Larisa Pitkevich
Founder & CEO, t7berlin

Larisa is founder & CEO of t7berlin, a multiple award-winning sustainable 3D knitwear brand. She has over 20 years professional and management experience in the textile industry, working for world leading brands.

In 2019 she founded t7berlin with a mission to offer a true sustainable alternative to the fast fashion. Not only are all the products are made using a zero waste manufacturing process, but the dedication to sustainability goes beyond manufacturing – all products are plastic-free and made from mulesing-free certified natural yarns only (which are by nature 100% biodegradable and a part of a circular process). Everything is sourced exclusively from animal welfare farming. Everything from yarn to labels is locally produced within EU and has short delivery routes to minimise CO2 emission at least by 10. Further, this is also a promise to support local economies and provide fair working conditions and salaries to the skilled fabric workers and craft a better future for everybody.

She has two masters degrees: in textile engineering and international business administration.
