Jungle Folk - conscious clothing | Victoria Dress

We always look out for conscious fashion brands that create unique pieces and produce fair, consciously and sustainable, as we love fashion but we also think it is very important that people are more aware of what they are purchasing and under what conditions it has been produced.
Jungle Folk is a Swiss brand that was founded in 2013 by the designer Pauline Treis, inspired after a trip through Colombia.
The clothes are produced in Colombia by local artisans and sewers under fair conditions in small quantities.
We think its great, that you can see on each item page on the website who worked on the piece you are about to buy, which makes the shopping experience even more personal.



What is special is that Jungle Folk doesn't launch multiple collections every year but offers timeless classics, high quality pieces that can be worn in many different ways and for every occasion.
We think it's much more conscious to purchase a piece to love for ever than to buy new clothes every season.


The Victoria Dress looks pretty simple at first sight, the cut is straight and loose, but the back is very spectacular with a beautiful low V neckline.
The grey Victoria dress is made from 50% recycled plastic bottles and 50% recycled cotton yarn.
It is very soft and comfortable on the skin and is light enough to wear in the summer just with sandals or ankle boots, but it can also be worn during the colder season with a jacket on top and tights.
The Victoria dress is also available in white, made from 100% organic cotton.

For us Jungle Folk is a proof that fair and conscious fashion can be very stylish and the pieces are timeless so they can be worn for years.
We really like the designs as we think they have an easy-going but still very fashionable love-life-charme, and it is definitely worth to invest in some pieces as they will be a part of your wardrobe essentials for years.
Pauline Treis only designs women's clothes but some of them can also be worn by men as they are unisex, like scarfs or caps.
And we do hope that one day she will also design some men's basics!
