* Due to the launch of our new collection, this page will be updated in the next couple of days/weeks to ensure more transparency and correct information on current manufacturing processes.
The Slow Label stands for high quality, long lasting pieces. We want to slow down the fashion industry. Fair and sustainable manufacturing processes are our top priority, which is why we source our products only from certified manufacturers. Transparency is our highest principle. We encourage you to ask questions, get in touch with us and stay curious.
Where are the products made?
Some of the products you can currently see on our website are ethically made in Bangladesh, strictly supervised by the Fair Wear Foundation. However, these products will not be restocked. We are currently manufacturing the upcoming collection in Stuttgart, Germany. For more information, please refer to our Q&A page. For updates, make sure to follow us on Instagram and subscribe to our newsletter.
The Fabrics and materials
The process of selecting fabrics that the garments should be made of is tricky: You want them to be sustainably sourced and you also need to take into consideration, that one day these clothing pieces might have to be recycled. The environmental impact of a piece of clothing highly depends on the fabric it's made of. When you wash an item that contains synthetic materials (like polyester), microplastic might get into the water and end up in our oceans. For synthetic and mixed fibers, we therefore recommend using a Guppyfriend wash bag.
In terms of material use, we strive to better ourselves with every collection. By the time we launch our SS20 collection, 67% of our garments will be made of TENCEL™, 22% will be made of certified organic cotton and 11% will be made of a TENCEL™-linen-cotton mix. It is important to us to use natural, renewable, recycled, biodegradable and/or low-impact textiles.
However, we currently also sell items from other brands that contain recycled polyester and other synthetic materials.
