I am not a Virgin

The mysteriously named brand I am not a Virgin produces comfy basics for both men and women. Nothing special? Think again! The brand is committed to reducing pollution by incorporating plastic into its clothing. To ensure that the fabric is still soft and wearable, the polyester from these plastic bottles is mixed with cotton. 

The team behind I am not a Virgin consists of employees who learned the tricks of the trade at renowned brands like The Gap, Marc Jacobs and J.Crew. In addition, scientific organizations like the MoMa got on board as well. The scientists and designers work closely together in their search for innovative ways to reconcile fashion and sustainability. For the actual production of their clothes, the team turns to a company from the Dominican Republic that swears by fair working conditions for each employee.
