TG Botanical – a clothing line for which technology and nature are in tune
AboutTG Botanical in 2020, when the first lockdown happened. She wanted to returned to her roots and create clothing line for which technology and nature are in tune.For Tetyana Chumak, the creation of this brand is not only an opportunity to keep in touch with her family farmer business, but also a desire to show the whole world that locally produced clothes can and should be environmentally friendly.
For the first time on the international scene, the TG botanical brand was presented on February 3, 2022 as a part of the official schedule of Copenhagen Fashion Week and returned with the Spring-Summer 23 presentation this August.In September, TG Botanical presented the key collection pieces at the Vogue Ukraine x CondeNast event.TG Botanical's first catwalk show was part of the official CPHFW FW23 schedule, where designer Tetyana Chumak became one of the three finalists of the Zalando Sustainability Award.
SustainabilityThe name of the brand speaks for itself – these are clothes from the environment, from botany. In each collection TG Botanical team plays with the elements of nature. This is reflected not only in the use of eco-materials and special herbal dyeing techniques, but also in the textures/patterns of the products.Thanks to the occupation of her family, Tatiana has an opportunity to research technologies for the production of fabrics from nettle, flax, hemp and control the manufacture of products.
This is why TG Botanical items are considered as “live clothing”, because the creation of each piece takes its way from the moment the first sprouts appear on the moist soil of Ukrainian fields to ready-made garments in the brand’s studio.TG Botanical team uses experimental techniques for dyeing fabrics with plant pigments obtained from tansy flowers, acorns, onion husks and coffee beans.
