This sweater is the result from teaming up with a label from Germany (see story below). The sweater is made from 65% Recycled Cotton and 35% Recycled Polyester. On the chest there is a green embroidery that says 'hand in hand' because this sweater has been produced hand in hand with our friends. On the sleeve it has the eagle as an embroidery. This is an OVERSIZED sweater. On the pictures, Bart is wearing size S / 40.
The past months have been an adventure. Covid-19 put our world on a break that impacted us physically and psychologically. Especially for our Hand in Hand family in Istanbul, in the production facilities, where it is necessary to be on-sight and work literally Hand in Hand, this has been a lot of readjusting and reinventing. Salaries has still been paid out with a significant cash-flow decrease, the workspace has been adjusted to Covid-19 standards and the mental health has been challenged. We decided to meet with each other online; some met for the first time in that call. We looked for ways to use collective resources to keep the energy up, the energy of co-creation and collaboration, that is the core essence of living interdependence. We figured also little actions can make a difference. In this context, we teamed up with a label from Germany, @spechtshardt, and we co-created our Hand in Hand sweater. The fabric was organized by EMMA, the embroideries and designs by Spechtshardt and @noytekstil did the rest of the production in Istanbul. Meet the first HAND in HAND product, co-created with love and a vision of a world that goes back to its core essence and makes co-creation and collaboration the normal.
