Sustainable & ethical fashion
What is sustainable & ethical fashion?
In a nutshell: sustainable and ethical fashion is an approach towards sourcing, manufacturing, and designing clothes which maximizes the benefits to the fashion industry and society at large, while at the same time minimizing its impact on the environment. The two concepts overlap in ideology, but they each have slightly different concerns, both equally critical to the future of fashion. ( source @ www.sustainablejungle.com )
We believe in slowing down fast fashion and encouraging the reuse, reduce recycle approach. We want to make sure whatever we produce has been made by the highest ethically standards. We want to make sure the workers who sew your clothes are paid appropriately for their time and work and that we save as many natural resources as we can & to ensure that the clothes we make doesn’t support child labour.
We have produced our items with 2 main fabrics, organic Hemp & linen – both have been undyed and in their natural form so there are no harsh chemicals, and no unnecessary water or resources were used on our pieces.
If you think about it we all have 1 planet and we need to make sure we take care of it. Sustainable fashion is the way of the future for your kids and grand-kids, there are lots of ways you can start up a sustainable life style that doesn’t just have to revolve around clothing options. A lot life style choices can include, only shopping at vintage and pre loved stores for home ware, clothes, utensils, installing energy-efficient appliances , hang clothes to dry instead of using the dryer, eat locally, resell and donate items and also drinking from the tap instead of buying bottled water.
So whether your wanting to dive in or just start small sustainability is the way to go!
