EKATERINA ZDANOWICZ MUSINA
DESIGNER & FOUNDER
That's why we headed to the Netherlands to have our fabrics printed. Championing gender equality and female empowerment in our collections, we are also making sure that labour is not being exploited unfairly at any stage of our production process. Focusing on the concept rather than the trend, we eschew the fashion seasons, which allows our customers a greater freedom of choice. Our made-to-measure approach does not only cater to the customer's individual needs but also allows to avoid overproduction. Working with our clients individually, we are always happy to meet their personal needs be it a custom-made change or repair the item in order to make it last longer.
Sustainable attitude and sustainable production are at the core of Fuenf Berlin's DNA. The brand presents a welcome alternative to fast fashion with its deliberate attention to the methods of fashion production, fabrics and fairness of labour. The clothes are produced in Berlin and at small ateliers in Poland with transparency and traceability being the key aspects. Realising the importance of eco-friendly and ethical production at Fuenf we are trying to outsource sustainable fabrics by European producers and suppliers: we make sure we include recycled and eco-certified fabrics. While prints are important for Fuenf's aesthetic, it is digital printing that we employ: more sustainable than screen-printing, for example, it allows to avoid the unnecessary waste of water.
