Our Definition

Sustainable fashion is built with care. Made thoughtfully, consciously and with high-quality materials, it will withstand time and wear. It will do no harm to the hands that made it. From design to factory to hanger, it has nothing to hide. It’s impact on the planet is minimal, and thus means the world.

Craftsmanship

Handcraft techniques, quality garment construction, and detail. Valuing the design process understanding the meaning of slow-fashion as well as the time it takes to create high quality garments that will last a lifetime.

Organic/Natural

Using natural fibers and organic when possible, meaning the fibers can biodegrade and were not grown or treated with pesticides and/or other toxic chemicals.

Charitable

Value brands and companies that give back to different social and environmental causes.

Recycled/Upcycled

Using recycled, upcycled, and vintage/deadstock fabrics. Giving materials a second life (or even third or fourth life!) and utilizing any materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfills.

Fair-trade

Protecting worker rights and ensuring garment workers are given fair wages. Ensuring that products are made under safe and fair conditions and that the overall production cycle is transparent.

Cruelty free

Clothes are not made from animals that are exploited and treated inhumanely, products are not tested on animals.

Supporting Local Community

Aspects of the garment’s lifecycle from supply chain to production are based locally in relation to where designer is based, in order to help support the local economy. We support local talent from around the world and value communities as stakeholders.
