Brand Transparency

Who answered our brand transparency questions?

Sophie Claussen – CEO at AVENIR Circular Fashion.

Fair Trade

FairtradeNeuMärz

How do you ensure "Fair Trade" manufacturing?

Our fabrics are pre-loved textiles from the Berlin donation center ‘Textilhafen’. We carefully select the pre loved textiles to produce your finest upcycling products. We also use surplus coming from fabric wholesalers, designers and factories throughout Germany. This allowes us to buy more metre, to produce some ready to shop products that will always be available.

Social Justice

We only produce in Berlin under fair working conditions. We know all our talented tailors and seamstressers. If we produce outside of germany, we produce under fair Working conditions in Portugal.

Organic Material

Which "Organic Material" do you work with? What makes this material sustainable? And what makes it better compared to conventional material?

For our T-Shirts we only use 100% BCI certified organic Cotton.

Upcycled Material

UpcycledNEUMärz09

Which "Upcycled Material" do you work with? What makes this material sustainable? And what makes it better compared to conventional material?

Recreated fashion is the most sustainable way of producing fashion. We believe the way how we source our textiles and how we produce our fashion is important to really set a statement. Fashion is the 2nd most polluting industry and we need to act now - Because there is no planet B! Our fabrics are pre-loved textiles from missionary centers and surplus from wholesalers. We carefully select the pre-loved textiles to produce your finest recreated products on demand. This way we are cutting out emissions.

Local Production

LocalNeuMärz10_7

Where and why are your products manufactured "locally"?

Our collections are produced locally and made to order in Berlin. We do that because we up-cycle and get our pre-loved textiles from the Berlin City Mission. With its local location in Berlin, AVENIR can save emissions and help to secure meaningful jobs and promote manual activities.

Zero Waste

Zerowasteneumärz09

Which processes in your supply chain are "Zero Waste"?

On AVENIR you'll find exclusive pieces of high fashion made on demand: to minimise waste and environmental impact we only produce as many items as are sold.

Vegan

VeganNeuMärz

How can you ensure that at least 50% of your total product range is "Vegan"?

We don't use any materials where animals had to die for.

Cultural Support

How do you "culturally support" local traditions and communities, democratic politics and education, especially in the countries where your brand operates?

We integrate talented tailors and seamstressers with an immigration backround, into our local production in Berlin. Where most of the times we learn more through many talented skills, then we can provide knowledge.
