At the beginning there is an idea.
The path of our dress starts with our designer Nina. She collects ideas, creates mood boards and designs and shapes every SWING product with her creative signature.
Decision in private.
Collection Manager Kristina then decides together with Nina which design will actually be implemented. The dress has made it into the selection!
Your dress is starting to take shape.
The next step belongs in calm, experienced hands. In our in-house atelier in Schermbeck on the Lower Rhine, Monika will make the cut of the dress.
The threads come together on site.
Now Sandra, one of our ten seamstresses, takes over. With care and attention to detail, the new pattern dress is created. In constant coordination with our creative team.
Sustainable raw materials
Old becomes new.
For the production already existing plastics are used, which can be any plastic waste, from old PET bottles, plastic from landfills to ocean plastic.
After cleaning, the plastic is shredded into small pieces. The small plastic chips are melted down in the next step.
Pellets become yarn.
The molten mass is then spun into fibers. The finished fibers are further processed into yarn. This yarn can be used to make new fabrics from which we can sew our clothes.
The process is simple and requires significantly less effort than the production of conventional polyester. In addition, no new crude oil is needed, which is a great advantage for the environment.
doubly environmentally friendly.
Fewer raw materials are used for our fabrics and at the same time the environment is freed from harmful plastic. A small contribution to make SWING even greener.
