WHY ASSEMBLE?

ECOLOGICAL, ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE

Second to oil, fashion and textiles is the most polluting industry in the world. Every stage in a garment’s life threatens our planet and its resources.

The problem is not just sustainability — the problem is the ever-increasing demand for fast fashion. Fast fashion will never be sustainable as its business model is based on producing huge volumes, incredibly quickly, very cheaply so that we can buy more clothes. Fast fashion equals disposable fashion and unvalued lives of the hidden people who work at the bottom of the supply chain.

BEHIND THE SEAMS

We at Kalopsia wanted to re-invent this business model, including innovating for more sustainable and more efficient ways of using materials and extending the lifespan of garments and textiles products through better design, manufacturing and re-use. As a society, we all have to learn that buying too cheaply is unrealistic and a wish that cannot be achieved without someones exploitation as wages are still obscenely low, hours obscenely high, and overall transparency unbearably blurry.

We at Kalopsia are always questioning our industry with the goal to increase awareness and knowledge of ecological, ethical and sustainable textiles and apparel production.

WHY WE NEED TO VALUE OUR CLOTHES AND TEXTILES GOODS

Assemble works as building blocks for textiles printers, retailers and creatives. We have curated the collection with simplicity, craftsmanship, and sustainability in mind, balancing minimal, classic designs with contemporary, clean aesthetics. This allows each fabric to put its stamp on the product.

The Assemble Apparel and and Accessory collection contains of classic base items that can be ordered in (almost) any fabric. This collection offers additional options such as sizes and finishings.
 

WE BELIEVE IN POCKET EQUALITY!

Pockets are something we feel very passionately about. As anyone that has bought women's clothes will know pockets are a critical issue and are often inadequate (if they are there at all). The Assemble Apparel range has been designed to accommodate pockets. These are not just features which barely have enough room for spare change, but fully functional pockets capable of holding phones and keys.  - Pockets are a feminist issue
