To be Fair Trade Certified means the people in the brands supply chain are being treated and paid fairly. The Fair Trade organization is a leading and respected establishment in sustainable development and corporate social responsibility that works closely on the ground with brands and their suppliers to make certain that safe conditions, environmental protection, and the empowerment of communities is prioritized.
Vegan goods are completely free of any animal products and byproducts. We also ensure that these products do not harm or impact the environment, therefore we source either plant-based or biofabricated vegan items only.
Some or all parts of these products are made or crafted by hand. They typically take longer to make, are produced by highly-skilled artisans, and usually limited edition.
These brands have increased visibility into their supply chain and disclose that information to their consumers. They know who their suppliers are, what conditions their workers are in, and how much they’re getting paid.
We are committed to championing businesses started by women. The exceptional women who have founded these brands are solving real problems in the fashion industry and providing meaningful solutions, all while creating beautiful products.
There is an underrepresentation and lack of diversity in fashion that we find problematic. These brands are owned by those that bring incredible power to diversity and make fashion exponentially better with their unique creativity.
These brands have small outputs in order to minimize their production waste and impact on the environment. They are able to manage their supply chain efficiently and often design and develop limited edition products.
These products are made from either organic, recycled, deadstock, and/or non-toxic dyed materials. Organic means they have not been treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, bleach, formaldehyde, and GMOS. Recycled fabrics are made from post-industrial and post-consumer waste. Deadstock fabrics are from products which did not sell or were overproduced. Non-toxic dyes are either plant-based or do not contain harmful chemicals.
