% Organic Cotton, GOTS certified.
WHO MADE THIS SWEATER
This sweater is designed in Munich by our mastermind and fantastic tailor Sabine Dicklberger. It is produced by our manufacturing partner Schneiderei Winkler in Germany.
WHAT IS SO GOOD ABOUT THIS LONGSLEEVE
The Material. Organic Cotton is a hero. The production does not require chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or defoliants, and the social impact improves the well-being of the farmers. Head over to our CONSCIOUS FASHION GUIDE for more information on Organic Cotton.
LET'S SPEAK ABOUT THE PRICE
Transparency is essential to us, and therefore we are quite clear about the costs of each item. From designing the samples with our master tailor to pattern making, the cost of the fabric as well as the cost of the hardware (e.g. button, linings, threads), the manufacturing costs to marketing costs (including the photographer, model, location, hair, and make-up artist, travel expenses and advertising costs for working with influencers and other advertisers). We enlisted all incurred costs involved during the process from our idea to the final product. In case you have any questions, please feel free to contact us; we're happy to get in touch with you if there is a need for further clarification.
