We would like to inform you that our production is still running, of course with all the necessary safety precautions. However, we cannot say how the development of the situation will affect our business in general. We could say that clothing is a necessity of daily life, but at the same time we could ask how the distribution of this need can be most efficient and resource-saving in the current situation.
Ultimately, this question can only be decided by the customer through his buying behaviour. To do this, however, they must have the necessary information that is associated with a purchase and thus the support of the company.
We do not sell items from stock in order to save resources. All products ordered are custom prints and this is the big difference to the retail trade, which can lower prices by means of quantity discounts in purchasing. Whether everything is actually sold remains questionable in individual cases, as does the economic damage that clothing donations can cause to local markets. However, it is no secret either that the returned goods are in too many cases destroyed instead of being offered again. We do not wish to follow this approach. An explanation is not necessary because it is self-evident.
We see it this way: of course, from time to time, there are some exchanges of clothes due to unsuitable sizes. We check every return and offer these in perfect condition in our category "Sale". These are reduced single pieces. The costs of quality checking, storage and repackaging are covered by us, because we do not want goods to be produced that serve no purpose except to be destroyed again.
We have a dedicated goal to always offer the most sustainable and fairest product. Our product selection will be measured by this and - according to the business and social circumstances - constantly change. The guidelines of our suppliers already meet the requirements of the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) and the Fair Labor Association (FLA).
So we can't seriously tell anyone why you should order clothes right now. We can only encourage people to think about how and with whom we want to trade now and in the future.
