In the spring of 2009 Franck & Fischer ApS took their first step in the sustainable direction as Gentofte-firm had produced a Fair Trade Certified line of nightwear and baby blankets and bedding in organic cotton. It was a success and has meant that the company has chosen to make all its products crocheted in 100% organic cotton yarn-dyed under the Eco-Tex Standard 100 certification.
By getting all of our products crocheted in North China, we are helping to give women jobs in the lower income group of China. Most choose to crochet from home so they are close to family, but they can also go to the factory and meet other women who sit and crochet our products, says the company’s owners, Annemarie Franck and Charlotte Fischer.
The organic crocheted collection will be presented in Formland Autumn 2009 in Fairs MCH Herning. Among the latest products are a series of hair accessories for little and big girls, mobiles to cradle or baby changing rooms, and new variants of the popular musical boxes and babyrangler. All crocheted news is dominated by the familiar animals from the farm and jungle of the beautiful colors.
New designs in plantation tree are also part of the autumn collection. This time in the form of measuring sticks for the children’s room, painted with an environmentally friendly lacquer panel, in order to write the name and date of the chalk as the child grows. The graphic format elephant also from peg rows, characterizes these measuring sticks in black or red.
A changing game series in the tree is also among the latest additions. Thoughtful design with an emphasis on development, play and learning, are behind the 4 puzzles with fun animal designs.
