We stand with Ukraine!

Do you talk about it, you don’t talk about it. Do you carry on as usual or do you press the pause button. We have come to the decision: We want, no, we have to talk about it. Behind a company, a brand, there are people who think and worry about the current situation every day – just as you surely do.

And what is it that offers at least some security in such a situation? Normality! Normality looks different for everyone: no matter whether you carry on as usual and avoid the news, whether you are caught up by your worries and thoughts in the evening, or whether you consciously deal with the topic every day. Everyone has the right to their own normality and we want to help with that. We were asked by our long-time Ukrainian production partner Gronotex to support them in maintaining their normality. For this reason, it is very important to us right now to maintain and nurture our business relations as far as possible.

But we – the people behind CARL GROSS – also want to help. Why? Because you have to do something against the feeling of being powerless and of not being able to do anything. For this reason, we are in close contact with aid organizations and have in-house collected important donations such as hygiene products, baby food, articles of medical need, etc. By last Friday, two van loads had already been donated, and further dates are in planning.

People helping people – this has always been important and is even more important now. Everyone deals with the current situation in their own way and there is no right or wrong way. Do what feels right for you.

As already made clear in our last blog article, fashion and sustainability do not always go hand in hand. Especially not when it comes to fast fashion. Recently, the general rethinking in our society has brought the topic of the environment and sustainability into a new focus. People are more concerned and care more - but how can we shop more sustainably? Today's blog post deals with this question.
Trends chase trends, collection follows collection – new clothes are bought while old clothes are thrown away. The fast pace of today’s Fast Fashion industry has long since ensured that clothes are hardly given the appreciation they actually deserve. The issue of sustainability is also increasingly being pushed into the background. The Slow Fashion movement is strictly opposed to this development. We would like to use Earth Day on 22 April, with the motto “Your clothes make the man”, as an opportunity to focus on the topic of Slow Fashion.
The weather is getting better and the temperatures are starting to rise, which means it’s time for light, summer-friendly fabrics and textures. One fabric in particular should not be forgotten: seersucker. Read what you should know about this fabric and how to best showcase the seersucker suit in today’s blog post.
