ABOUT THE FABRIC
100% Bamboo Silk. The raw material is 100% organically grown bamboo (OCIA certification for international standards, NOP for USA standards) from sustainably managed bamboo forests (FSC certification).
OEKO-TEST 100 CLASS I STANDARD
The use of harmful metals and chemicals in the manufacturing process is strictly controlled and uses a closed-loop system. The fabric conforms to Oeko-Tex Class 1 Standards and is safe for all uses.
WHO MADE THIS DRESS
This dress is designed in Munich by our mastermind and fantastic tailor, Sabine. It is produced by our manufacturing partner near Chemnitz in Germany.
WHAT IS SO GOOD ABOUT THIS DRESS
The material. Organic bamboo is also called vegan silk – a perfect and cruelty-free fabric providing that silky look and feel without hurting those cute silkworms.
The fit. We included some small press button inside the dress, so your neckline is safe and will adapt to every movement from dancing to running.
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.
