Fraenck is a social & sustainable fashion accessory brand, founded in 2018. It started with two aspiring designers (Ho&Mulder) feeling responsibility for the impact of the things they brought into the world. When they graduated from the Artez Academy of the Arts they felt a disconnect between the inner workings of the fashion industry and the way they wanted to operate. Together they started working on bringing design, fashion and honesty together. Both operational in the B2C and B2B market, Team Fraenck upcycles and recycles as many (textile) materials they can get their hands on. These are translated into a consumer collection, designed with and made from upcycled vegan leather and sailcloth (tarpaulin), but also a wholesale collection made for companies looking to recycle their own promotional materials, such as flags, banners, building facades and more. Their latest efforts include a collection of outdoor accessories made from discarded polyester tents and a range of items made from leftover textiles from Dutch trains. Every single item is handcrafted in the social workshop of Fraenck in the city centre of Arnhem, The Netherlands. A core team of fashion professionals guide an ever expanding team of individuals looking to improve themselves and learn new skills everyday.
