Philosophy

LOVE FASHION, THINK ORGANIC AND BE RESPONSIBLE

It all began in 1999 with an idea: to make fashion under fair conditions, create beauty with a good feeling. LANIUS has followed this vision to this day, combining sustainable materials with sophisticated design. Collection after collection.

Love Fashion

We love fashion. Twice a year new LANIUS collections are created by the creativity of our design team in the studio of Cologne. Feminine, individually designed with great attention to detail. Reflected trends and high-quality materials determine the design of our Slow Fashion.

Think Organic

We focus on sustainability and ecology. LANIUS is GOTS-certified and uses materials that are controlled by independent institutes such as CERS and Control Union. Out of love and respect to the animal, we only use mulesing- free wool qualities. Our vegan fashion is certified by the PETA-Approved Vegan Label for pain-free clothing.  

Be Responsible

We take responsibility. Our producers have various certificates which ensure the social standards in the company. These include the GOTS certificate, the SA8000 standard, the WRAP certificate, the BSCI Code of Conduct and the audit by the Fair Wear Foundation. Exceptions are made by small family businesses, which work according to our social standards and which we visit regularly on a regular basis.

"It all began with an idea: to create fashion with respect to losses, creating beauty with a good feeling, that was 1999 and that vision I follow until today."

The founder

Claudia Lanius is the founder and designer behind the brand. Together with her team, she develops the ideas that make the LANIUS collections in the Cologne studio. Claudia Lanius pioneered work as she recognized the signs of the times early on and was looking for fair and responsible producers - with success.
