T by Dem -knowing what you wear matters.

T by Dem's location is buzzing of creative people and businesses.  You'll find T by Dem next to the AO Glass studio in the beating heart of  Burlington's South End Arts District.   Music and laughter echoes from the garage doors, while locals and visitors gravitate to the warmth and excitement of one of the hottest spots around.  In the spring of 2018, T by Dem expands from small office to a sales- and showroom. 

"The design is very important – to make good-looking clothes that one actually wants to wear.  To be frank, the least environmentally friendly garment is the one that no one wants to wear…   So, our clothing is basic, timeless, and of very good quality.  We are happy that our customers call us and tell us that a t-shirt they bought 5 years ago, or 10, or even from our very beginning, is still in use, even a favorite, and hasn’t fallen apart, or gone out of fashion." 

"We work together to create clothes that you will want to wear, produced rightly: from the organic cotton seed through fair wages, to the ready garment.  Knowing what you wear matters."


Tucked away in a quiet street in the industrial setting on Ringön, a creative Gothenburg hub, By Dem Sweden is housed in a converted warehouse along with 10 other companies ranging from electric driven mini taxi pods to the office of the guy that builds the Ice Hotel up in the North of Sweden every year.   It is an airy place with a great vibe!  The industrial bones of the building is highlighted and in this warm and rustic environment you'll find Annika Axelsson.  

By Dem Sweden is a production company providing a sustainable, transparent, and fair production chain of apparel and textiles.  In 2017, Tove Ohlander of AO Glass in Burlington, Vermont, USA, and Annika Axelson, Founder of By Dem Sweden, joined forces.  On one cold and windy spring day, full of warm and creative conversations, T by Dem saw the light of the day, and here we are.
