At Holzweiler, we keep a sustainable mindset as the foundation of everything we do. We believe that being a contemporary fashion brand today requires a lot of thoughtfulness and responsibility. We also experience the complexity that lies in this. Our main focus is to respect people and the planet in everything we do, but we also see that the journey to say that we fully do, is full of bumps and turns and that we need an excellent roadmap to stay on course.
Products that stand the test of time
Holzweiler aims to produce clothing and long-lasting products that can stand the test of time by creating tried and true classics that become meaningful to the wearer for years to come. We encourage all our customers to look after their products and opting for alterations and reparations if needed instead of discarding the item once it’s worn in. Our Holzweiler store staff will gladly help you fix the products if they do not hold the standard they should. Please consider donating or re-selling your products before discarding them.
Minimal waste, better materials
We aim to make conscious choices for every fabric we use. Making long-lasting clothing demands durable fabrics and can handle lots of usage and washes. We have increased our use of more sustainable fabrics like organic cotton, recycled polyester, nylon and wool, Eco Vero viscose, down sourced as RDS (Responsible down standard), wool sourced as RWS (Responsible wool standard), and cotton sourced as GOTS (Global organic textile standard). Our goal is to increase with even 30% more in our SS22 collection. Our Holzweiler scarves are made out of recycled wool, produced with recycled water.
We constantly work to reduce plastic in our productions, sampling process, and transportation. We have successfully removed all plastic packaging for our products made in Europe. Holzweiler items are now being packed in bags made out of innovative bioplastic based on plant components that are 100% biodegradable.
When it comes to production, Holzweiler believes in the power of collaboration and opting for long-term relationships with our manufacturers. It enables us to continuously explore new realms of sustainability together while working as a unified team across continents.
Transparency and traceability are some of our major focuses right now. Today we know all our agents and producers through our screening process. To dig deeper into our supply chain, we have invested in systems that will help us collect, gather and analyze all this information, both in terms of getting to know all the involved parts and getting to know them better.
