“Slow fashion is when quality goes beyond quantity, when we prioritize fewer and finer garments with sustainable production and minimal negative environmental impact. Slow fashion is an attitude to fashion where reflection and awareness are in focus. ” From Johanna Nilsson’s and Jennie Johansson’s book Slow fashion - your guide to smart and sustainable fashion. (Wordfront publisher, 2016).
We produce per demand and therefor we don’t keep a big stock and everything is made in Sweden, Gothenburg by us at Marloe Jr.
This garment is made of reused fabrics from residual stock. The fabric is produced in Sweden, just like the garment and consists of the natural materials viscose and/or eco cotton.
Throwing textile is a waste of resources and by recycling, we ensure that it is not thrown, and that way we save natural resources AND the energy it had been required to produce a new one.
Organic cotton is generally defined as cotton that is grown organically in subtropical countries such as India, Turkey, China, and parts of the USA from non-genetically modified plants, and without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides.
OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an independent global testing and certification system for textile raw, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. The certification means that the textile in the finished product is free from unhealthy chemicals. The certification system was introduced in 1992 and the main purpose is to develop test criteria, limit values and test methods on a scientific basis.
