Who we are.
Founded by Guido van Onlangs, the idea of Organic People arose from what we believe is a lack of transparency in the apparel industry. If you cannot find where the product comes from or how it is produced? Is it the right party for you to purchase your favourite clothes?
In our opinion not.
“Create the new standard. To create a generation that is as sustainable as possible, it is important to bring the enormous supply & demand in the textile industry back to a circular economy of recycling, second hand & fair. And above all 100% transparent.” That is Organic People’s motto.
Our goal is to convince everyone that we need to make sure that we are going to pass our planet on properly to the next generation and that begins as the items already reveal:
with the basics.
We believe in fair and transparent pricing according to our items. We have nothing to hide and first of all, you have the right to know everything.
Our way of pricing is the following: we want you to be fully informed before you buy your items. Not afterwards.

How we see our way of pricing is the following:
At Organic People we want you to wear your garments with the knowledge that what you wear is made in good conditions and with only the highest standard according; Quality, minimalize environmental footprint, and full transparency.

As a fashion brand we want to give the people who make our clothes the recognition they deserve, they’re the real heroes after all, right? Our core collection is made in Bangladesh to strict people-focused standards. It means:
- Employment is freely chosen
- Living wages are at least 150-200% above the minimum wage.
- The working conditions are safe and hygienic
- Child labour must not be used
- Working hours are not excessive
- No discrimination is practised
- Regular employment is provided
- Harsh or inhuman treatment is prohibited
Our fabrics are environment-oriented and we use organic cotton in all of our apparel. What does that mean? No use of toxic chemicals or GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) or anything else artificial in the farming process, allowing for the health of the soil, ecosystem and people to be preserved. That way, the environmental and social impact is kept to a minimum.
Why we use organic cotton:
- There are no chemicals or pesticides used.
- Organic cotton uses less water – up to 91%.
- It saves us almost 50% of co2, compared to normal cotton.
- And for all beauty lovers! Organic cotton is better for the natural balance of the skin.
Sometimes we use Recycled Polyester:
Our heavyweight hoodies are made from 85% organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester. Why we use some polyester in our items? Because with some recycled polyester is your favourite item more durable than others.
It also creates approximately 75% less CO2 emissions than virgin polyester and it’s more breathable.
Let’s hit you with a hard truth: Over 100.000.000 animals are used for fashion items every year. Yes, that’s a tough number to digest, and we want nothing to do with it.
As well as an ethical and sustainable brand, Organic People is also 100% vegan.
