With regards to sustainability & transparency, what are your core values that define how your brand operates?
With my brand Naomi Rachèl Timan I want to create less waste, so therefore we only use recycled leather. We also think it’s important to tell the story about what the leather used to be in a previous life. So every bag comes with a tag which says what it used to be, like I WAS A SOFA.
With regards to sustainability & transparency, what are the "hot topics" you are currently working on and try to improve yourself on?
I really want to inspire and show to people that waste can be super cool and fashionable. We need to go to a circulair economy and so we need to think more in a circulair way. With Naomi Rachèl Timan I want to contribute to this change.
