A Year Of Ethical Fashion: Issue 3

Week 9: MATTER Prints
MATTER Prints is a socially motivated business focusing on affordable luxury, thoughtful design and provenance to create travel wear with stories to tell. Their mission is to foster designer-artisan collaborations, inspire consumers to value provenance and process, and pioneer industry change and sustainability for rural textile communities. Founded in Singapore in 2014 with artisan partners in India and a community that extends all over the globe, they offer free international shipping and easy returns.

Week 10: Another Soul
Voted 'the most comfortable travel shoes' (and I've tried them on my feet to attest to that!), Another Sole Girl is built on a dream to produce superior and refreshingly affordable shoes that prioritizes, with buttery soft EU-complaint leather upper and an ergonomic footbed and durable rubber sole that are biodegradable. As a private social enterprise, the Singaporean founders also donate a meal for every pair shoe to feed a child in South East Asian who would otherwise go hungry.

Week 11: People Tree
A true pioneer and trailblazer in ethical and sustainable fashion, People Tree was the first clothing company in the world to receive the World Fair Trade Organization product mark and the first organization to achieve Global Organic Textile Standard certification on a supply chain entirely in the developing world. When you wear People Tree's contemporary and accessible designs, you look good and feel good knowing that your outfit was made with respect for people and the planet.

P/S: You can learn more about the movement from the book Slow Fashion: Aesthetics Meets Ethics by founder Safia Minney.

Week 12: Make It Good
Make It Good evolved from an Etsy start-up to an independent line of sustainable American-made basics, featuring simple silhouettes with hand-printed details from their small factory in Portland, OR. They believe in sourcing high-quality material locally and handcrafting them in-house into comfortable, everyday wear. 

P/S: Don't miss their small collection of glow-in-the-dark underwear for both men and women!
