5 Fair fashion brands that might steal your heart

5 Fair fashion brands that might steal your heart

Today was the first day of Fashion revolution week. Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability, and ethics in the fashion industry. We want to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.

Much of the global fashion industry is opaque, exploitative and environmentally damaging and desperately needs revolutionary change. I love fashion, but I don’t want my clothes to come at the cost of people or our planet.

I present you 5 amazing, beautiful and fair fashion brands that might steal your heart.

 

Armedangels is one of the more sustainable fashion brands. Armedangels mainly uses more sustainable materials. Furthermore, its entire collection is GOTS certified. The brand is also a member of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF), which shows it is taking the improvement of labour conditions in low wage countries seriously. There are some improvements to be made, such as publishing its packaging and waste material footprints.

“It takes a lot of sweat and time to produce clothes as many people are involved in this long process. It is our responsibility to make sure that every single one of them works under fair conditions. No matter if they are a cotton farmer in India, a sewer in Turkey or a designer in Germany. We are far from perfect. We just want to do the right thing. Step by step, every day. Organizations like Fairtrade or Fair Wear Foundation help us to implement our high standards.”
