Esther Bätschmann



"Startklar" – Esther Bätschmann‘s first comprehensive Cradle-to-Cradle collection is ready for launch. It is a portable Casual Collection for both women and men. The design is defined by its clear lines and vibrant colours. All garments are manufactured from certified cradle-to-cradle materials and are completely recyclable: either in the technical or biological circuit. The goal is to avoid clothing waste and to create products that are greatly valued in both quality and style.
