SUFI was founded in 2020 with the aim of creating our favourite items in the most responsible way possible. That means organic materials, natural dyes and small-scale, local production.

Can clothing be made in a less harmful way, while at the same time promoting biodiversity, storing carbon and creating community? SUFI is our living, growing answer to this question.


We use only natural, organic fabrics for our items, while also keeping an eye on provenance to reduce travel distances. Whenever possible, we choose local.


Colouring the fabrics is one of the most toxic aspects of garment production. When buying coloured fabrics, we always choose certified fabrics and suppliers to ensure the highest environmental standards. 

Many of our items are naturally dyed at our studio. This is a toxin-free, age-old and slow (!) process, in which we use plants or food wastes such as avocado peels.


Many of our items are lovingly handmade in our studio in Maastricht. For some items, we collaborate with small-scale, local production ateliers whose work environment we know and love.

Ecology, economics and spirit are woven together. By using materials as if they were a gift, and returning that gift through worthy use, we find balance.
