Mission Statement

"𝑬𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒄𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒇𝒂𝒊𝒓𝒍𝒚 𝒎𝒂𝒅𝒆 𝒇𝒂𝒔𝒉𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒔𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒃𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒏𝒐𝒓𝒎." - Anke Wonder, Founder

Anke Wonders collections combine both ethics and elegant aesthetics by creating high-quality products that are colorful yet sustainable. I believe that animals don't belong in the fashion production in any form. For that reason, no leather, fur, wool, silk or any other animal products are used. Furthermore, I believe that everyone who is involved in creating our gaments and their materials deserve respect through safe work conditions and fair wages. I also believe that we should use responsibly the resources of our planet and therefore, I choose fabrics that have a lower impact on the planet or upcycle already existing materials. 

Fabric Glossary:

🦄 Unused fabric in stock that has been remaining from a previous collection. It is also the fabric that I received because there was no purpose anymore for them. Instead of donating these fabrics with the risk of maybe ending up in the landfill, they are used for small quantity or one-of-a-kind garments. The term "unused fabric in stock" is not the same as "deadstock fabrics" that are bought from factories as so-called leftover fabrics. With deadstock fabric, it is uncertain if it was a true factories overproduction or an intentionally produced fabric as a game of price calculation.

🌱 Linen
Linen is known for its very strong, absorbent, anti-bacterial fiber that dries fast. Because linen fibers are hollow,  linen garments keep you cool and fresh in hot and humid weather as well as nice and warm in the winter.
Isn´t that the perfect combination?!

What means GOTS certified?

GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard. The worldwide accepted GOTS seal is given to products when their entire process of cultivation, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution matches ecological and social criteria. That means for example that the chemical input is controlled and regulations of toxicity and biodegradability have to be met. Also, work conditions need to be safe with reasonable work hours, minimum wages, and no child  labor. Learn more about the social and environmental criteria of the GOTS seal.
