TU&TU is a contemporary eco-fashion brand standing outside the fast-fashion concept. It upholds a people-centered philosophy, in which the individual is not a passive consumer but a person with a vision whose choices generate changes and new values. TU&TU encourages ethical consumption by offering high-quality stylish yet durable garments made of fabrics with low environmental impact that can take a lot of wear and tear before eventually being recycled once more. TU&TU is envisioned and produced entirely in Italy. Every step of the manufacture process is supervised to protect workers from exploitation and potentially health hazardous procedure.
