A Year Of Ethical Fashion: Issue 6

A Year Of Ethical Fashion is an ongoing series of monthly round-up posts where I share my ethical fashion finds as I work towards a more conscious wardrobe in 2017.
Issue 6 features Proud Mary, Kowtow, Filanthropik Threads and Conrado
"There is a great need for the introduction of new values in our society... where slower can be faster, and where less can be more." - Gaylord Nelson

Week 21: Proud Mary
Featured by the likes of Vogue, Coveteur and Refinery 29,  Proud Mary Global Textiles bridges the gap between fair-trade and on-trend fashion and design. They are known for their beautiful, modern and well-made apparel, home decor and personal accessories that preserve authentic product techniques and expand market access for artisans from over 10 countries globally. You can find them in boutiques across the US, Europe and Japan and online.

You can connect with Proud Mary oInstagram, Pinterest and Twitter.

Week 22: Kowtow
New Zealand brand Kowtow Clothing produces beautiful minimalist pieces with a touch of androgyny, thanks to their clever cuts and take on volume. Recognizing the imbalance in standards of living throughout the world fuelled by our continual shortchanging and exploitation of labour in developing countries, Kowtow only produces fairtrade, organic clothing that is ethically and sustainably made from seed to garment.

You can connect with Kowtow on FacebookInstagram, Pinterest and Twitter.

Filanthropik Threads is fashion with a conscience, purchasing and selling handmade sandals, apparel and accessories made by Guatemalan artisans at a fair price and donating part of their proceeds to organizations that work to alleviate the pains of poverty in the land. When you buy from Filanthropik, you are supporting an ethical cause and adding to the tapestry woven by the threads of humanity
You can connect with Filanthropik Threads on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

Week 20: Conrado
Conrado offers city-to-beach inspired apparel described as "New England meets the Tropics with the effortless California vibe". Designer Angela Sisal grew up in the Philippines in her family's textile factory and now shuttles between SF, Martha's Vineyard and Manila. Using only deadstock fabric sourced from her travels, all her styles are limited in quantity and timeless and transitional while remaining affordable.

You can connect with Conrado on Instagram.
