Intersport’s Outdoorshoes McKinley

Laut neuem CSR Report ist eine Säule der Nachhaltigkeit:

“Ein Baustein dafür seien beispielsweise die Eigenmarken. So erfolge die Produktion von Outdoorschuhen der Eigenmarke McKinley bereits hauptsächlich in Europa und ist mit dem ‚Made in Europa‘ Label gekennzeichnet. „Unsere Produktionsstätten in Italien und Rumänien gelten als Vorzeigebetriebe hinsichtlich transparenter Prozesse und sozialer Verantwortung. Die dortige Produktion schafft Arbeitsplätze und sorgt für kürzere Lieferwege mit vergleichsweise geringem Emissionsausstoß“, erklärt dazu der CSR-Beauftragte Georgios Chatzopoulos. “

One component of this (note: sustainability) is, for example, the private labels. The production of McKinley’s own brand outdoor shoes is already mainly in Europe and is marked with the ‘Made in Europe’ label. “Our production facilities in Italy and Romania are considered to be exemplary in terms of transparent processes and social responsibility. The production there creates jobs and ensures shorter delivery routes with comparatively low emissions,” explains CSR officer Georgios Chatzopoulos.

Rich & Royal

I discovered this brand by chance. I had actually come to see the Armed Angels clothing, and I came across Rich&Royal. A nice find, actually. Everything I saw was made in Europe. Go for it!

Rich & Royal; you a have my green light!


I bought a Desigual dress a few years ago during a trip to Madrid. Turns out it was made in China. I haven’t been back to Desigual since. I had read an article recently saying that the brand was buying some of its collections in Europe. So I went back to check this out. And it turns out that some of the articles are indeed made in Morocco or Portugal. All in all I can say that you can shop there, but be careful, check the labels and select only items made in Europe! 

I’m not sure if this is indeed the case, but I have the impression (as at Benetton), that the polyesther articles come from China, those in cotton come from Europe or surroundings.

Desigual gets an “Orange Star”

Armed Angels

I read an article on fair fashion, and the German brand Armed Angels was cited as an example. One produces at reasonable costs, paying its suppliers well, use only organic fabrics … and they are from Europe (or close). So I checked and I can only recommend the brand. The prices are affordable. Very fashionable models but not fashion-victim, so a fashion that is worn for more than a season. The quality is impeccable. You will love and wear this clothes for years to come! Go for it!

Armed Angels, a fantastic brand! Eco-and fair fashion! Here the link to the online shop.
