My Slow Fashion directory: Ethical and sustainable clothing brands

Lifestyle, Slow-fashion

With the aim of repairing the damage caused by the fast fashion industry, some talented and great spirited brands decided to fight against this harmful industry. They have created the slow fashion movement.

Slow fashion is the new trend, what a trend! It teaches us that we can be stylish while being conscientious. The slow-lifestyle is the opposite of overproduction, unfair wages, and everything which can damage our health and the environment. Cool, isn’t it?

Making this list took me a lifetime. Sending emails, scrutinizing websites, checking the certifications, fabrics, factories, etc. All those details are not detailed!

That’s why I am pleased to share my ethical and sustainable fashion directory with the hopes of making it easier for you.

This list will regularly be updated with new brands.
