Lika Vilkova

Lika Volkova is Co-founder and designer for SANS a fashion company that are producing eco friendly garments and are receiving rave reviews from many sustainable design communities. Despite this Lika disagrees and argues that her line is not an eco-fashion company for the simple reason she feels eco-fashion doesn’t exist.

“How can fashion possibly be good for the environment? You produce things – you make them. All garments, with the exception of secondhand clothing, produces waste, expends energy and exploits the earth – things that can hardly be called eco.”

The company offers digital patterns, which you can buy and download to make yourself - aspiring to green fashion and encouraging others to do the same. You can watch a video where Lika discusses her beliefs behind the concept at: SANS
