The my-GREENstyle.com Eco-Darling of Umasan
Some garments are for eternity. For eternity, because they are cut classic and will never go out of fashion. Because their color combination, therefore is unexcited and yet they are portable in many years, because they are made of high quality materials, which are extremely well made and durable. To as much a part is in the clean, dark blue shirt-blouse of the Berlin label Umasan of sisters Sandra and Anja Umann. Their Asian-inspired, avantgarde-inspired cuts (Anja Umann was worked e.g. for Yohji Yamamoto), grant every garment immediately a personal touch, without being intrusive or submitted to any trends. The flattering silhouette, the soft flowing material and the contrasting placket with small white collar, ensure a slightly masculine-inspired garment for a sufficiently feminine twist. More details: the small set-scarf and the lateral slots. A Everday-favorite with statement character. Made from 94 percent Tencel, 6 percent elastane. Of course, made in Germany.

The GREEN aspect Umasan
Sandra and Anja Umann forego at their vegan label Umasan aware of the use of animal products such as wool, silk and leather. Instead, it focuses on innovative fibers such as Tencel*, bamboo and soy silk, which are not only won environmentally friendly, but at the same time protect the skin, nourish and feel extremely well. From the initial design to the prototype, the Umasan collections are developed in Berlin, until they are finally produced in collaboration with traditional manufacturing companies that share the Umasan values. The combination of sustainability and social responsibility is for Umasan not only the base of their activity. For them the combination of these two components results a pioneering synergy.
* Tencel is a fiber botanical origin, which is obtained from wood. Thanks to a closed loop manufacturing this fiber is special environmentally friendly. It is more absorbent than cotton, soft as silk and cool as linen.
