Om os


    Det danske premium-mærke VER de TERRE har siden 1993 designet børnetøjsbeklædning. Mærket blev grundlagt af Karin Brandt, som stadig ejer og driver forretningen fra kontoret i Charlottenlund. Med uddannelse fra Koldings Designskole og La Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisiènne har Karin en stærk faglig designbaggrund og æstetik, og det var den der drev hende, da hun i begyndelsen af 90’erne måtte sande, at pæne, klassiske flyverdragter til børn var en mangelvare. Overtøj er en stor investering for børnefamilier og derfor er god kvalitet afgørende, men i Karins univers kan kvalitet godt kombineres med klassisk pæn og høj æstetik. Og så kan man jo altid tilsætte en sjov hue eller et par farverige vanter.

    Med visionen for sine produkter på plads blev VER de TERRE en realitet, og det der startede som enkeltstyksproduktioner til egne børn spredte sig hurtigt til omgangskredsen og snart var der efterspørgsel fra nær og fjern. Produktionen foregik i begyndelsen på systuer i København og siden Nordjylland, men i takt med den stigende interesse blev det vigtigt at søge produktionspartnere uden for landets grænser med større kapacitet samt mere erfaring og speciale inden for teknisk overtøj for at sikre den højest mulige kvalitet.

    VER de TERRE drives i dag fortsat ud fra den kendte stærke designprofil og ansvarlige principper omkring produktionsforhold og kvalitet – til glæde for endnu flere børn og deres familier.

    All VER de TERRE products undergo a vast number of processes before becoming the products that you and your children love; processes taking place in various parts of the World and sending materials and products on a journey through many skilled and cherished hands. VER de TERRE recognize the affect and the responsibility that we have towards all people handling our products in any part of the journey, and we wish to engage with them in a responsible, decent, and ethical manner.

    Therefore, we carefully apply and promote the VER de TERRE values and principles throughout our supply chain to continuously improve conditions and advance the know-how and mindsets of all our partners.  

    The VER de TERRE values and principles are inspired by the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact. These principles cover 4 areas – Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-Corruption – and are derived from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the UN Convention against Corruption.
