The driving force behind Clean & Unique is Roosmarie Ruigrok. She is a sustainable fashion expert with more than thirty years of experience in the field of fashion. She knows exactly how the fashion industry works and has a great network of national and international contacts.
As a textile buyer, Roosmarie discovered her passion for establishing fair production- and supply chains. At the age of 28, she started her own company, Promax Corporate Fashion, to work on this vision. Roosmarie supplied specially designed corporate fashion to well recognized compagnies like Hema, Philips, RABOBank, Hotelplan and the Metropolitan Orchestra, to name a few. She designed and manufactured the exclusive high-end corporate fashion in her own atelier.
