SEE THE BEAUTY IN THE WORLD, AND TAKE CARE OF IT
Our world is beautiful. The way we treat it needs to change.
EVIG’s commitment is to create a better way.
Today, we are creating the world’s most sustainable activewear.
EVIG is sustainable danish design handmade to order. Combining ecology, functionality & aesthetics, the EVIG design is committed to high quality, natural materials, timeless design and uncompromising sustainability.
EVIG is Danish for ‘everlasting, enduring’, originating from Old Nordic ‘ævi’ meaning ‘for life’ and ‘ever’.
EVIG is for life and for ever. For EVIG – by Alexandra Jakobsen.
A BETTER WAY
Clothing is one of the most polluting industries, and especially sportswear is most often made of fossil-fuel-based materials that are highly emitting, toxic, and destructive to our world.
We set out to create a better way.
What we do means something and every choice matters. This is why we have gone back to the beginning of the value chain to re-design each step in the most sustainable way, possible. Every single step in the creation of each style has been carefully redesigned in order to have the lowest impact on our environment. We are there, on the ground, speaking to every single person, and ensuring the environmental impacts are minimized as much as possible, and continuously so.
EVIG is made of a carefully selected plant-based fabric of the highest environmental standard and quality. Woven in Portugal from sustainably forested eucalyptus, TENCEL™ Lyocell is an EU Eco-Awarded renewable, non-toxic and naturally biodegradable fibre with an incredibly low environmental impact. Designed with our weaver especially for EVIG, we have created a beautiful fabric that offers silky smoothness and draping fitting, as well as functionality and endurance.
HANDMADE IN BERLIN
EVIG is handmade to order in our small studio in Kreuzberg, Berlin. Each piece of clothing is made for you, and made by hand, with full attention to every detail, giving each piece of clothing its own subtly unique variation. By producing only what is truly wanted, we can avoid waste and overproduction.
With danish roots, EVIG’s design represents timeless classics of long-lasting quality, that embraces all bodies, ages, sexes, sizes, shapes, activities and styles. EVIG’s aesthetics are classics transcending the changing of seasons and trends. We are against the culture of obsolescence, disposables and fashions. The designs are made to last across seasons and activities – for running, for yoga, for living – for EVIG.
