Marja Baas is owner of ‘MYOMY’, a company that designs and produces leather fashion items with a conscious spirit.
“When we are selecting leather, we look at thickness, consistency, firmness, body and stand. Apart from these quality conditions, we always ask for the best possible option in view of sustainability,” says Marja.
Ever since MYOMY do goods started, the company has worked in the most sustainable manner as possible since Marja feels it is her obligation to do what is within her reach to leave the earth cleaner than we found her. She is pleased to see that more and more fashion brands and designers in the West are looking at sustainability this way.
“We started out as a frontrunner, but nowadays our business is slowly becoming more mainstream. Not because we changed, but because the world changed. That’s a perfect scenario, as far as I am concerned.”
