Welcome to 2019 – the year we celebrate fashion becoming more sustainable than ever before! It truly feels like an increasing number of brands are getting on the ethical train, and every week we’re discovering more.
So here’s our pick for January, these brands look good and do good and get a great big tick from us!
Sea Bones x Salt Gypsy Surfsuit – Ships Internationally
Salt Gypsy is a women’s surfwear brand from Byron Bay – the spiritual home of Australia’s eco-conscious surfing community. These gorgeous, sun-smart designs are all made from 100% recycled nylon, helping to reduce plastic waste in our precious oceans.
Wool Bomber in Yellow – Ships internationally
British streetwear brand Christopher Raeburn makes an art out of upcycling. This is a fashion-forward brand for men and women that creates sharp looks from military surplus, with materials that include 1950s Airforce silk maps, and Danish military wool blankets. It also offers free repairs so you can take care of your precious investment pieces.
Conjunction Shirt – Ships to United States
On the face of it, this brand new label only sells one thing – white shirts. But look at the detail and you see a full range of clever tailoring, creative cuts and details that mean there’s a shape and style to suit everyone. All Grammar’s shirts are made from ethically sourced 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton and produced in small batches in New York city.
As always there are some brands that you’ve searched for that don’t meet your expectations when it comes to keeping planet, people and animals safe. These are the brands we rate Not Good Enough.
