We are two entrepreneurs, each with their own expertise and mission. Together we want to produce sustainable clothing and offer labels a helping hand. We are an educational breeding ground for young enterprising creatives in fashion. We bring the market into contact with (graduate) students.Marty Paunussa / Founder, Head of Product DevelopmentHaving a streetwear label has taught me that it is not easy to find the right suppliers. Communicating with foreign countries is not easy and importing and transport can cause many problems. We help by sharing our extensive network and providing you with good advice to prevent these problems.
Daniëlle de Jong / Founder, Head of TailoringAs a teacher, I train tailors who have difficulty finding a job. The profession is undervalued, while we have well-trained professionals in the Netherlands. By convincing the market of the many advantages of producing in the Netherlands, we create more job opportunities for this craftsmanship.
Clothing production must come back to the Netherlands. It is a polluting industry that can be made more sustainable. Small quantities, high quality and minimal transport result in sustainable clothing. The working conditions in the current industry are not good, but our clothing is produced fairly.
'Made in Holland'
Producing abroad causes unnecessary CO2 emissions. Firstly, because the high minimum purchase abroad ensures that young designers are left with a large unsold stock. This is eventually thrown away. Secondly, because the clothing has to be transported several times. Sometimes from the other side of the world. And thirdly, production takes place abroad with environmentally polluting chemicals. The low prices abroad ensure low quality, which means the lifespan of the garment is short.The 'Made in Holland' label is becoming increasingly valuable. In addition to the fact that consumers are becoming increasingly critical of the origin of the products they buy, the Netherlands has well-trained professionals who can supply high-quality clothing. By producing locally, there is insight into the production method and working conditions.The price advantage abroad therefore does not outweigh all the disadvantages that importing entails. Honest and sustainable clothing of high quality is the solution and will result in higher reliability and bond with the brand. Through our high level of involvement and services, we can help labels achieve sustainable goals. In addition, communicating with us is easy and visiting our production company is no problem.
People should be able to express themselves creatively. (Former) students can develop further with us. We make our studio available in the evenings so that you can work on your own projects in a discovery-oriented manner. We think networking is important, once a quarter we organize a networking event where the professional field comes into contact with (former) students. In this way, students build their own network. Developments and innovations in the field are central. We make it easier to stay informed after studying. We offer a helping hand by sharing our network, and ask our network to do the same. In this way we create a breeding ground of creative doers in fashion.
Making the fashion industry more sustainable is a great mission for a better world. We believe that good education also plays a major role in this. As a recognized training company, we give our interns a broader view of the world and our society. When we share our experience with (starting) labels, the intern can experience this up close. They see clothing production from our customer's idea to the delivery of the end product and contribute to this. Students should be given the opportunity to orientate themselves, we offer internships for Fashion Tailor, Fashion Design and Fashion Product Coordinator. These different functions will work together in our company, allowing us to apply what we have learned at school.
