Starting as a textile buyer, Roosmarie Ruigrok discovered her passion in fair supply chains. After selling her own company, Promax Corporate Fashion, she worked at Amnesty International, Fair Wear Foundation and as CSR consultance at Elsewear Foundation, known by “Green is the new black. In 2007 Roosmarie founded Clean & Unique. A foundation that helped small brands and starters in fashion to learn more about sustainability. Next to this foundation, Roosmarie worked for Fairtrade as Cotton manager in The Netherlands & Belgium. Today Clean & Unique transformed into an agent for change to create more awareness about sustainability in fashion, workwear & textiles by giving advises, training, workshops, inspiration sessions and organizing events.
