BIRTH OF CLOTH
Alma Vetlényi’s timeless design expresses itself by using both ethical fabrics and production methods. We are vocal about our choice to use sustainable and ethical design principles. All of our collections are designed with zero-waste tailoring.
Alma Vetlényi want to be judged the same way all brands are - by strength of design. Alma's designs are in harmony, which underpins professionalism andconsistent thinking in collections, by using colors and shapes consciously.
To produce a responsibly made product, we choose each material with intention and care. When sourcing for our designs, we prioritise natural, recycled, and organic fibres and do not use any fur, leather, or feathers. Most of our fibres are Oeko-Tex®100 Standard, meaning that raw materials are undergo testing to ensure that no harmful chemicals are used during the manufacturing.
We continuously develop new innovative solutions with our main staple and sewing technology partner, Alma’s mother, to keep the manufacturing process transparent and circular.
