Financing the first few months from their own resources was a brave step by Catja Günther, Sophia Wittrock and Larissa Schmid, who went live with their online shop in November 2019. It should quickly become apparent that they are on the right track for the sustainable zeitgeist. Two successful offline events and a still opened financing round in July 2020 later, they established the first online shopping community for fairly produced fashion and lifestyle products in Germany. But their goals are even further – the three visionaries plan to expand jesango across Europe.
And behind the scenes? Here, too, things are different at jesango.
On the new platform, small brands with little online presence are highlighted, built up and expanded in order to make jesango a European fair fashion hub that functions as a counterweight to fast fashion. How it works? The Munich women offer a green fulfillment service. Means: jesango helps fashion brands with scaling, takes over the logistics of the brands and is on hand with marketing and sales.
Clearly: plastic-free packaging and CO2-neutral shipping.
Which brands can participate? Brands that meet the founders’ strict catalog of criteria and the factors style, sustainability and fairness. jesango guarantees sustainability along the entire value chain from production to the end customer. In addition to resource-saving and environmentally friendly production, the brands must guarantee working conditions that are secure, gender-independent and non-hazardous to health.
