Copenhagen Fashion Week Stem Brand Image

Launched in September 2021 by weaver and textile designer Sarah Brunnhuber, Stem is an innovative zero-waste production brand for woven garments.


Stem's weaving, cutting, and sewing system eliminates garment production waste and creates a visual aesthetic that tells a production story. With its experimental approach to zero-waste garments, Stem bridges craft and industry, aiming to disrupt the current cycle of overproduction and overconsumption.

Stem’s philosophy is: Produce better, produce less – buy better, buy less.

Stem also operates through brand collaborations, applying its production technique to pieces designed by both young and established brands, for example GANNI x Stem.

Sarah Brunnhuber was selected as a member of Dazed 100 in 2022, curated the collaborative exhibition ‘Edition1, Take 2 in December 2023, and took part in the AW 2024 Ganni x CPHFW New Talent: ‘Future, Talent, Fabrics’ and the ‘The Power and Purpose of the Next Generation’ panel discussion in January 2024.
