The driving force behind Clean & Unique is Roosmarie Ruigrok. She is a sustainable fashion & textile expert pur sang with more than thirty years of experience in this field. She knows exactly how the fashion industry works and has a great network of national and international contacts.

Roosmarie supplied specially designed corporate fashion to well recognized compagnies like Hema, Philips, ABN AMRO, Hotelplan and the Metropolitan Orchestra, to just name a few. Promax designed and made the exclusive high-end corporate fashion in it's own atelier in the Netherlands.
After selling her company, she worked for Amnesty International, Fair Wear Foundation, as a CSR consultant for the Elsewear Foundation (Green is the new black) and Fairtrade Netherlands and Belgium as cottonmanager. In 2013 she brought after the collaps of Rana Plaza the worldwide movement Fashion Revolution to the Netherlands. In 2023 she finalized the European Horizon2020 Reflowproject that seeked to understand and transformed urban material flows and co-create and test regenerative solutions at business, governance, and citizen levels to create a resilient circular economy for the City of Amsterdam.
