SoGoodToWear Cashmere

SoGoodToWear (SGTW) is a new Dutch cashmere brand. Not your average brand, no! SGTW is a sustainable fashion label which owns a goat herd in the higher regions of Nepal The goats provide for the high quality cashmere used by SGTW. The knitted collections are designed in the Netherlands by Mark van Vorstenbos, and are made by cashmere knitters in a fair-trade knitting factory in Nepal. Maybe needless to mention (but we will anyway) SoGoodToWear is a fair-trade brand which uses innovative and ethical ways to breed and herd their goats without causing any environmental damage.

The imported goats get their own scarf, with a portrait illustrated by Machteld Schouten. Above the first one; it’s ‘Cappucino’ the goat. The second goat, ‘Mr Gaga’, also has been portrayed but that’s still a secret…… We, at Mimi Berlin, took care of the styling for the webshop, photography was done by JW Kaldenbach. Ofcourse it’s ‘styling light‘ but we just want to show all the work we do at MB-Modebüro.

Mail from Ulrike: The Poor Man’s Bias Cut & Sew

Mail from Ulrike. To be more precise: snail mail from Ulrike Träge. Since Mimi Berlin has no money/no cent/no dime/nada/noppes, our dear Ulrike showed us the crisis sewing pattern technique for making new clothes during hard times. A couple of years ago she invented a re-cycling technique called; The Poor Man’s Bias Cut & Sew. Only applicable when all your clothes are totally worn out, or if you gained or lost tons of weight! Otherwise the best advice is of course to not cut up your clothes so you can save up energy for other useful things: Like to make money by selling homegrown young plants or your old magazines.

Anyway, for us the time has come. We are going to have to use The Poor Man’s Bias Cut & Sew technique on all of our Dries van Noten clothes. NO, not The van Noten’s! we hear you scream. Yes, we have to, they are made from the most durable quality of fabric we own, we answer, whispering with a trembling voice, to your question. Keep you posted! xoxo Mimi
