30 Ethical and Fashion Forward Brands.

 

I strongly believe that we can help the fashion industry reduce the amount of damage it causes. For example, we can stop buying on impulse from the nearest fast fashion joints and learn how to build a sustainable capsule wardrobe. We can take better care of clothes we already have. We can choose organic or recycled materials or go for vintage. We can support local brands and artisans and all the ethical brands out there that are really trying to make a difference. We can do a lot and still look good, so why not to start today?

Honestly, I feel so excited exploring these new brands and amazing designers that are not only extremely talented but also smart and ethical. They have respect for the workers and they are open about their production process. They use leftover, vintage, eco-friendly, recycled textiles to push fashion forward. So far I found 30 of them and I have to say I am very impressed.

 
Swedish Stockings $ I have to say I had no idea that there is a such a thing as stockings made out of recycled yarn until I found Swedish Stockings. It’s something we buy all the time so why not switch to a more ethical brand and support their effort?
