MARTAN is a circular fashion brand that turns waste textiles from the luxury hotel industry into spectacular, colourful and surprising outfits. Investigating where ready-to-wear meets art and sustainability in fashion becomes self-evident.

Douwe de Boer graduated cum-laude from ArtEZ University of the Arts and is co-creative director to MARTAN. As head of the atelier his main focus is on design and creative development.
