OUR STORY

Disrupting the sustainable fashion industry, ‘an impossible ambition’ according to 99% of people that I told about this ambition, as a 21-year-old student. A lot of fashion businesses just donate a certain amount of money to large charities and don’t get me wrong, I think that is beautiful. However, I do not believe that this is the right way. At Bigger Picture Clothing we want to go further than that, we want to connect the customer with their impact, by creating a transparency level of 100%. In this way every customer is able to see the exact impact that they have had with their purchase and in this way you are able to spread joy & inspire others.

Our Journey

August 2022

First Pop-up Stand!

We were invited to take a stand on the FeelGood Market at Strijp-S, Eindhoven. We officially created our first offline sales, introduced the Bigger Picture concept to a large number of people and we were able to donate an extra 45.000 liters of clean drinking water! It was a good weekend 😉

Tilburg University Challenge '22

In the beginning of our journey, we were able to win the Tilburg University Challenge. Words can’t describe how much both the funds, advice and support have helped us to develop our concept. In this years’ challenge we were invited to attend the final, not as a candidate, but in an advisory role. It was amazing to hear all about new innovative ideas from young entrepreneurs.  

June 2022

Documentary is live!

Together with filmmaker Tijs and presenter/YouTuber Frank, we went back to The Gambia. We were able to make real and significant impact for a long-term in a sustainable way. We couldn’t be happier than we are with this partnership. Go check it out for yourself and experience a glimpse of Gambian life.

Bigger Picture X All Stars Eindhoven

As we are still developing a new collection, we wanted to try out some new ideas in the meantime. Therefore, we participated in some real fun and innovative collaborations. For example, with Dutch football organization, ‘All Stars Eindhoven’. We designed a custom badge that matches the Bigger Picture style. It was a cool way to spread the Bigger Picture message nationally in the Netherlands.

Gambia 2.0

After our first mission to The Gambia 1 year ago, we were invited to collaborate for a project together with Dutch YouTuber and presenter Frank van der Slot. Frank collected around €15.000 together with his community and we invested it in projects related to education & local sports. A documentary about all the insights and experiences of this journey will be launched soon on Frank’s YouTube channel. We are very happy that we were able to contribute with our knowledge, contacts and understanding of the area. Thanks Frank for all of your great efforts as well! Our brand will be introduced to a large new group of potential members of… The Bigger Picture🤝

A Social Media Freeze

As we entered a period of optimizing current operations, without a lot of new things happening, we started wondering. Why are we posting, just for the sake of posting? What is the use for our community in this? That is when we realized.

We started a social media freeze and announced it on our socials. We will only post useful and valuable content, so as long as we have nothing new to post, we won’t 😉

Time to step up our game & evolve.

We took a little time off, to take a step back and look at the bigger… 😉

Traveling, experiencing new cultures & meeting new people, is a way for us to gain new inspiration for our business. That’s why we took some time off. Our little trips provided us with lots of new ideas, both for projects as for fashion items. We are going to focus even more on the ‘transparency-aspect’ within the strategy. Good things are on their way, we are hyped & you will be too 😉

January 2022

Let's start designing again!

A new year, new energy, new inspiration, let’s make it all come together in a new project/collection! We started designing in the beginning of 2022. The collection requires more unique designs that are closely related to the purpose that will be behind it (psst… something to do with rainforest)

That makes us proud, together we can establish the new world!
