ARMEDANGELS began in Cologne, Germany as a means of linking temporary street fashion with a sustainable lifestyle. Local street artists lent the graphics, and Armed Angels provided the organic t-shirts.
ARMEDANGELS has a three-pronged philosophy. Reduce impact by using organic cotton and low impact shipping. Incorporate Fairtrade practices from the harvesting to manufacturing. And include a give-back component to a program called Pratham that trains women in India to be teachers and provides school materials for them to educate local children.
