    Charlotte started creating jewelry in 2005. A few years after graduating in fashion she started to experiment with silver and soldering. It took quite some time to learn the skills of this handcraft, but slowly on a new jewelry label arose. Her style has become unmistakably recognizable throughout the years. Every piece expresses a feminine, contemporary, delicate style.

    THE MAKER.

    Inspired by many things in life such as art, vintage jewelry, or just that woman in the subway, Charlotte keeps on reinventing her jewelry within the borders of her handwriting. Several pieces are timeless beauties and stay in the collection for many years. The creational process is a never-ending challenge but is nonetheless one of best things of their working day. Creating a jewel that will accompany a customer in her life is the most grateful part of her job. Charlotte’s small enterprise has grown to be a grown-up company. They now employ 5 professionally graduated goldsmiths, lovely girls who create every piece by hand in the style of Charlotte. And for two years her husband Steven is fully committed to the company as a new business partner of Charlotte. They work closely with their gemstone suppliers to know exactly where the stones are mined and under what conditions.

    The concept of the brand came after the birth of Javier Goyeneche’s son, Alfredo.

With his frustration about the excessive use of the world’s natural resources, his idea was born to create a fashion brand that is truly sustainable. By integrating breakthrough technology ECOALF creates clothing and accessories made entirely from recycled materials. The brand represents the fabrics for the future generations.

    THE MAKER.

    In 2015, Ecoalf, through its own Foundation as well as the support from the HAP Foundation, embarked on its most ambitious project: Upcycling the Oceans. This is a worldwide adventure that will help remove marine debris from the bottom of the oceans thanks to the support of local fishermen. The revolutionary project aims to be replicated all over the world and its main objective is to recover trash that is destroying the sea, and transform it into top quality yarn to produce garments. This pioneering initiative has three objectives: to remove litter that damages marine ecosystems from our seas, giving a second life to recovered waste with a circular economy view, and raising awareness about the global issue that marine litter presents.

    In 2013, Inge went to Nepal for the first time and was immediately touched by the beautiful people and nature. A visit to a children’s home in Pokhara showed her that you don’t have to have children of your own to be able to do something good for a child. The power of the Nepalese women also touched her deeply. She bought handmade felt scarves from these women which she brought home for family and friends. The scarves immediately become very popular amongst her family members and friends. She was often asked if she could somehow buy more and import them to The Netherlands. This is how Sjaal met Verhaal was created!
