Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility

Karlowsky Fashion GmbH is a medium-sized family business from Wanzleben-Börde near Magdeburg, Saxony-Anhalt, which is already in its 5th generation of offering innovative workwear, as well as shoes and accessories for the catering, hotel, medical, care and wellness industries. As an internationally operating company, our sphere of activity extends far beyond our location in Wanzleben-Börde. However, the foundation for a more sustainable future is laid at our company headquarters outside Magdeburg. For us, this already begins in the design and development phase of our products, where we take environmentally relevant product requirements into account. Our goal is to continuously improve the sustainability aspect of our products. The long-term goal is to become one of the most sustainable apparel brands in our industries.
