Tine Mollatt started byTiMo back in 2004 with a vision to offer something more than just another piece of clothing, she wanted to create something with value and a heart. We are aware of the massive impact the fashion industry has on our planet, which is why we are doing what we can to create clothes that last in sustainable fabrications.
For us it is important to respect the people involved in the supply chain, and to have the health of mother earth in mind when we make of our decisions.
We work with long lasting fabrications, shapes and trends. Pieces that are made to last, that can be washed over and over again. Clothes that are made to live in a girl’s wardrobe for years to come.
Did you know that viscose is made out of trees?
Deforestation is a major problem as a result of the fashion industry. Viscose is an important fabric for us at byTiMo, and almost all our dresses, tops and skirts are made out of 100% sustainable viscose. For every tree we take to make this viscose, we plant three more, making sure we don’t take more than we give back. Our viscose is 100% FSC Certified.
We recycle the water used when colouring and printing our fabrics, so we don’t pollute the rivers and drinking water where we produce.
Code of Conduct
We are proud to say that we work with a strict Code of Conduct towards all our suppliers and ateliers. This guarantees us that the workers are taken well care of, meaning given a proper wage, in safe working environments.
We work closely with the Women’s Shelters in Oslo, giving complete clothing packages to girls in crisis.
Our e-commerce site is operated by women who have been victims of difficult life circumstances, with help from the City Mission. When you shop at byTiMo.no, you are making a direct difference in another woman’s life.
In 2018 we helped starting the non-profit social innovation project “Ni en More” in Juarez, Mexico. We taught local women the skill of sowing and gave them a safe working environment. Read more at nienmoreshop.com.
