BYE, BYE CLOTHING
What we have to tell you today, we regret ourselves: We will no longer sell clothing in the future, but will concentrate entirely on our core area, natural care products. We think this is a pity because T-shirts, socks, trousers & Co. have always been an integral part of the Soeder range - even one that goes back further in our history than, say, soap!
Several reasons have led us to this decision, they are closely interrelated. Their causes also lie in the structure of the international textile market. As we have written a few times ourselves, it is a jungle. And if you have ever been in a jungle, you know that sometimes you can only see a few metres. The search for materials that we can work with in good conscience is correspondingly time-consuming and research-intensive, because you often have to look behind the scenes: For example, the fact that cotton is organically grown does not mean that all aspects of sustainability are taken into account in its processing. And working sustainably is, as you know, our core philosophy.
This brings us to the next point: we could not produce our clothing ourselves, but resorted to partners in other European countries. That is not really our way. With every Soeder product, we not only want to be able to trace the complete manufacturing route, we want to have control over it. And we have that when we manufacture in our own factory in Schwerzenbach near Zurich.
But one thing is at least as important: we now have a little more time, of course. And we will use this time to concentrate fully on what we have become experts in over the last few years. At the moment, several new products are bubbling away in our cauldrons. We don't want to reveal exactly what they are yet, but just this: the scents that have been flowing through our hallowed halls in the last few months have been pretty great.
Since we have to clear our stock, there is a 70 percent discount on selected Soeder clothing. You can find last pieces in our Zurich store at Limmatquai or Ankerstrasse. Our designs are unisex, timeless and of high quality. You can get clothes for the coming cold days for a good price (did we already tell you about our fabulous sweaters and our chubby-warm jackets?). Be quick, from many models we have only remaining stocks.
One thing we ask to note: The sale items are excluded from exchange.
