GRETEL - SUSTAINABILITY
Raw materials and production are characterized by sustainability
The bed linen from Gretel is created exclusively through handcrafted weaving, made in Austria, where linen weaving has a centuries-long tradition. The raw materials consist of 50% GOTS-certified cotton and 50% long-fiber linen made from Belgian and French flax. As a result, the raw materials are free of any metals, chemicals and toxic dyes and are characterized by low water consumption in production.
Local production and short supply chain
To keep the supply chain short, the fibers are spun in Italy, dyed in Vienna and woven in the Mühlviertel.
The traditional craftsmanship of weaving is of particular importance. The old weaving art is brought together with modern design.
With personal values for high quality longevity
The founders Angelika Pretterhofer and Sarah Stieber do not make any compromises with their personal values for freedom and flexibility, even with their Gretel brand. The products stand for long-lasting enjoyment and a first-hand experience of traditional craftsmanship.
