Unravelau acknowledges the importance of conserving the environment and
to do so. Yet, today’s fashion system produces significant amounts of waste, and discards a lot of
products for which new uses can be found. That’s why only organic and recycled materials are used.
“One man's trash is another man's treasure”.
For the latest collection of UNRAVELAU we reused jeans. The discarded jeans used in these products have
their own unique wear pattern, and were collected from Dutch citizens. By wearing this product, you have
given them a new life.
Special thanks to the following people who donated their jeans to UNRAVELAU: Kuyichi, Zoé Daemen , Marieke De Vree, Bonhoeffer College, Zoë Groenewegen, Hatice Tekin, Ayşe Önce, Katinka Springstof, Lisa te Giffel, Madhya Andhyaksa , Sanne Schelvis, Silke van Diemen, Dennis Hamersteen, Koen Van Essen, Keesjan Meijering, stichting De ARM Kringloop Centrum Utrecht, Wawollie Kringloop Utrecht, Emmaus, Kraayenest Kringloop, Terre des Hommes winkel Utrecht en Castricum helpt Muttathara
Unravelau produces all their work in a fair way. Every product is made by hand in the atelier in
Utrecht, The Netherlands. The products are made with love and care for fashion and environment and are
expected to be treated the same.
Fashion plays an important role in expressing who we are. Yet, we also see the big impact of the fashion industry on our society and environment. Sustainable fashion ensures that we remain able to express ourselves, but also within the boundaries of what our planet allows. This means that sustainable fashion has to be more than just a hype or philanthropy. The industry has to change, from raw materials to disposal and everything in between. Such a change does not happen overnight, it takes time. At Unravelau we try to make every decision as sustainable as possible, one step at a time but at least one step further than the day before.
