The key look of the ILSE JACOBSEN HORNBÆK collection embraces relaxed luxury and smart casuals related closely to the Scandinavian lifestyle. Our roots are deeply grounded in Hornbæk, famous for the relaxing atmosphere around its small harbour, wide sandy beaches and dunes. Inspired by nature, we design ready to wear, rub&rain, bags and accessories in a fine balance between Scandinavian lifestyle, Danish design and modern urban living.
We are in the process of converting our energy consumption to the use of sustainable ressources. As of October 1st, 2016, all of our 200 employees in Danish locations are working with green energy and we are expecting to save the environment approximately 400 MW, which can be compared to what one of the large windmills can produce in an entire year. Our purpose is to protect the environment and to promote the production of and investment in green energy.
We strive to create transparency in what we do and are in the process of integrating a ‘zero waste’ policy. We believe in the idea that one man’s trash can easily be another man’s treasure, so we have a great collaboration with Danish Red Cross, to whom we donate products that we are no longer able to use.
Some of these products are sent to disaster areas around the world, where people are in urgent need of clothing. The remaining products become part of the Danish Red Cross recycling programme. This is one small step towards protecting the planet as well as helping people.
