Takoda has its own green neat menswear outfit & jewelry line.
The collection we have now is so sustainable as possible, but there is always room for improvement, always room for growth, but our aim is to achieve it.
We are now doing research into recycled clothing and hemp, which turns out to be more sustainable than cotton, immediately a nod to Holland.
For a sustainable business chain must be thought through every link, think of the logistics, packaging, production, materials and how people are treated.
Takoda ® is an official registered trademark in the Benelux, located in Rotterdam.
Takoda means everyone's friend, comes from the native Indians, the company was founded in 2013 by Alain Stout, has undergone multiple transformations.
Basically we just want to contribute to a better world where we can.
Alain already lives as green and vegan as possible in his private life and that ultimately translates into his business choices and activities.
It is just great to create and especially natural if people really benefit from it and can participate.
It remains difficult and Alain has multiple interests and passions such as urbanism and even the hospitality industry.
But you have to make a purposeful choice to really make a difference.
That has become menswear just because it's fun and then dive deep into how we can make a positive difference with it.
Giving the textile a second life what would otherwise be labeled as waste, making you circular and recycling. Having your own production company would be nice.
It's a tough branch and somehow the more people say you're not going to make it, the more motivated I am to make it work.
Yet clothing is a primary need.
We use the rest of the skills for that one purpose, does not mean that you do not have to pilot them completely, you take everything with you.
Fair trade, a win-win is always desirable.
