Filippa KFounded in 1993 by Filippa Knutsson, Filippa K pioneered the now-iconic look of Scandinavian minimalism. She saw a need for simple, well-made garments that answer to the real experiences of daily life while balancing style and comfort in equal measure.
Filippa K's sustainability mission is to drive a movement of mindful consumption. By creating pieces with long-lasting style and quality, we can reduce our impact on the planet. In 2014, Filippa K established a circular business model which has evolved into the three sustainability pillars that serve as their foundation today: circularity, traceability and imapct reduction. Their partnerships and scalability efforts enable these pillars.
1 – Circularity. Filippa K designs for the full life cycle of a garment with the intention of reducing, repairing, reusing and recycling.
2 – Traceability. They work towards tracing each material from fibre to garment with transparency and social responsibility throughout the supply chain.
3 – Impact Reduction. They measure their production and organisational impacts in order to actively lower their environmental footprint.
Filippa K is also a member of Fair Wair: a foundation that works with brands and industry influencers to support garment workers in realizing their rights to safe, dignified, properly paid employment. Fair Wear supports Filippa K by performing factory audits and annual performance check-ups as well as developing reports and action plans. Since 2008, Filippa K has worked with them to secure good labour standards in their supply chains, and to continue maintaining high compliance with the Filippa K Code of Conduct and international regulations.
