WHY COLOR IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME

Color is everywhere around us and it makes us happy and energized, confident or relaxed. I started Color Vision because I want more women to be able to wear high quality garments in all of the colors of the color circle.



WHY I CHOOSE HIGH QUALITY FABRICS

Since the founder (me, Iben) was little my mother, which is a textile artist – taught me about fabrics and their properties. I brought this knowledge with me and used it when I  started sewing vintage patterns. Then I increased my knowledge of fabrics through textile courses, dyeing workshops and weaving.

I've been wearing vintage clothing for years, and one of my main issues is that all my favorite styles come in polyester. I wanted to exchange the poly with natural fabrics like wool, cotton, linen and silk – preferably in as high percentage as possible.

THOUGHTS ON SUSTAINABILITY

High quality fabric and quality construction makes garments last. This has been key during development and design. We contribute as much as we can to not harm the environment, by using quality construction techniques and high quality materials. Most of our production is made to order, which lets us avoid producing clothes in abundance. Our clothes are ment to last and be repaired again and again. We also buy fabrics mostly from Italy and europe, so our sourcing is as local as possible.

At Color Vision we think conscious consumption is one of the ways to go to save our environment, and buying clothes which are of high enough quality to be mended for years and years. 

MY MANUFACTURER

I decided to manufacture my garments in Poland and Italy. The reason why is; it’s far more sustainable when it comes to distance. I'm also able to visit my manufacturer more often, and spend time with the lovely talented dressmakers who work there. Pictured is the lovely Ksenia in Lodz, which sewed most of the Mia mikado dress.
