Which is why it comes to no surprise that House of Dagmar will participate in Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2016 on may 12th. The prestigious design challenge aims to promote sustainable wardrobes using two outfits from the participating brands own back catalogues.

Items chosen from House of Dagmar include a parka from their SS16 collection made from recycled polyester fiber manufactured from used PET bottles that are free of petrochemicals. The material is 100% recyclable, and contains no toxic chemicals while being long lasting, mothproof and waterproof.

In addition to this House of Dagmar are also presenting The Lou Tote Bag produced by Swedish based Tärnsjö Tannery through a vegetable tanning process, using local hide materials to make the hand-made ecological leather.

Also presenting their Sara fur jacket, displaying how House of Dagmar use fur garments without killing animals. The fur is produced using a special shaving technique, which allows the mohair to be weaved into the fabric base. The garment is made from ecological wool that has been produced, without chemicals or other artificial treatments. Showcasing a variety of fashion essentials that are ethically conscious and luxurious.
