Organic cotton tank top with screen print
It's nice that you want to know more about me as your respectful companion. It's important to me that I have absolutely no secrets from you, because that's the only way you'll feel better with me.
My full transparency
My added value
I travel 12,505 kilometers from the organic cotton field in Tanzania to the finished printed T-shirt.
It is important to me that all partners who have taken care of my manufacture come from Europe. There's a lot of Switzerland in me, you can find out more about it in the “Swissness” section.
My price transparency
A price is always relative. The fact is that huge margins are charged on textiles, usually 3 to 7 times the production costs.
I'm not a mass-produced product and I'm usually made to order especially for you, because I don't want to be part of a discount battle.
My margin is slim and is used to pay rent, product development and salaries.
Creating training and jobs in Switzerland is more important to me than wearing one of the countless eco or ESG labels. By the way, there are over 450 of them worldwide.
I would much rather trust my European and Swiss manufacturing partners.

We source our fair trade organic cotton from organic farms in Tanzania, around 1,800 small farmers.
The cotton farmers only use GMO-free seeds for cultivation.
The small farmers are involved in the organic farms in a participatory manner and have worked for Remei Tanzania Ltd. Access to coaching and training to continuously educate yourself in organic farming.
The raw cotton is separated and processed into fibers in the ginning plant at Bibiti Ginneries in Tanzania.
The final product is the pressed raw cotton bale.
After a long journey of 10,222 kilometers, the organic cotton bales reach the Tearfil spinning mill in Portugal.
This is where the magic happens. The organic cotton yarn is spun from the approximately 200 kilogram bales of long-staple cotton.
The organic cotton yarn cones arrive at the Handel + Diller knitting mill in Germany after 1,966 kilometers.
The specialists from Balingen knit our heavy yet super soft fabric from it.
It is 144 kilometers from Balingen to Fehraltorf, Switzerland, and one of Europe's leading textile dyeing companies, E. Schellenberg Textildruck AG, is located here.
The company is a model in all respects. Starting with the production site in the middle of a residential area - which requires an ecological production method - through to wastewater treatment with one of the most modern systems in Europe.
We could continue the list at will, keywords local heating network waste heat utilization, 50% less water consumption, CO2 neutral production, Detox to Zero guidelines, but there is not enough space for that.
