"Peace is not everything, but everything is nothing without peace" - Willi Brandt's words from 1981 are more relevant today than ever. The peace movement of the time was one of the reasons why Dorothea and Heinz Hess founded the fair fashion label hessnatur in 1976. As a commitment to freedom, fairness and the protection of the environment.
We are continuing this idea under the motto #Peaceshirts. Together with our designers and five selected influencers, we designed a charity collection. Ten different prints. Ten individual interpretations of peace. Made from 100% organic cotton. Exclusively available in our online shop.
The starting signal for our #peaceshirts collection is given by Melina from melinaophelia, Katharina from hiermitmir and our two designers Vanessa (design womenswear) and Tobias (design menswear). The proceeds from the T-shirts then go to selected aid organizations in Ukraine. You can find out more about this below.
"So much suffering. And all of a sudden there was a wrinkle of guilt on so many of our faces. It's a scary world out there, it makes you wonder what you can do. And it makes you question a lot of your little worries and problems. But in the midst of all this sympathy, we must not make the mistake of forgetting something very important: gratitude. For fresh air in the morning. For the delicious cake on Sunday. For freshly made beds. For beating hearts.
Our own little worlds continue to turn - and they are allowed to do so without a guilty conscience. Because they mean LIFE and HOPE. And that's exactly what my peace shirt stands for, which I designed together with my sister-in-law and artist Radostina Baier and whose net proceeds go to the SOS Children's Village.
My name is Anna Baier , I am 36 years young, mother of three children and I provide my community on @apinchofstyle_ with a lot of inspiration in the areas of interior design, delicious food and with sustainable, honest and grounding thoughts from life.
