    Focus and Philosophy

    Our main focus lies on solid waste management. Both in regards to using waste materials as well as on creating as little waste ourselves as possible when producing. We spend a lot of time on sourcing and processing local, Danish materials and constructing zero waste patterns for our garments.

    We believe that ethics are just as important as aesthetics and therefore the SANDERMANN design philosophy builds on the principle of a unique and fashionable statement for the daring and playful individual. A design from SANDERMANN is both practical and personal. A complete focus on detail, quality and craftsmanship are truly paramount.

    Why We Love Working With Wool

    The SANDERMANN journey began when we discovered that many Danish sheep breeders often burn the wool when they shear the sheep once or twice a year. Our initial mission was to collect this type of wool, have our own yarns spun, and prove that it could actually be used for clothing - something that has now been proven successful. Since the journey began we have travelled further into the world of Danish wool - a universe we have not yet discovered the limits of. Recently we started developing a technique for making cruelty-free sheep fur with a collaborator. We find great pleasure in working with wool; it is in itself a very sustainable material. Wool resists wrinkles so that it doesn't have to be ironed, it has self-cleaning properties, which means you don't have to wash it, it's a naturally renewable fiber and it's 100% biodegradable. What's not to like?

    Deadstock Materials

    When we are not working with wool, we source other types of waste materials such as deadstock textiles from the Danish textile industry. A lot of the fabrics we use have been lying on stock for years - some of them all the way back to the 70's. Some of these fabric rolls only contain a few meters, some contain a lot more. This is the reason why some styles in the shop will vary from the collection images. This also means that some of our styles will only be produced in very limited quantities, which makes them very exclusive garments.

    About Stine Sandermann

    SANDERMANN is the label of Danish designer Stine Sandermann, a graduate of the MA Sustainable Textile Design course at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, in London. During her BA and MA studies, she gained greater insight into the fashion industry – the world’s second most polluting industry next to the oil industry. It was then she chose to change her approach to designing and never go back to doing conventional fashion.
