Fashion Spotlight: RASPBERRY REPUBLIC
We are Magdalena and Piotr Stepinski, founders of Raspberry Republic. We are partners both in life and in business. In 2016, our passion to create something vivid, energetic and sustainable led us to invest our savings in a very limited amount of organic fabric with our own prints on it. The clothes quickly sold out and we decided that we could be on to something: that was the birth of the SS16 collection. Every season since then only motivates us to work harder because of the great feedback we get from customers and retailers.
We are a typical family business and we actually do a small victory dance every time you order something from us or give us great feedback! From the very beginning sustainability and ethics have mapped out our vision and mission and we are proud to say that we use certified organic cotton in almost all products and our printing and sewing process is also certified.
Our company is based in Poland, which is also a great production base for textiles and clothing. This fact allows us to personally control and verify that our partners are running an ethical business where employees are treated as they should be. We can guarantee that all our clothes are manufactured by adults that are legally hired and paid according to EU and local Polish regulations. The people that make our clothes are all health insured and receive a pension contribution.
We hope that all of these facts contribute to creating a unique and vivid brand that never stops to deliver exciting and different styles.
