During our visit to Copenhagen a few weeks ago we had the pleasure to meet Vigga Svensson, founder/owner of children wear company Katvig. The range is made using sustainable materials such as organic cotton and recycled polyester and Vigga has even invented her own type of ‘recycled’ cotton she calls R.O.C. (Recycled Organic Cotton). When the bales of organic cotton plants are spun into yarn at the factory, Katvig picks up the cotton noil that are left over and turns them into this Recycled Organic Cotton.
Vigga is a vocal advocate of sustainable fashion and environmental issues and she has developed five principles for her company – a sustainable action plan that she has shared with the Danish Government and the EU Parliament.
