Being a sustainable brand means working with new and evolving materials, challenging traditional ideas but also investing in quality.
At SØSTER STUDIO, we believe in the concept of circular economy and closed-loop processes. We dedicate our innovative spirit to find the best possible materials for our collections.
We believe that the origin of our products, as well as the stories behind them, should be just as beautiful as the garment itself. For us it is important to reveal where things come from.
Sustainability is the biggest challenge the world is now facing. Vogue Talents tenth anniversary presents “The new frontiers of awareness”, a special issue to highlight some of the designers and enterprises that are trying to change the current system, brands that create their collections with a “slow” approach and a focus on projects, schools and companies that are committed to find a new path for a better future. Thank you Sara Maino, Vogue Talents and Vogue Italia for including our work and interviewing us for this issue. Discover the feature inside Vogue Italia on newsstand today.

APPLE LEATHER JACKET
Bibi wearing apple Leather Jacket made from a durable and compostable leather alternative, made using a substance called pectin. This is found in the skin of an apple and is regarded as an industrial waste product. The apple leather is dyed and tanned naturally, without the use of chemical-intensive practices common within the industry. Video taken behind the scenes on our lookbook shoot in London.
Å JOURNAL EXHIBITION
Really happy that our latest collection is a part of the important exhibition 'No Oceans, No Life' curated by Å Journal. See it at Ofr Copenhagen for the next two week. Images by Andree Martis, styling by Kama Krystel. All of the images are for sale and half of the profits will go to Blue Marine Foundation working on marine conservation programs.
Every minute, every single day, the equivalent of a truckload of plastic enters our oceans. Experts think that by 2050, the amount of plastic in the ocean will weigh more than the amount of fish in the ocean. ”Water and air, the two fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans,” stated Jacques Cousteau once, a French explorer and scientist who studied the sea and all forms of life in the water. Primary sources are the waste plastics from the manufacturing industry – known as 'nurdles' or 'mermaid's tears' – these small beads are transported in large volumes into the marine ecosystem. And not to forget plastic litter in all its forms and shapes such as bottles, food packaging, polyester clothing, fishing line – which is brought to the beach by wave action, river deposits, sewage outlets and storm drains, as well as being directly deposited by beach users. The impact of this synthetic tide is pervasive. Increasing evidence shows how quickly our oceans are becoming swamped. From clogging the deepest depths before we have even explored them, to starving the birds that soar above the ocean surface, this is a problem that affects all marine life. Words by Magnus Hoest for Å Journal.

Season 1 lookbook and interview up on Tomorrow Magazine
Treating the environment, animals and human beings with respect shouldn't be something niche or special, it should be the standard practice. Unfortunately it’s not, and the fashion industry caters to people wanting more things, faster and cheaper. By doing this, these brands are sacrificing the safety and lives of people (mostly female workers) as well as the environment. The fashion industry holds a lot of power as it’s the second most polluting industry in the world; by producing less and more thoughtful we could create a lot of positive change..
