Short Description

To raise awareness of the enormous pollution of the fashion industry and to positively inspire.

Detailed Description

The tribe consists on the one hand of a design branch (haute couture collection) and on the other hand of a fine art branch (ready to wear paintings). Within the design branch, a zero waste haute couture collection is released once a year, produced in a socially and environmentally conscious manner. This collection is converted into products that are made from zero waste materials and consist of utensils that function as an alternative to fast fashion products. Think of clothing and (home) accessories. 

Ready to wear paintings are created from the fine art branch. The cloths are made up of all textile remnants that arose during the making of the design collection. This creates an extra circular layer because the previously used materials are already being reused. The cloths are offered in different sizes.

The entire goal of the label is to create awareness I do this by mentioning this in the name, showing my production process as transparent as possible on social media channels and documenting this, by telling my story in various interpreter shows and podcasts and to be transparent about how the costs are determined.
