Fair Fashion

Review & Outlook

Jungle Folk Fair Fashion Collection

Calling 2016 an eventful year is probably an understatement. On the global level it has been a very sad and unsettling year. It it more important today than ever to live a conscious life and to engage for a more equal world.

We are convinced that small movements like Jungle Folk - grass roots initatives which are engaged and consistent - can inspire others to stand up for their beliefs and make a difference. We encourage you to question, to discuss and to define how each and everyone of you can get involved and what impact your actions will have. We believe in global responsibility to act upon inequalities and to stand up for a fairer and sustainable world.

For Jungle Folk 2016 was a year full of positive changes. Besides nurturing our partnership with an artisanal community in Banja Luka, Bosnia, we also started working with a fair trade cooperatives in Lima, Peru. We have extended our reach by presenting Jungle Folk at the Berlin Fashion Week for the first time and working with new boutiques all over Switzerland. We launched two beautiful collections of timeless essentials and we ran a PopUp with our friends from ParkBags for six months.

We are looking forward to even more exciting news in 2017. In two weeks we will be in Berlin again, presenting the next collection at the trade fair Greenshowroom, in spring we will launch our dreamy Cabo collection and we have a series of private shopping events awaiting you. In April we will be organizing the Fashion Revolution Movement in Switzerland and are planning a mayor event with panel discussions, films and workshops. For all of our followers in the Netherlands and Germany, soon you will find Jungle Folk in Amsterdam and Augsburg!

We're starting the year 2017 full of confidence, love and motivation and wish all of you the same. Thank you for supporting us on our journey!

JUNGLE FOLK AT WORK - part 3

get an insight into Oscar Torro's hand loom workshop in Medellin. He and his wife work the hand loom since ever and met each other in a big hand loom workshop. They perfected their skills extremely so they could buy their own looms..sadly this art is being substituted more and more by industrial machines so there is a lack of work. We were happy to develop beautiful pillowcases and blankets with them! muchas gracias ♡

Join us next monday for a interesting evening together with the Erklärung von Bern, a swiss NGO which leads the Clean Clothes Campaign.

JUNGLE FOLK AT WORK - PART 2

Gustavo Velez is an important part of Jungle Folk. Gustavo aka Terry has been living on top of the hill next to Medellin with his big family and his dog for many years.Terry is a very skilled artisan. He works with different materials and knows his art incredibly well. Among other things, he is responsible for our buttons made out of seeds, horn and coco. He has to find horn which has an even structure and matches the colors of the fabrics. Every button is unique.
