What is this project all about?

We envision a future for the fashion industry with respect for humans and our environment.
We create timeless, long-lasting fashion - regardless of seasons and trends.
We work for mindful consumption, transparency, quality and fair payment for everyone in the supply chain.

Based on this vision, we have developed the interchangeable 3IN1 COATS with a lifetime guarantee. 3in1 means that 1 piece of clothing can be worn in 3 different ways - as a vest, as a jacket and when put together as a coat. You are even able to customize your coat, your vest and your jacket with exchangeable ADD ONS.
The 3IN1 COAT is made in Germany under fair conditions from sustainable materials acts as a real quick-change artist that helps you to create a timeless and diverse wardrobe.

In order to achieve our vision and launch our collection of interchangeable coats, we need your support. We are convinced that with your help we can make a contribution to permanently changing the fashion world and to create awareness of the detrimental effects the consumption and fast fashion pace on the world.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Our goal is to realize our vision beginning with the production of our sustainable, transformable, fair in Germany produced coat collection for the online and offline markets.

We would also use this crowdfunding campaign to present our 3IN1 COAT collection at trade fairs and within online platforms in order to raise awareness of the need for change in the textile industry.

Our target group is made up of fashion enthusiasts who are committed to slow & fair fashion. People who appreciate a coat that can be utilized in many ways and who place value on quality and style.
People who, like us, are calling for change in the textile industry. And for all those who love our coat and its design.

Why would you support this project?

We stand for fair conditions in the fashion industry and realize this desire for slow fashion by ensuring that the entire supply chain of the materials we use is fairly produced and that the 3IN1 COATS are made in Germany.
It is not enough for us to only act fairly and sustainably at akjumii.
That is why we donate 1.3% of the sales price (at least 10.10 €) to FEMNET e.V. - a registered association that fights for the rights of women in the global textile industry - without increasing the retail price of our coats.

Our coats are made from environmentally friendly materials and come with a lifetime guarantee - we manufacture and sell quality! Long-lasting clothing that is not thrown away, but repaired. Clothing that stays within the cycle and does not harm the environment!

Together with your help we can move away from a consumer and throwaway society towards a sustainable, socially acceptable consumer lifestyle.
Support us. Make a statement for fair fashion and become a proud owner of the first akjumii 3IN1 COAT!

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

After successful financing of the 1st funding target, we will produce your pre-orders, order the neccessary materials from our trading partners and pay the tailors of our production who will sew your coats.
We will then additionally have a budget for further marketing (e.g. social media advertising) and can therefore share with increasingly more people about the akjumii 3IN1 COATS and contribute an increasingly large part to fair working conditions in the textile industry.

When the second funding goal is reached, we will produce every item in our collection in all colors and sizes S, M, L for our studio - at the moment we only have prototypes - and thus allow you to try on all different combinations and sizes in our showroom.
With this sample collection we will run Events (e.g. trade fairs & retail events) and start the 2nd pre-order round.

If the second funding target is exceeded, we will put the collection in stock so that we can start selling directly online (e.g. on fair fashion platforms and in our online shop) as well as at offline events.

Who are the people behind the project?

We, Anna & Michaela, are the fashion label akjumii behind this project.
We met each other in 2007 while studying fashion design and later worked together in the textile industry in India. Since then we have developed and implemented a variety of projects together.
We are bound by a deep friendship, as well as a passion to make the world an even better place. We want to do this together with your help.
We love and produce products that combine fairness, environmental protection, and high design and fashion standards.
