My full transparency
My added value
I only cover 2,288 kilometers from the cotton field to the finished printed tank top.
The journey of a standard tank top is between 18,000 and 34,000 kilometers.
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 the cotton, Supreme Green Cotton®, from 45 Greek family farms in the Larisa region, who grow it in a respectful manner.
She is of carefully selected and controlled, not
genetically modified cotton seed.
Irrigation is carried out exclusively via a drip irrigation system, resulting in a 40% discount
leads to water consumption.
The cultivation is supervised by the most modern technological equipment and a selected team of experienced agronomists.
After the Supreme Green Cotton® cotton is harvested, it travels just 15 kilometers to be ginning at the Karagiorgos Ginning Mill.
At Karagiorgos, the Supreme Green Cotton® cotton is stored separately and is therefore fully traceable.
During ginning, part of the energy consumption (25%) is covered by renewable sources. By-products like the cotton cake and cotton oil that enter the food chain are also non-GMO.
After another journey of 180 kilometers, the Supreme Green Cotton® bales reach the Varvaressos spinning mill.
This is where the magic happens. The Supreme Green Cotton® yarn is spun from the approx. 200 kg bales of long-staple cotton.
For the spinning process, energy is used from renewable sources
Sources are used and the rainwater is also reused.
Energy savings are achieved by installing harmonic filters, optimizing the compressed air system and replacing fluorescent lamps. The use of a heating circuit system saves around 20,000 liters of fuel annually.
The Supreme Green Cotton® yarn cones arrive at Feinjersey Fabrics in Austria after 1,815 kilometers.
The specialists from Götzis use it to knit our super comfortable and hard-wearing interlock jersey fabric.
The production takes place with minimal energy consumption by using photovoltaic system (saves 20%), heat recovery system (saves 30%) and alternative heat sources.
It is 115 kilometers from Götzis to Fehraltorf, Switzerland, and here is one of the leading European textile dyers, E. Schellenberg Textildruck AG.
The company is a model in every respect. Starting with the production site in the middle of a residential area - which requires an ecological production method - to the wastewater treatment with one of the most modern plants in Europe.
We could continue the list at will, keywords local heating network, use of waste heat, 50% less water consumption, CO2-neutral production, Detox to Zero guidelines, but there is not enough space for that.
