3 Eco-Friendly Fashioin designers
While cruising through a magazine, I was looking at articles on clothing and kept reading about designers who were making strides to become more Eco-friendly or completely sustainable. These are 3 that stuck out to me:
1. Hessnatur – A German Eco-ethical clothing company. Their goal is to be 100% organic in everything they make. All of their pure cotton is 100% organic. The availability of the other luxurious, natural fibers they use in organic quality is still limited. 20-55% of their range in these fabrics is organic. However, everything they make is pure and natural. Made by people whose human rights are respected.
Hessnatur offers eco-friendly clothes for the whole family. Make a statement and change your tee and help change the world. A simple tee shirt can change the world.
2. Zoe & Zac – Created to democratize green fashion by making it affordable and accessible, and enabling more people to participate in sustainable living. Zoe & Zac products are made from Eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton and linen, natural hemp, jute, recycled rubber, and water-based glues. The packaging is Eco-smart too, with 100 percent recycled shoe boxes printed with soy-based inks.
Zoe & Zac have shoes for women and girls and the entire collection is under $30.
3. Bodkin – A collection designed in accordance with principles of sustainability in materials and production methods. Manufactured in New York City using organic cotton and organic wool and artisanal vegetable dyes along with innovative fibers such as recycled-PET nylon, cellulosic fibers, and kapok, Bodkin consists of understatedly classic yet forward-thinking pieces that reconcile style with utility and transparency, supporting and encouraging both traditional craft and environmentally beneficial technologies of the future.
Bodkin offers wonderfully sustainable clothing for women.
