At vintageBambi, our mission is to make fashion more sustainable by focusing on reusing existing materials and waste reduction. We are committed to using only second-hand materials for our handmade clothes, which are carefully selected from local second-hand stores and online shops in Germany. By rescuing clothing that would have otherwise been discarded and giving it a new lease on life, we are contributing to a more circular and eco-friendly fashion system.
We believe in sustainability, not only in the clothing we make, but also in our packaging materials. Our business cards and stickers are printed using climate-neutral methods, and our mailers are 100% compostable. In addition, we strive to minimize waste at every step of our production process, and we make sure to reuse and recycle even the smallest fabric scraps.
At the heart of our mission is the belief that each and every one of us has the power to make a difference in the fashion industry and help the environment. By choosing to shop with us and other sustainable small businesses, you are taking a stand against the fast fashion industry, which is one of the biggest polluters in the world. Did you know that the clothing and textile industry produces nearly 20% of global wastewater and uses up to 8,000 liters of water to produce just one pair of jeans? These statistics are alarming, but by supporting sustainable fashion brands like vintageBambi, you can make a positive impact and help reduce the industry's negative environmental impact.
In Germany alone, the textile industry produces 391,752 tonnes of waste every year, much of which ends up in landfills or is shipped overseas, where it can harm small businesses and local economies. By shopping with vintageBambi, you can help prevent textile waste and support a more sustainable, circular fashion system.
Our dream is to provide you with stylish, one-of-a-kind clothes that you can feel good about wearing. Whether you're here for the beautiful clothes, the sustainable aspects, or both, we are grateful for your support. Together, we can make a difference and create a more sustainable future for fashion. Thank you for being a part of our journey.
