Back To Roots Collection - Men

'BACK TO ROOTS' fashion & art collection encourages you to think about the importance of protecting trees on Earth. The message that humanity is doomed as the primary forests that purify the air disappear is artfully but very directly woven in the collection. We take for granted the most precious components of our biosphere, which are fundamental to life. Taking care of trees is taking care of our children, our children’s future and ourselves. A tree converts our foul air, our carbon dioxide (CO2), into oxygen for ‘carbohydrates’, sugar-like substances, which are the basic building blocks of the wood of the tree itself and us to breathe. The chemical equation goes something like this:

Every single couture garment in the collection is unique and one-of-a-kind, designed and created using both traditional tailoring and sustainable techniques like upcycling. The collection also features ready-to-wear ART Print T-shirts presenting screen printed photographic art by graphic artist and fashion designer Ingeborg Steenhorst. The shirts are made of 100% eco-friendly organic cotton and 100% natural Lyocell TENCEL® fibers.
