KOEN (Kō-en, 公園), Japanese for "Park“, "Public Garden“.
Nature is our public garden, offering us tranquility and peace at anytime. Nature provides us with healthy food. And it provides us with the most beautiful fibers from plants and animals to create clothes that soothe the body and mind. The aim of KOEN is to bring us close again to this simple connection.
We use 100% organic fabrics and sewing threads, gathered as close as possible to our Swiss production site. All parts of our clothes are made of natural materials, fully plastic-free and biodegradable. You will find further information about the materials used in the online description of each piece.
All our fabrics are GOTS certified. In addition to organic cultivation, this global standard guarantees compliance with environmental regulations and social criteria along the entire textile production chain.
Our vision for the future is to go beyond organic and to promote regenerative farming methods for fiber plants in Switzerland and other European countries.
We believe that clothes can have a positive impact on the well-being. Both in terms of relaxed cuts that allow the body to move freely, and in terms of natural and organic fabric choices. The style of KOEN is relaxed and minimalist. The clothes are designed to promote well-being in our bodies and to enjoy a clear aesthetic at the same time.
We think that in today's world it is important to return to local production. Because it is sustainable and enables the revitalization of local resources and communities. And because it brings the consumer the joy of high quality and unique products that cannot be found anywhere else. All our clothes are carefully handmade in Switzerland with high-grade finishing.
