[Noble brand]
VonWinckelmann is a noble brand in every sense of the word: fair trade and/or organic, stemming from classical tradition. Franklin von Winckelmann, the last descendant of the aristocratic Von Winckelmann family, has carried on his noble family name by founding an innovative, unconventional brand of apparel and lifestyle designs: ‘VonWinckelmann’ with respect for environment and people, focuses on developing and producing designs in an honest and fair trade manner.

After ten years in november 2014, VonWinckelmann launched a sustainable collection of interior and hospitality accessories. In addition to the custom made concept of men’s apparel, which can be tailored to the requirements of the buyer.

‘Imperfect Slow Living’ by VonWinckelmann is based on handloom, recycled and non recycled textiles and dyed in an authentic process of organic leaves. Through this unusual finishing process of the product, the colours are delicately faded giving the final product a vintage look that is so familiar in VonWinckelmann’s signature. The production of ‘Imperfect Slow Living’ collections are taken place in Bali, Jawa and Lombok (Indonesia) and only in collaboration with specialized local companies. In this way the exclusive and handcrafted character of the ‘Imperfect Slow Living’ collections can be ensured.

The colours are not resistant to abrasiveness and are sensitive to strong light which creates a slightly washed look. The organic collection consists of a line of tees that richly combines prints with embroideries.

Franklin shared and developed his expertise, from providing the farmers with organic cotton seed to the weaving, knitting, dyeing and refining the fibres, resulting in a complete women’s and men’s apparel collection.
