SUSTAINABILITY BY HELENE GALWAS

With "Helene Galwas" we want to create sustainable "wearable couture". We achieve this by using sustainable fabrics and timeless designs. Through our innovative fabrics and ideas we try to keep the impact on the environment as low as possible and limit the Co2 consumption.
With a clear statement against fast fashion, we advocate for more respect in the design craft, the raw materials and the work that goes into a single garment.

PACKAGING & LOGISTICS

LOW IMPACT

WE REDUCE OUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT BY USING RECYCLED AND REUSABLE CARTONS FOR OUR ENTIRE SHIPPING PROGRAM. THIS INCLUDES NOT USING ANY PLASTIC MATERIALS.

MADE IN EUROPE

PRODUCTION & DESIGN FROM EUROPE

WE PRODUCE IN A LONG-STANDING MANUFACTUR IN POLAND. THE SHORT SHIPPING ROUTE SAVES US A LOT OF CARBON. WE CAN ALSO BETTER CONTROL THE WORKING CONDITIONS ON SITE.

PRODUCTION

SUSTAINABLE & FLEXIBLE

OUR MANUFACTUR IS REALLY TRADITIONAL. THE EMPLOYEES WORK UNDER FAIR CONDITIONS. WE CONCENTRATE ON SMALL CAPSULES WITH LIMITED QUANTITIES.

SMART DESIGN

LONGLASTING WEARABLE COUTURE

WE CREATE TIMELESS & LONG-LASTING DESIGNS TO PROVIDE OUR CUSTOMERS WITH PIECES THAT LAST FOR A LIFETIME. WITH DETACHABLE APPLICATIONS AND SOPHISTICATED CUTS, OUR PIECES CAN BE WORN IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

DESIGN-CRAFT

HANDMADE GARMENTS

IN OUR PRODUCTION, THE DESIGN CRAFT IS AN IMPORTANT ASPECT THAT WE WANT TO KEEP ALIVE. THAT'S WHY WE STILL PARTLY WORK BY HAND IN OUR PRODUCTION. FOR EXAMPLE, WITH OUR HAND-LAID FOLDS AND HAND-TORN HEMS.

WOMEN'S POWER

THE FUTURE IS FEMALE!

WOMEN-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS DEVELOPED BY WOMEN FOR WOMEN. WOMEN-POWER IS ALSO IMPORTANT FOR US IN OUR PRODUCTION. OVER 90% OF OUR PRODUCTION EMPLOYEES ARE WOMEN.

VEGAN ALTERNATIVES

SAVING ANIMAL RAW MATERIALS

WE ARE TRYING MORE AND MORE TO SWITCH TO VEGAN ALTERNATIVES. WITH THE FABRIC CUPRO WE HAVE FOUND A VEGAN ALTERNATIVE FOR SILK.

SLOW FASHION

SLOWING DOWN CONSUMPTION

WITH SLOW FASHION, WE WANT TO LIMIT COMSUMPTION. THAT'S WHY WE FOCUS ON FABRICS AND STYLES THAT CAN BE WORN FOR LONGER, BUT STILL REMAIN TRENDY.

LIMITED EDITION

SAVING TEXTILE WASTE

WE PRODUCE IN VERY SMALL QUANTITIES. CONSCIOUS USE OF LIMITED RESOURCES IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US, WHICH IS WHY WE WANT TO KEEP TEXTILE WASTE AS LOW AS POSSIBLE.

PROCUREMENT OF MATERIALS

WE WORK WITH NEW INNOVATIVE MATERIALS THAT HAVE A LOW IMPACT ON THE EARTH AND OUR ENVIRONMENT. TOGETHER WITH OUR PARTNERS AND SUPPLIERS, WE DEVELOP OUR OWN MATERIALS THAT MEET OUR SUSTAINABILITY VALUES.
