About

IMG_2886.JPG
Hi there, welcome to WERA DESIGN!
Here you will find stylish and handmade products for the little ones with a focus on sustainability.
Each item is made from organic, recycled or other sustainable materials – from the thread to the label – and is produced by myself here in Basel, Switzerland with a lot of love, care and attention to detail. 
I am a designer and crafter at heart, having attended art school and working as a graphic designer for years.
My other passion in life is planning and organising, so I work part-time as an events manager.
Through creating sustainable clothes for tiny humans, I found a way of expressing my creativity 
and making a contribution to a better future.
At WERA DESIGN you can shop for your loved ones with a clear conscience about your effect
on the environment and also support a Slow & Fair Fashion Business.
Thank you so much for being here!

Love, Julia

Sustainability

In order to be as sustainable as possible, I try to keep the stocks to a minimum.

Most of my products are made to order, this is why the delivery time can be slightly longer.

When buying fabrics, thread or labels I only order sustainable materials.

Those can vary from organic, recycled or TENCEL™.

Below you can see different certificates or brands, which are used in the products in this store.

OEKOTEX Standard 100

If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health. In the test they take into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory requirements.

GOTS

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

TENCEL™

TENCEL® is a Lenzing AG brand name for lyocell fibre. TENCEL® is a fibre of natural origin that is industrially manufactured. The original raw material is wood (usually eucalyptus). The fibre itself is produced in a closed loop, making it particularly environmentally friendly. The wood is sourced from sustainable forestry or plantations and therefore does not compete with food cultivation.
