- Established in 2007 by founders Jitske Lindgren and Carlien Helmink, Studio JUX focuses on maximising social-economic impact and minimising environmental impact.
- Studio JUX collections are made in their own factory, as well as through women empowerment projects and social enterprises based in Kathmandu, Nepal, all of which ensure safe and healthy working conditions, where employees receive a living wage and social security. You can meet the maker of your garment on the Studio JUX website.
- Materials used are organic, natural or recycled. Buying local fabrics in Nepal, like bamboo jersey, also increases their social-economic impact in one of the poorest countries in the world.
- Studio JUX are dedicated to minimising their footprint, and are investing in new eco-friendly materials such as vegan silk.
- Partnering with Terre des Hommes, Studio JUX train people on the job. The program provides structural education on a professional level and in life skills, offering vulnerable youth in Nepal a job, as well as information on how to manage their financial situation and compensation for medical expenses.
- Studio JUX won the Ethical Fashion Award in Paris in 2010, the Green Fashion Competition in 2012, and in 2013 the Foundation studiojux.org won the ASN World Prize in the category ‘fair trade’.
