WITH A GREATER PURPOSE
A FOCUS ON VALUE
The brand stands for the acceptance and preservement of all natural life despite of difference, contributing to a slowed down & plant based lifestyle, aiding in the transition from eco-consciousness to eco-behaviorism and striving towards a better safeguarding of respect and connectivity.
A MESSAGE OF ETHICS
Allend® is a slow fashion brand built-from-the-ground-up that shows a message of awareness with a striking iconography alongside an alluring coherence between timeless garment spirit and contemporary garment design.
It’s an ecologically designed fashion identity for those who want to make their (shared) wardrobe more environmentally friendly, wearing garments that reflect a commitment to bringing about a responsible fashion industry and more appreciation for people, animals and the planet.
A HABIT TO PROTECT
But that's not the whole story. Allend® comes with a special love for animals.
All garments in the collection are produced vegan and a percentage of Allend®'s profits are donated to animal welfare and protection institutions or institutions where the welfare relationship between humans and
animals is central.
The first step to creating a better world is believing it is possible.
Committed to upholding its protective role, Allend® will help create that better world. For all.

FOR A BETTER FUTURE
THE ALLEND® 10
The Allend® 10 are Allend®'s recurring
features that help showcase effort in
conscious production, an important piece of the puzzle in the pursuit of a
long lasting survival of the
planet and its inhabitants.
Allend® offers a quality, modern and comfortable daywear outfit for all and all body types, designed in
straight and smooth lines focusing on a uniform silhouette, easily matching with a variety of other clothing items & extras.
Made in Europe under fair and safe standards in a
high level of care and respect for people, animals and the planet, Allend® meets all required social, ethical and ecological demands.
Thanks to natural fibers and a natural enzyme bio polish pre-wash, Allend®' monomaterial garments are highly skin friendly and retain shape and softness well through washing, assuring a long lasting, comfortable feel.
Vegan friendly. Charity supportive. Eligible for repairs.
Made to cherish. Made to last.
Would you like to know more?
Durable, quality items made to cherish and last, retaining fit over time. Manufacturing is guaranteed to meet high environmental requirements as well as extensive social criteria, from raw material cultivation to finished product. Allend® uses certified organicly grown cotton. Before being ring-spun into fabric, the organic yarns are
double combed, resulting in a strong and smooth fabric surface with a soft feel, making the garments highly comfortable to wear.
Allend® apparel is made of organically grown and certified materials. Because of the skin's absorbent abilitities, it’s best for clothing in direct contact with our skin to be natural. Synthetic fibers in regularly washed daywear
apparel shed microplastics, polluting ecosystems. Also, an organic garment made from natural fibers is easiest to biodegrade when the item has surpassed the stages of repair, reuse and recycle.
ALL BODY TYPES
Garments are made up in straight, smooth lines for all body shapes. The brand divides clothing into sizes, not genders. We place different body shapes, irrespective of gender, at the center of the clothes' conception, to make items that everyone can wear comfortably and practically and that the silhouette is uniform. Allend®
apparel is available in many different sizes.
MADE IN EUROPE
Allend® garments are made with the highest level of care in Europe. The current collection is made in Portugal, in a single factory located north of Porto. Portugal is a stable and responsible country and with its wide range of dynamic, innovative, fair and safe production facilities able to produce true craftsmanship textile items, the country has been widely recognized as a futureproof centre of European textile production.
Allend® garments are bio polished: fabrics are prewashed with natural enzymes, a non-chemical fabric pretreatment with biodegradable enzymes (cellulase protein molecules) that slough off all protruding particles from the fabric surface, resulting in a the highest degree of softness and skin tolerance.
Committed to designing cruelty free products, Allend® believes the world would be a better place if more people embraced the power of plants and a greater kindness to animals. Allend® apparel is free of ingredients from the commercial exploitation of animals (cultivation, slaughter, hunting, fishing) and has not been tested on animals.
FAIR & SAFE STANDARDS
Manufacturing conditions in Allend® partner factories meet all standards of the ILO (International Labor Organization) and comply with controlled and overseen European guidelines and international certification authorities for dignified employee working conditions: fair payment, regulated working times, health insurance, ethical business practices, safe labor conditions and a ban on child labor.
Recyclability sets Allend® apart from many others. Smartly supporting a circular economy when the garment has surpassed the stages of repair and/ or reuse, a garment composed of only one type of fiber is easiest to recycle. On top of that, a garment made from one type of fiber is easiest to biodegrade, when the item has
surpassed the stages of repair, reuse and recycle. Any metallic reinforcements for durability are small, easily removable and made from recycled metal.
A habit to protect drives Allend® to save up for charity. Making an impact beyond producing durable clothing, Allend® wants to actively contribute to make things better for all living beings and strives to stand united in the love for people, animals and the planet with charitable organizations involved in cross-species aid programs. All
charitative accomplishments are made public on Allend®’s social channel(s).
