PHILOSOPHY

By Signe is honest and sustainable fashion without compromise. By offering clean and perfected minimalist casualwear, garments are made to last in any basic wardrobe for several seasons. They believe in a sustainable fashion industry as the future, and strive to remain sustainable through all processes. Their entire design process is gathered under one roof as they wish to keep the handcraft and quality safe within their own production. This ensures full control of all parameters and quality of the entire process. Their in-house production in Denmark ensures absolute ethical security in a non-discriminating, healthy, safe and positive environment.

COLLECTION

All By Signe's collections are divided into two lines, lounge wear and contemporary fashion, and they usually have a color palette of natural earthy colors mixed with one or two brighter accent colors of the season.

The AW18 collection is inspired by designer Signe Rødbro’s personal experiences and digital words of tragic modern love stories. With the moon as a focal point the collection is looking for natural beauty in darker mental places.

fabrics

When selecting materials By Signe strive for all fabrics to be organic and certified by The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) which is recognized as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. GOTS defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.

Whenever possible, By Signe keep their fabrics unbleached and only in natural colours. If a textile is whitened, this is achieved with oxybleach, which is a low impact safe method of whitening based on oxygen that leaves no residue. When the finished fabric is GOTS certified, it ensures that there has not been utilized any heavy metal dyes, finishing chemicals or other toxic chemicals & they are all free from pesticides.
