Season Impact Report
Welcome to our new season impact report. Have a look at where we stand and follow our journey as we lower our negative impact. The new impact report replaces our former Sustainability-Reports and gives an insight into our sustainability efforts each season.
We put a lot of effort into finding the right fabric for our garments. We always seek the finest quality to create high-class and long-lasting pieces, while at the same time, find fabrics made of lower-impact materials. Have a look at what our A/W 2022 styles are made of.
MATERIALS USED IN A/W 2022*
Viscose and Wool are our most used materials.* The share of wool is especially high in our Autumn/Winter seasons as most of our signature coats are made of wool. We always ensure that the wool is mulesing-free and we only use viscose from producers which have been rated “Green Shirt” in Canopy’s Hot Button ranking.
* Data based on volumes used for shell and linings in A/W 22 collection
**Other: Cashmere, TENCEL™ Lyocell, Linen, Elasthane, Cow Leather, Lyocell (recyled), Acetate, Cotton.
Distribution of low impact materials
We have developed a preferred material framework to guide us when choosing materials. We aim to increase our share of Class A & B materials from season to season.
A: Target (e.g. Organic Cotton, Recycled Wool)
B: Target (e.g. Viscose with Green Shirt rating)
C: Transition (e.g. Mulesing-free Wool)
D: Transition (e.g. Cotton, Polyester)
E: Never (e.g. Conventional Leather)
* Data based on number of styles in the A/W 2022 collection that consist of min. >50% of a material in respective class.
We want to reduce our usage of fossil-based synthetic fibers. This season we used 29,3% of fossil based synthetic fibers, like polyester, for shell and linings.
* Data based on volumes used for shell and linings in A/W 2022.
We mainly work with manufacturing partners (Tier 1) and fabric suppliers (Tier 2) located in Europe. One reason is a shorter supply chain. We are aware that transportation is only a small share in the CO2 footprint of a garment. Nevertheless, we also try to place our orders with manufacturers and fabric suppliers with the shortest distance between each other. Additionally, we are working with manufacturing partners based in China, who we’ve known for a long time and trust in their great expertise and know-how.
WHERE WE MANUFACTURE
WHERE OUR FABRICS COME FROM
In total, we have compensated 52,7 tons of CO2 for the first half of 2022. This is 4,7 times of the average per capita CO2 emissions in Germany (11,2 tons).*

4,5% of our orders from China were shipped by air freight.
95,5% of our orders from China were shipped by sea freight.
We want to be a strong advocate for diversity in fashion. It is important for us to offer a wide range of sizes so that our customers feel comfortable and confident. Currently, we offer a size range from 32 to 46 for most of our garments. We don’t want to stop here and are working on extending our size range.
