The Essentials

 

You might expect a seamstress to daydream about becoming a fashion designer. But an accountant? “My creative juices were overflowing. I began to draw landscapes, model and take art classes. In 2009, I rethought my career and chose clothing design,” recalls Susan Rahmann, founder of Rahmen + Co.

Her company creates fashions that are versatile and stylish and perfect for active people. She uses only environmentally sustainable materials, like fast-growing bamboo and hemp.

“Rahmen + Co is more than a name on a label. Years from now, I want to say that we helped the clothing industry be less abusive to people and animals. It’s a different mindset, a more sustainable mindset, and it’s a big part of our mission,” explains Rahmann.

Driving change is a tall order, but not for a driven woman. Rahmann embraces discipline, having grown up in a military family and having lived in Thailand and several  American cities before settling in an inspiring little mountain town in Colorado.

And about that name, “Rahmen.” It’s pronounced similarly to the founder’s surname, but means “frame” in German. It’s the ideal word to describe someone who has framed her own life—and inspires others to do the same.

Ethic-Chic

 
The team at Rahmen + Co carefully and consciously choose to work with sustainable materials like bamboo viscose/cotton blends, hemp blends and soy/cotton blends, and use environmentally-friendly dyes. They also seek out socially aware American fabric companies that sell textiles fabricated with the environment in mind to further their mission to guide the clothing industry toward more green, sustainable practices.

All fabrics chosen for Rahmen + Co are comfortable, long-lasting, and durable. They love bamboo blends because the smooth, light fibers of bamboo textiles are surprisingly soft, strong and breathable. And because bamboo is the fastest-growing plant on earth, it can be re-harvested frequently without causing damage to the plant system and surrounding environment.
