I’m Upcycled Fabric
Did you know the tag is completely natural and biodegradable? Made with FSC certified paper, cotton twine and a compostable lock mechanism made out of corn starch!
At Baukjen we take every care to create great quality designs and love sharing what’s behind each piece with our customers. We take the planet and people seriously. We are not perfect and are on a journey to do better every day. Giving you transparency is important, so you know where we are now and where we are going.

Made in Europe
Products with this certification are solely Made in Europe. The total distance travelled as a garment is greatly reduced compared to production in countries further away. This minimises the carbon footprint to minimise our impact on the planet
Upcycling means making new garments by incorporating left-over fabric waste. It extends the life of the materials to reduce waste
Garments that are ethically made have come from factories that have signed our code of conduct ensuring the highest ethical standards are met. These include living wages, safe conditions, regulated working hours and strictly no child labour.
Every season we source overstocked fabrics and turn them into special pieces. These are usually materials left over from past productions that we find in warehouses being unused. In a way, upcycling fabric is the material sourcing equivalent to buying second-hand but with the tags on. Great, right? As a result, your items have very little environmental impact and a real feel-good factor!
