    Tretorn is a sustainable fashion brand and an innovation driven company with high quality, functional and contemporary products in mind — it’s been a part of their DNA since 1891. Their Eco Essential rainwear merges the best from their heritage with new innovative and circular fabrics to create the future of responsible rainwear made for urban exploration. They look at sustainable innovation not only as a process to create new products. In everything they do, sustainability is key. For them, it means creating an organization and business system that provides for quality of life, while being resilient with the environment and its resources. A sustainable company is one that resembles an organic system where all of resources (human, natural and economic) are renewed and in balance for perpetuity.

    THE MAKER.

    Tretorn was founded in Helsingborg, Sweden in 1891, and has come a long way since. Today, you can find this brand in stores all over the world, but they remain committed to their living heritage in Sweden. For them, this means proven expertise in creating products that can withstand Scandinavian weather without getting in the way of everyday life. It also means creating products that are stylish and worn equally by city-dwellers and nature-lovers. Ultimately, Tretorn is about celebrating both style and practicality. In 1896, five years after the start they produced 1 million pairs of galoshes in Helsingborg and in 1900, they produced their first sneakers. Looking back they have pioneered the sneaker, the rubber boot and even the tennis ball for more than 120 years. They have been synonymous with the sport for the century. From their first rubber boots to the world’s first luxurious tennis sneakers.

    PRODUCTLINE.

    Brixtol Textiles is a sustainable fashion brand that started in a small kitchen in Stockholm, Sweden circa 2011 by two longtime friends Gustav Kjellander and Emil Holmström. The idea of parting with tradition and breaking the convention fuelled the birth of the brand and it manifested in the shape of quality clothing inspired by a combination of British workwear and the 1960’s mod culture. The garments are made of recycled wool. This wool is made out of collected used garments and production waste. The collected wool is then shredded into individual fibers and spun into new yarn. In this way they can save energy, water and decrease chemical pollution by minimizing the production of wool.

    THE MAKER.

    The duo behing Brixtol Textiles set out on a journey that eventually led them to the British Midlands, home of world leading manufacturers in traditional British outerwear. The result of this unconventional relationship is Brixtol – alternative classics for the independent and brave. The concept of exploring one’s individuality, continuous reinvention and rejecting the dull, the timid and the old-fashioned play a central role in the mindset of Brixtol.

    DID YOU KNOW…?

    The name “Brixtol” is a combination of the south district in London called Brixton and the city of Bristol. Brixton, an area where bands such as The Clash has their roots and the City of Bristol, which is one of the true hangouts for the 1960´s mods.

Clothing comes very close, of course, you wear it on your skin. Then you don’t want to wear something that has been put together in a bad way? We believe that people are not isolated beings, but are connected to their environment. According to the story, alchemists searched for the formula to make gold. They wanted to turn the ordinary into the most beautiful. By melting loose fabrics together they wanted to make the highest attainable. Alchemist follows this idea and believes that chemistry starts when the different elements come into contact with each other.

    PRODUCTLINE.

    The concept of the brand came after the birth of Javier Goyeneche’s son, Alfredo. ECOALF was born in 2009 when Javier was reflecting upon the world thinking about what we would leave to the next generation. 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.

    ECOALF is called after Javier’s son Alfredo.
