Founded by fashion designer Maria Tverdokhleb, ONO-Project is engaged in and open to various artistic, scientific and business collaborations in order to create and encourage an innovative and ethical path in fashion and other creative industries. These are the main principles we follow:
- Reducing negative environmental impact of the fashion industry with a further goal of turning it into a neutral/positive impact. Research on alternative solutions of material sourcing, transport and manufacturing.
- Ethical approach. Every person engaged in the process is treated with the same respect, payed a fair wage with fair working hours. Every ONO-Project piece sold is provided with a Certificate listing the names of people who created it, and the origin of the fabrics.
- Building an economical model that would be sustainable for the brand, fair for the producer and the customer. Our goal is to shorten the distribution and supply chain in order to be able to provide the best quality of product with the best price. We don’t follow fashion seasons and consolidate our efforts to create the best products with minimum material/financial waste.
- ONO-Project research is the union between art, fashion, humans and nature. We believe in the mind changing power of beauty and boundless creativity. That is why creative collaboration is an integral part our brand.
- Consumer education, to encourage thoughtful and quality-oriented buying decisions.
Perfect solutions are yet to be discovered and we are currently testing and integrating new approaches and techniques, but as a Chinese proverb says: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”. We are happy to share the path with those who already joined us and are looking forward to meet new like minded collaborators (read more in blogue).
