What we want to achieve

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all textiles and leather goods were sustainable? What a huge boon that would be for both the environ­ment and humanity – affec­ting people both in their daily life and in their work. To achieve this goal, we work to increase aware­ness among consu­mers and politi­cians and to increase the market share of sustainable products.
