I don’t want my brand to be a part of fast fashion. It was really important to find a good ethical manufacturer when producing this. I lived in Indonesia for a year and really got to know the place and the people that produced the collection. The factory doesn’t use any plastic, pays good wages, treats animals, the environment and the workers with respect as well as having an inspiring safe workplace. You can find out more details on how they are producing responsibly on the webpage
, where I also share the address of the factory. I strive to be completely transparent, which I think is really important in the fashion industry today.
I also didn't want to use any plastic in the packaging or branding. I use alternatives like recycled paper and organic bamboo instead. Deliberately producing timeless clothes in small quantities was also a big factor. I’m very proud that Søster has worked exclusively with women-owned businesses so far. It’s definitely not easy for a small brand to strive for sustainability, but I’m doing my best to evolve and be responsible.
