The story of 8008.

What?

8008clothing is a brand which is located in Belgium and Finland. 8008clothing is all about exclusive, eco-friendly clothes that are made in Europe which are connected with urban culture/street culture and offered to young and wild people.

I’m Mattijs Deprez and I want to make an impact on the clothing industry by selling eco-friendly produced clothes. I’m 18 years old and I am studying business management at Laurea University of Applied Sciences in Finland. It scares me that the fashion industry currently uses around 79 billion cubic metres of water per year. I am taking the first little steps to make the fashion industry less polluting. Since this is still a very small brand, I am very often dependent of larger textile businesses, but I always try to sell clothes with the GOTS certified label. GOTS is a textile production certification that limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemical inputs during the production process of textiles. … GOTS certification means that our products meet the very highest standards.
