We are back in 2020!
After 3,5 years it is time to stop with Underneath, but not for good! I made this decision, because I don’t approve my own way of working anymore. For example, I don’t know where my fabrics come from and how they’re being made, the same counts for all the other products I use. When I started Underneath, I wasn’t thinking about these things. I didn’t have an idea about the origin of my fabrics and the impact of how these fabrics were made.
But in the last year, I changed a lot on a personal level. I moved from the Netherlands to Belgium, I became vegetarian and now I’m transitioning in becoming vegan. I also try to buy less products in (plastic) packaging and for my own clothing I don’t go to fast fashion stores anymore but to thrift stores and vintage shops.
Because of all these changes in my personal life, I decided I wanted to change Underneath too. I want Underneath to be ethical, environmental friendly and sustainable. But that’s not something I can change overnight. That’s why I’m taking a break. But don’t worry, behind the scenes I am going to search for new ethical fabric suppliers, make new designs and patterns, study natural dyeing and many more!
I hope you all understand my decision and see you all in time when I relaunch Underneath.
For now, thank you all so much who has followed and supported me and bought lingerie from my small business!
