con.hilo

Heute möchte ich euch ein Projekt vorstellen, welches mir sehr am Herzen liegt: das faire Modelabel con.hilo. Gegründet von Kathrin  (die ich seit rund 12 Jahren kenne!) und Tatjana verbindet con.hilo schöne Mode mit fairer Herstellung und der Schaffung von Ausbildungsmöglichkeiten für junge Frauen aus benachteiligten Schichten in Guatemala.




Today I want to show you a project that is very dear to my heart: the fair clothing brand con.hilo. Founded by Kathrin (with whom I've been friends with for 12 years now!) and Tatjana, con.hilo connects pretty clothes with fair production and the creation of education possibilities for young women from less privileged backgrounds in Guatemala.



Die Klamotten haben klassische, klare Schnitte - der Bezug zu Guatemala kommt vor allem durch Details aus der traditionellen Mayakunst. Vor einem Weilchen habe ich einen Nachmittag in deren Werkstatt verbracht um beim Entstehungsprozess zuzuschauen - ein paar (oder auch ein paar mehr) Impressionen will ich euch nicht vorenthalten.



The clothes have classic and clean cuts - the reference to Guatemala mainly comes through details from the traditional Maya art. A little while ago I spent an afternoon in their workshop to watch the creation of their pieces - I don't want to withholg some (or some more) impressions!






Pause muss auch sein! // Breaks are needed!



Con.hilo wird per dawanda-Shop und auf dem Markt am Maybachufer in Berlin-Neukölln verkauft. So sieht's dann aus! Schaut's euch doch mal an!

You can buy con.hilo items in their dawanda shop (they also ship internationally!) and at the market on the Maybachufer in Berlin. This is how their stall looks!
