Handmade

Everything, but not mass-produced goods: Our products are made by hand in regional factories - often according to ancient, typical for the region techniques. This is how we establish traditions and support small local businesses.

PHILOMENA stands for fair and transparent production. We produce high quality products in small quantities to keep the special. Through our close and personal relationships with our master craftsmen and cooperation partners with many years of experience in the luxury sector of the garment industry, we can ensure that we work hand in hand on an exceptional product that reflects the high quality we have committed ourselves to. We also see it as our duty to promote craftsmanship and to help small businesses to secure their existence in the European apparel market. Every design in Berlin is created and sampled. All our handmade products are made in factories in Germany and Poland, not more than 150 km away from our office.

An additional advantage is the short transport routes. In this way we can avoid environmental pollution through a short transport and avoiding unnecessary packaging. The reduction of shipping costs on the one hand helps us, on the other hand, to pay our manufacturers fair salaries.
