»YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT YOU STAND FOR, WHAT YOU REPRESENT, WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU AND WHAT YOU ARE WORTH« (Scott Livengood)
100% MADE IN GERMANY Our booklets and all TASCHENBEGLEITER are hand made with joy in Germany. We only use high quality materials to produce durable and sturdy »bag companions« - many are customized one-offs. The sewing takes place in a small workshop in the Saarland region; our stainless steel clips are made in Bavaria, where every clip undergoes several tests. All ROTERFADEN BOOKLETS are printed and processed in Germany.
RECYCLED PAPER Our business stationery, packaging, booklet covers, notepads and lists are made from recycled paper. All other papers are FSC certified. All booklets are printed and processed in Germany.
NO PLASTICS! ROTERFADEN says NO! to plastic for our packaging, postage and our display stands. We do without plastic wrappers and bubble wrap, and use tissue paper and masking tape instead.
PLANT-BASED AND CHROME-FREE We only use chrome-free or vegetable-tanned leather from European cattle.
RECYCLING AND UPCYCLING DANCEFLOOR is a durable plastic flooring material that was specially developed for ballet dancing and is resistant to scratches. We buy it as off-cuts from the manufacturers. PRINTING BLANKET is indestructible and good-looking: fragments of printed words and images bear witness to the material’s previous use inside an offset printing machine. Every cover made from printing blanket is a different color.
GOOD VIBES GREENPEACE ENERGY supplies our ROTERFADEN HEADQUARTERS with electricity.
SMALL LOT SIZES We don’t order huge production runs that end up being sent back and disposed of or destroyed. Instead, we send smaller batches, and our retailers can order more if and when it is necessary.
WORKING CONDITIONS Happy workers in good jobs! Sometimes we may need a bit more time to finish an order, and you won’t always have your delivery by the next day. No one works nights.
