During the production of garments, up to 20% of resources are lost and are considered fabric waste. With AA Gold Arnold Gevers proves that textiles can also be produced without waste. He starts at the beginning of the value chain and thus designs patterns without waste.
“Today’s fashion system does not reflect the needs of today’s world,” says Arnold Gevers, fashion designer and professor at the AMD Academy of Fashion & Design in Munich. Because he does not want to submit to this system, he has given his visions a framework and founded AA Gold in 2019. His goal: change.
The Change is GOLD
The use of sustainable materials and a contemporary adaptation of the design process are an integral part of his concept. His enthusiasm for the zero waste theme, which he developed during his collaboration on the Kopa Kona collection with the artist Michael Hofstetter, has been further developed with AA Gold. The result? Contemporary styles for contemporary people.
100 percent style – 0 percent waste.
The design method behind zero waste fashion requires the transformation of certain details and shapes of the garments. Our aim is to develop designs that are both contemporary and fashionable despite their limitations. The styles are fresh and with flair and at home in fashionable wardrobes.
Start of the crowdfunding campaign: October 2019
The implementation of the AA Gold collection Maxi Over can be supported from October 2019 within the framework of a crowdfunding campaign.

When the finest organic cotton meets extraordinary design (and casual label names like Loose Larry and Classy Claus!) and every product is far too good for underneath your clothes, then we are talking about Vatter. The Munich-based eco-label (for women AND men, babies and toddlers) has made it its mission to free eco-underwear from its “love killer” stereotype. Mission accomplished! Thomas Vatter, who after his business studies had a Music-Flirt-Platform in Switzerland, and Marcus Faulwasser, an advertiser with his own agency, have been making bio and sexy underwear since 2015.
The bras and bustiers with their cool prints are almost too good to hide underneath your clothes. The undergarments are made of GOTS-certified cotton and when worn correctly, they are eye-catchers.
Cotton with attitude, because organic can also be sexy!
For women, VATTER offers three panty and two bra styles anywhere from classic to fancy. Men can choose between airy boxer shorts, classic boxer briefs or modern trunk shorts. And for those who don’t know what’s behind these names – the two VATTER founders, who by the way already went to school together in Schongau – can give you advice and support when it comes to choosing the perfect underwear.
Gut zu wissen: The boxer shorts are made from 100% organic cotton, which is normally used to make high-quality shirts. You will love it!
Pleases the skin and rejoices the conscience
By the way, the sexy organic boxers and briefs are packed in cardboard boxes made of 100% recycled material, which of course are printed with vegetable-based colors. With a part of their proceeds, the Munich-based label supports environmental or social projects. You can find the latest information on their website.
