Our brand delivers clothes to wear and love forever!

 

Jungle Folk emerged from the idea to offer high quality, timeless and sustainable clothing for women. We create classic pieces that are wearable and combinable in various ways for every occasion.

The brand was born during a trip through Latin America, inspired by beautiful landscapes and the people's knowledge of ancient techniques.

The designer Pauline Treis started to develop the brand with a community of urban and rural artisans in 2013. Working with Jungle Folk enables artisans to be sustainable, increases their incomes and improves their skills.

Jungle Folk only uses sustainable and certified materials such as organic cotton, linen, silk and wool for the clothing and recycled and natural materials for accessories.

Jungle Folk is a clothing line that doesn’t go with the trend of launching multiple seasonal collections every year. We see sustainability in the longevity and quality of a design and present a carefully designed line of wardrobe classics. We don't work along the "normal" fashion calendar and with the trends that change every season.

Pauline Marie Treis is the creative head behind the brand.
Born in Munich, Germany she mostly grew up in Switzerland. Travels before and during her studies in International Relation in Geneva brought her closer to issues of sustainable development, conscious global trading and the beauty of diversity found in traditional craft work in different parts of our world.

After her studies she decided to follow her dream to merge her passion for craft, creativity and arts with a sustainable and social project. She is now mostly based in Zurich, Switzerland and still travels multiple times a year – for inspiration and to Colombia and Peru to develop and produce new ideas and designs.

Our Materials

 

We choose our materials with intention and care.
The Jungle Folk clothes are made from organic and renewable fibers, chosen with a focus on quality and longevity. We are fascinated by the handwoven and the natural and we celebrate the beautiful simplicity of materials.

 
 
All our cotton is certified organic by GOTS. Organic cotton is the base of our collections. We work with light woven qualitites with a beautiful drape made in Portugal and knitted organic cotton fabric from Peru. The peruvian organic cotton is from a Pima quality, one of the finest cottons you'll find.
 
Our organic cotton suppliers are also fairtrade certified. They work with over 500 farmer families in three different regions of the country for the harvest of the material.

Flax is a natural raw material, making linen one of the most sustainable textiles known to man. It is a very strong fibre and therefor long-lasting and we love it for its soft and cooling effect on the skin.
 
We work with wonderful organic linen projects from the Seine-et-Marne region in France. All our organic linen fabrics carry the GOTS label, a worldwide recognized standard for organic fibers and processes. After harvesting the linen is spun through mechanical processes. It is then woven in a traditional linen weaving factory in Belgium. Find out more about the process by watching this video from our Linen supplier.

Alpacas are these marvelous animals living in the plains of the Andes in Peru and Bolivia from 3000 to 4200km height. We work with traditional alpaca productions which means it’s not mass-produced but rather small farmers holding few alpaca’s and shearing them by hand, letting them gaze on wide open spaces. The indigenous communities have been living with Alpaca in these steppes since the earliest times.
