Fancy a holiday to Indonesia, but don't want to stab the environment in the back with a flight? Hello Guave comes with the solution. The clothing brand brings Indonesia to you with summery prints to die for.
Two Dutch friends founded the brand in 2017 after they found out that they are both of Indian origin. In a search for their identity, Hello Guave emerged: a sustainable clothing line for women, girls and boys. Because they want to bring the Indonesian culture to the Netherlands, they are working with the fabric batik to make their clothes. The brand also lives by three core values: transparency, wearability and sustainability.
Batik is an Indian fabric that consists of cotton or silk and is dyed with ink made from leaves, wood, bark and herbs. There is no overproduction, as the brand works with limited editions. In addition to that, they also work by the principle of Zero Waste. That means that nothing is thrown in the bin. Every year, the brand searches for new ways to work even more sustainably.
For their fabrics, Hello Guave cooperates with local batik makers in Indonesia. With this, they also support the preservation of this Indonesian craft. These people can keep their work and are rewarded with a fair wage. Where the factory for the production of clothing is located is still unknown for us here at COSH.
Pay tribute to Indonesian culture with Hello Guave and support the local batik makers.
