Fast fashion and irresponsible production techniques and materials have led to the fashion industry producing 10% of annual global carbon emissions. That is more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. Yi-Mei Truxes started fashion brand "Bembien" to bring artisanal craftsmanship and production techniques from around the world to the global market. All products are made by hand using sustainable and naturally abundant materials.
