Sewing without harming the environment. Making clothes yourself but with consideration for people, animals and our planet. This cannot be taken for granted because the manufacturing of fabrics, yarn and haberdashery often involves methods that are not good for the world. Sewing yourself can also be fast fashion if you don't pay attention to the materials, the origin and the production method!
Atelier Goldfaden would like to offer an alternative way. When choosing the fabrics I pay attention to sustainable production and fair working conditions. I am happy to bring you closer to fabrics that make the world a little better:
These are natural fibers that are biodegradable. These are fabrics that are produced according to organic standards (cotton!) or that grow like weeds so that as few resources as possible are used for cultivation (hemp!). These are fabrics made from plants that grow on European soil and are spun and woven in the same place (linen!). And these are also fabrics that are carefully hand-woven and dyed in India under fair conditions (ikats and block prints!). And these are innovative materials that are manufactured in a closed cycle (Lyocell!). Fabrics that simply want a second life (second hand!) or that are rewoven from recycled materials.
All of this is sustainability and I'm sure it is here where you will find your dream fabric.
And by the way: sewing thread, buttons and accessories are also available in organic quality or made from recycled raw materials!
