1 People is a global sustainable luxury brand which aims to provide conscious fashionistas with high-quality everyday apparel. The brand has been featured in British VOGUE and carries the OEKO-TEX and GOTS certifications. The company has given funding to charities including Yayasan Solemen Indonesia, Hope Business For Good, and The Sumba Foundation.
1 People was founded by Rea and Jonathan Tjoa Algreen, a Danish couple who believe in making an impact through business. Rea has always had a passion for sustainability, and with Jonathan's many years of experience growing and investing in socially beneficial businesses, the duo united their strengths to create a unique fashion offering. Rea spotted a gap in the market where women’s fashion didn’t tick all the boxes of style, sustainability and comfort – and 1 People was born.
“We aim to be cruelty-free, so we constantly do our research on innovative textiles that come from natural plant sources. ”
The brand prioritises materials that are kind to the Earth, animals and humans – such as pineapple leather and leather made from wine grapes. 1 People also uses PYRATEX, a seaweed-based fibre from the North Atlantic, which helps eliminate free radicals, caring for the wearer's skin. Organic cotton and Tencel are other materials the brand frequently works with.
Workers in 1 People's supply chain are paid a living wage. Diversity and inclusion is also important to the brand.
The manufacturing process takes place in a variety of countries, including India, Indonesia and China. 1 People maintains a close relationship with their manufacturing partners to ensure transparency.
1 People's packaging is made from recycled paper made in Bali – with the aim to empower local communities where the brand operates.
The brand aims to be cruelty-free and invests a lot of time into researching innovative vegan materials such as seaweed fibre, creating capsule collections around these textiles.
