Blue Ben - The first water-saving & compostable sweater grown & made IN Europe FOR Bangladesh!

Water is more important than clothing! That's why we're working on a compostable sweater that uses 90% less water than a conventional cotton sweater. We completely abstain from artificial irrigation, cotton, plastics, long transport routes and wage dumping. From the raw material to the finished sweater we stay in Europe. Our vision? A wardrobe with essentials that save and give water. That's why we pay reparations to countries that have suffered from the textile industry.
