10 years slowmo byebyeSaturday, September 3, 2016
Dear slowmo friends.
For now we have to say good bye.
10 years of slowmo are coming to an end.
10 years in the textile industry, whose far-reaching impact on humanity and the environment is often still being underestimated, even though the textile industry is one of the oldest and according to numbers of employees and profits one of the biggest industries of the producing economy.
To be able to assess the social, economical and ecological relevance of textiles, we have to consider the entire production chain from fiber to disposal.
This is what we have always done at slowmo. We coordinated every step of the production chain ourselves and tested each step on its sustainability. Passionately we worked on creating structures enabling us to produce fundamentally sustainable and fair trade clothing.
We have come to the conclusion that this industry is growing slower than we had hoped and that it still has a long way to go. We were unable to find an investor who was ready to take slowmo to the next stage.
Therefore we have to change course. We will continue to be involved in social justice, environmental protection and conservation and we will never stop looking for alternatives.
But before we close we couldn’t help but produce a couple more pieces in a limited edition: the knitted cardigans JARI and MIMO. They will be the final pieces in 10 years of slowmo collections and are now available in the online shop. www.slowmo-shop.eu
A few other remaining products will also come out of storage for this one last sale.
We produced all our pieces for you, our customers and you deserve a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope you enjoyed many wonderful moments in your slowmo clothing and that many of them live on for years to come!
If you would like to send us a little „good bye“, we would be excited to receive a picture of you in your favorite slowmo pieces!
Thank you for your continues support and trust in us!
We say good bye with the slogan we started with:
Look lovely... smile beautifully... stay open minded... and keep it slowmo.
With our best wishes,
Felicia and Melchior Moss
