Founded in 2006, Kristinit was named Lucky Magazine’s “One to Watch” designer and has been featured in numerous publications including Teen Vogue, OK Magazine, Style.com, Nylon, Coco Eco Magazine, and Apparel News. The collection is a fresh and sexy interpretation on sustainable fashion. The line uses a combination of natural, organic and vintage fabrics, local manufacturing, and fair trade practices. Kristinit donates a percentage of each sale to various animal and environmental causes.
The overall concept of Kristinit is high fashion that is sustainable. For Kristinit, women don’t need to look like hippies to dress in an eco conscious way. What sets Kristinit apart is that their designs contain a depth that goes beyond aesthetics. The clothes are beautiful but also the beauty is reflected in the process: in the ethical fabric sourcing and how Kristinit manufactures their clothing using fair practices.
Kristinit's philosophy is that clothing should be beautiful from start to finish, and this includes the fabrics that they use. The collection uses a combination of innovative natural, organic and vintage fabrics. These extraordinary fabrics often inspire a whole piece of clothing and tell a beautiful story that you wouldn't get from mass-made department store clothing.
Kristinit's clothing is beautifully constructed using only the finest luxury fabrics. Eventually these dresses will biodegrade, but before they do, a woman will have a lifetime of wear because the designs are classic and timeless. True heirlooms to be passed on to daughter and granddaughter.
Kristinit loves the planet and hates to see the excess of pollution caused by the processing of synthetic textiles and dyes. It hurts the animals and the earth. For this reason, Kristinit has chosen to use a combination of innovative natural, organic and vintage fabrics, to minimize pollution and inspire people to think about clothing in a new way.
Kristina Lenss, the designer of Kristinit has two great passions: fashion and the natural beauty of the planet and its diverse inhabitants. Therefore, Kristinit continues to donate 5% of each sale to various animal and environmental causes.
Kristinit has chosen to have their manufacturing done locally by women they know. This supports the local economy and also gives them the chance to develop personal relationships with everyone in their supply chain.
