IOANNA KOURBELA OM 

EGET ENGASJEMENT FOR BÆREKRAFT

Fashion provides the opportunity for everyone to express themselves with beauty while yielding quality to their daily life. By its own definition, fashion ought to be protective towards both the environment and the people.

We participate in the movement "Sustainability in Fashion" insisting on the need for resource sustainability, fair treatment of workers at every stage of production and consumer protection around the world.

Sustainable Development has been the main pillar in our business philosophy since day One. Today we take an active part in spreading the idea of sustainability in fashion in order to protect the environment, support our fellow human beings, keep alive the small workshops and preserve their tradition and craftsmanship.

We keenly participate in the Textiles Clothing Business Labs (T.C.B.L.), a pan-European project aimed to the remediation and renovation of the textile and clothing industry. TCBL's goal is a percent of the total clothing production to return in Europe and be produced under certified procedures according to the principles of Sustainable Development.

In June 2017, as part of a T.C.B.L.'s pilot project, a special collection of Ioanna Kourbela "Basics" was presented in Athens. The collection was compliant with all the new EU standards and regulations for Sustainable Development. Our company was the first one to launch such a venture, with the aspiration to pave the way for a modern, humanistic, entrepreneurial and fashionable thinking in Europe.
