Three Ethical Fashion Brands to Check Out this Autumn

Hands up who’s ready for cosy nights in with a hot chocolate and Sunday night Harry Potter? It’s time to dust off your coats and bring back out the scarves and gloves. Halloween and bonfire night are over, and Christmas is on the way.

With the start of each season, I invest in a few key pieces from ethical brands that I know will last for years to come. I no longer buy into fast fashion trends, opting instead to pick out clothing that will go with anything and everything. I still have vintage tops and dresses that I’ve been wearing for well over ten years!

 

Boden

Using ethically made and responsibly sourced materials, Boden focuses on full transparency of their supply chain and works closely with suppliers, building long-term relationships. With brightly coloured detailing and flattering styles, a brand is a great option for a seasonal wardrobe overhaul.

People Tree

People Tree have been a favourite brand of mine for years, particularly for their organic cotton basics and knitwear. Supporting businesses that use traditional skills such as hand weaving, hand knitting or hand embroidery, People Tree create employment in rural areas where work is often scarce. All clothing is dyed using low impact dyes, free from harmful azo chemicals which are frequently used in clothing manufacture.

Will’s Vegan Shoes

Will’s Vegan Shoes use vegan leather created with bio oil sourced from organic cereal crops grown in Northern Europe. All the materials used in deliveries are environmentally friendly, sustainable, can be recycled and are free of plastic packaging. Through investing in renewable energy projects such as wind, hydro, geothermal, solar and biomass, Will’s Vegan Shoes offset their carbon emissions to zero. I wore a pair of their sandals all throughout my holiday to Croatia, the quality of which far surpassed any leather sandals that I’ve owned before. My feet have never been comfier!
