Hello & thank you very much for visiting our online shop!
I am Sarina, the founder of fairoase.ch. I have been running the online shop with great passion since 2019, I love the work involved and I want to make fair fashion in Switzerland easier to access.
It all started when I first saw the documentation a few years ago "The True Cost" by Andrew Morgan (2015). I'm still shocked that no one is talking about the miserable, unethical fashion industry.
From that point on I have Turned his back on fast fashion and almost completely refrained from consuming clothing for a year. This is how I found out for myself which parts I wear the most and what I really need (and what not). When I wanted to bring a few basics and a bit of freshness into my wardrobe, I became aware of slow fashion.
Fairly and sustainably produced clothing unfortunately still has a somewhat outdated image - but fortunately that is changing noticeably. More and more slow fashion brands with great ethical concepts and modern designs are appearing on the market.
Many of them are scattered around the world at home and the Online ordering from abroad to Switzerland is known to be expensive. The return shipment is usually not worthwhile due to the high return costs and so an order is rarely an option. At least it was like that for me;).
Our goal is to take on this effort for our customers and international, sustainable brands to pack into the assortment.
