The future of fashion is slow
We look back on more than 20 years of company history, in which LANIUS has grown constantly in all areas, without losing sight of the three most important maxims.
We love fashion. Owing to the creativity of our design team, new LANIUS collections are created in our Cologne studio twice a year. Feminine, individual and designed with great attention to detail. Our ‘slow fashion’ design is characterised by considered trends and high-quality materials.
We focus on sustainability and ecology: LANIUS is GOTS-certified, a member of the IVN and mainly uses biological materials that are controlled by independent institutes. Out of love and respect for animals, we use mulesing-free wool. Our vegan fashion is certified according to the ‘PETA-Approved Vegan’ logo for cruelty-free clothing.
AND BE RESPONSIBLE
We collaborate responsibly with our production partners – regardless of whether they are major companies or small, family-run enterprises. In choosing them, we attach importance not only to certifications and quality labels but also to personal contact and shared values. Claudia Lanius visits our partners regularly. To guarantee employee welfare, we collaborate only with producers who are certified to the following standards: GOTS certification, SA8000 certification, the BSCI Code of conduct and auditing by the Fair Wear Foundation.

Sustainable & responsible materials
As a GOTS-certified fashion label, we primarily use organic materials that are inspected by independent institutes. These natural raw materials are key for the high-quality fabrics we use to make our LANIUS wardrobe favourites. Intensive R&D work is channelled into each collection to make our choice of fabrics even more sustainable. Read more

Carbon Accounting and Neutrality
We measure, monitor, and actively reduce our emissions
We set an example for climate protection and see ourselves as a fashion label with an unconditional responsibility to act: For us, this means being CO₂-neutral. In cooperation with the experts from ClimatePartner, we determine the CO₂ emissions of our company's business activities at the Cologne location and the production of our entire collection every year and offset them via a climate protection project. Through this carbon offset, we give back to our earth what we take from it elsewhere as a producer and as a fashion label. Partner: ClimatePartner
