HERE'S TO SAYING 'NO' ALL OVER

‘NO’ is often seen as negative, we embrace it as a powerful tool for transformation. With this design we illustrate the different times that we say NO. The handwritten ‘all over’ words are individually drawn and symbolize taking no shortcuts.
This print is all about maximum effect of design choices, celebrating local partnerships and minimum environmental impact.

YES STATIEGELD

Je houdt van mode, maar wil niet bijdragen aan de groeiende textiel-afvalberg? Vanaf nu gaan wij samen de modecirkel sluitend maken. Met jouw aankoop zorg je dat je sweater 100% circulair wordt. Samen creëren we een wereld zonder kledingafval.

NO CIRCULARITY WITHOUT YOU

YES statiegeld, NO textile waste

New Optimist takes the revolutionary step towards 'statiegeld' on clothing. You are in control to ensure that your favourite sweater eventually becomes part of the fashion circle of life again.

WE’RE AT THE FOREFRONT OF A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

All our garments are made following the circular design principles of the Ellen MacArthur foundation. This means that:

1. We don’t create waste or pollution
2. We make durable garments
3. We use recycled materials and guarantee garment recyclability
