Creating an ecosystem for animal protection
This movement is more than a luxury fashion brand. To achieve the goal of providing transformational experiences and animal and climate protection we created an ecosystem that innovates and excites around all critical aspects. At the core is the JOSEFIN LILJEQVIST brand focused on fashion. Behind the scenes is Responsible Systems providing the technological innovations that allow the transformation of the entire fashion industry towards more animal protection and traceability. This creates a holistic sustainable luxury approach that transforms the entire industry beyond our own brand.
Facts on why improved animal welfare is key
73 % of global deforestation
73 % of global deforestation is driven by farming livestock. Causing natural habitats to disappear and species to be extinct.
50% of global land area
Human livestock use 50% of global liveble land area: more GHG emissions than the automotive industry. Cities take up 1%.
Unethical animal supply chains create 14,5% of global GHG emissions. By improving global animal protection our goal is to cut the industrial farming industry in half. Besides the clear ethical aspect, it would lower global GHG emissions by 8 %.
14,5 % of global GHG emission
All modern pandemics have been zoonoses: diseases jumping from non-humans to humans.
Powered by Purpose
Join the movement for global animal protection with Josefin Liljeqvist, a brand carefully created as a mission-driven ecosystem to make a positive impact, one sale at a time. From sourcing from suppliers who prioritize animal welfare to being part of creating frameworks to support animal protection in our practices and beyond - every aspect of our brand is dedicated to our mission.
The Josefin Liljeqvist brand is built on the foundation of our proprietary traceability software, Responsible Systems. Allowing us to not only trace the journey of each product from source to client and beyond, but to also reverse engineer the design process to ensure the highest animal protection in each design. This foundation ensures not only the highest standards of animal welfare and sustainability but enabling full circularity using each design´s unique Digital ID, the RSiD - a first in the industry. This innovation was first implemented in our development and creation of the world's first traceable leather footwear. Our passion for impact, animal welfare, and traceability is matched only by our commitment to creativity and art. Our unique combination of technology, impact, and art creates a luxurious experience where beauty and purpose come together.
We invite you to discover what’s beyond.
Meet the founder
At the age of 11, Josefin began to engage herself in working for WWF to raise awareness for animals. She is an educated fashion and footwear designer who started her journey with footwear in her family's shoe boutique in Uppsala, Sweden at the age of 16 (Sweden´s oldest shoe shop) As of late 2015, she has focused her time on improving animal protection and creating awareness around the subject. Her brand, under her own name, inspires people to make a difference in the world by protecting animals and encouraging them to discover what is beyond today's limits. It's a fusion of creativity, technology, craftsmanship, and artistry, applying much-needed change by including animals and their well-being in the climate discussion using the fashion industry. Josefin founded her company from an understanding of the lack of animal welfare in the UN Global Goals and in the climate debate, and after repeatedly being told by passers-by on the street that "animals are not important for the world" while working for WWF.
A purposeful movement
