Our northern roots has made us appreciate nature since we were born. The beauty of nature surrounded us when we played outside, walked to the school and ran to swim to freshwater lakes during the first steps of our lives. We came from nature and nature is part of us in our everyday lives. For us, taking care of ourselves involves taking care of our environment. Our selection reflects our lifestyle and makes us fully committed to sustainability.
 

Garmendo-sustainability

  

The fashion industry is the third most polluting industry in the world and the second largest consumer of water. The manufacturing process uses water, energy, chemicals and is way too often exploiting other natural resources, human and animals, that most people don’t even think about.

We believe in positive change. The fashion industry is facing huge changes supported by technology and innovations. Many companies are making small steps towards sustainability, and we want to offer these better options for our customers. At Garmendo we want to introduce new sustainable brands, but also provide the trailblazers of sustainability; brands, who have been working many years for sustainability.
