How Green Can You Go: DARKOH At The GreenTec Awards

Posted on May 26, 2017


If you haven’t heard about Green Tec Awards by now, then let’s get this out the way first.  In 2008, two German engineers came together and thought that inventions and initiatives that support the protection of our resources and environment should be rewarded just like any other award show does with artistic achievements.  Every year,  companies, organizations, brands and private persons can apply for it with their good deed and  are then nominated in 15 different categories such as energy,  constructions & living, lifestyle or travel after undergoing a critical analysis by a renowned jury filled with members out of the industry. The highlight of every year is the actual award event where the winner of each category is honored under the spotlight of press, media, and VIPs.

No Business As Usual

Posted on May 15, 2017


After fulfilling the demand of well-fitted suits that are not the ordinary, we are entering a new era of business wear.

Introducing a new line of business suits that is catering individuals with an eco-friendly and open-minded approach to problem solving and strategy planning.

We carefully picked designs and colors that follow office standards but shine with exclusive sustainable fabrics such as wool, cotton, cupro and linen and little design details that compliment a professional look.

Each month a new suits style will be added to the collection in order to provide more interchangeable styling options.

This month, we introduce five different styles that will be available online and on Green Window by the end of May.

We Care

 

Sustainability has become  a topic that concerns us all, now that the effect of global warming through ruthless wasting and producing is becoming very visual. Even though we are not a Vegan brand, our focus is on consciously sourcing our materials and producing under fair conditions without harming workers, animals and our precious environment. 

We here at DARKOH do take pride in working with suppliers that exclusively produce fabrics whilst sustaining environmental integrity. The city of Huddersfield, where most of our wool is spun is known for its traditional mills that still spin and dye cloth naturally and chemical-free. In addition, we not only refrain from using animal skin but we also assure that our wool fibers are provided by sheep herds that are held under eco-friendly conditions. A majority of our products are manufactured in-house with focus on trade skills and healthy workspace conditions; only a few finishing tasks are outsourced to selected manufacturer within the EU. Our clothing is made to survive a long period of time, actually generations, (if good taste is passed on) which is a major factor in the sustainability movement. 

We believe that showing awareness for a healthy environment starts with our own conscious living and eating. Knowing where your clothes is made and under what conditions is just one step to support sustainability and it does not require a Vegan lifestyle unless by choice, of course.

Our collection is also available at Green Windows, a German platform that offers products that were manufactured under the Fair Trade and sustainability aspect.
