White Label
Project

We collaborate with the next generation of women change makers to scale their impact, level up their brands and connect to a global community of sustainable design enthusiasts.

Empowering Women through

e-commerce

White Label Project is an online store and community for brands in fashion and design worldwide. Founded by Ann-Kathrin Zotz & Caroline Foerster in 2019, it aims to empower women in e-commerce and challenge unsustainable trade norms such as white labelling. The store offers carefully picked luxury fashion and home design items from over 40 women-led brands worldwide, ranging from Ghana over South Africa to Mexico and India. We work with the new generation of contemporary design entrepreneurs all sharing the same ambition to preserve artisanal traditions by bringing them into a modern design context, generating stable incomes for the crafters behind each product and using natural fibres and sustainable materials.
