At The Slow Label, we are guided by our values in every decision we make. We source sustainable materials, work with ethical suppliers and advocate for a more conscious consumerism. Our aim is to slow down the fast-paced fashion industry by approaching things with an honest and improvement-oriented mindset.
Our capsule collections consist of garments that are timeless and versatile — two key factors in making clothing more sustainable and creating long-lasting positive change.
Getting dressed is a daily ritual — buying clothes shouldn’t be. We encourage you to continuously make conscious choices and cherish what you already have. Be an editor of your own creative world and see your wardrobe as a curation of things that make up your identity.
Meet the team
Sustainable fashion activist Anna-Laura Kummer is the founder and creative director of The Slow Label. The team wouldn't be complete without Renate, our customer experience manager, and Nicole, our content and community manager.
Sustainability is at the core of our business. It is not just a term, but rather a driving force behind what we do. From the components that make up our garments to the sustainable printing service we use to print our packaging materials — we always question the status quo and try to find more sustainable solutions.
Each of our product pages shows a detailed description of the textiles and trims used to make our garments. We mostly work with textiles made of lyocell TENCEL™, certified organic wool and certified organic cotton.
In terms of material use, we strive to better ourselves with every collection. It is important for us to only use natural, renewable, recycled, biodegradable and/or low-impact materials. Both the fabrics as well as trims like buttons, threads rubber bands and labels are sourced consciously.
Ethical Suppliers and manufacturers
The artisans and manufacturers we work with are the foundation of our business. We value the close relationship we have with our production teams around Europe and Morocco. We currently have a carefully selected network of manufacturers and suppliers in Germany, Austria, Lithuania, Poland and Slovakia. We disclose our supply chains on our product pages and seek to visit each manufacturer we work with at least once a year. Due to covid, some planned visits were not possible in 2020.

We believe sustainability goes hand-in-hand with transparency, which is why we have followed the example set by other innovative brands and introduced more transparency in several aspects of our brand. (which should be the new normal)
Consumers should know what they are paying for in order to better understand the value of the products they purchase. We have therefore included a price breakdown on each product page, as well as an educational page explaining the makeup of retail prices in general.
Transparent supply chain
On our product pages, we disclose the makeup of each garment. This includes information on which materials have been used to make both the fabric as well as trims like buttons, threads, rubber bands and labels. We are constantly improving the transparency of our supply chains and are doing our best to disclose as much detail as possible. Exact fiber origins, supply chains for trims and dyeing processes are topics we are actively working on making more transparent.
Sustainability reports and improvements
We added a page to our website that will continuously show areas of improvement as we evolve into a more holistically sustainable brand. We believe in the power of self-reflection and honesty. Therefore, any issues and solutions will be disclosed there.
We encourage you to ask questions, get in touch with us and stay curious!
