Mavolu - Germany

image40

MAVOLU is an online shop for fashion & accessories that are both sustainable and innovative, featuring items made from banana fibre, Piñatex, peace silk, and many other innovative products. Of course, the use of innovative materials isn’t the only answer to a more sustainable fashion industry. However, choosing a low impact material as the base of a product is certainly a step into the right direction. Since the fibre creation is at the very beginning of the supply chain, it can either have a negative or positive impact on all further stages of the production process and user phase – for example in terms of human toxicity for farmers, weavers and even consumers. So if a sustainable fibre choice is made to begin with, then that's already contributing a lot towards a better future in fashion.

The products that are offered on MAVOLU all have a unique selling point and show very different approaches towards a more conscious consumption. In order to keep things simple, a range of different icons can be used to navigate through the sustainability criteria, giving you the option to choose those products that are most related to your own values.

Polar Society

At Polar Society, we have a passion to create something with meaning. Our clothing line can be described as ‘fashion with a cause’. We are all immigrants and first generation Americans with a can-do mentality. Together, we hope to make a great difference while creating fashion with a purpose. We created an environmentally – conscious clothing brand that is not only fashion forward, but also allows us to improve the environment – with your help. We design and sell outfits made only with recyclable materials (like cotton) while donating 10% of our proceeds to organizations that support polar bear conservation and habitat preservation. We’ve learned some of the harsh truths about climate change and the way the ecosystem suffers at the hands of humans. Together, we would like to play a role in eradicating some of this suffering by helping to preserve the natural habitat of polar bears. We learned that the polar bears in the Arctic are slowly becoming extinct due to rising global temperatures. Glaciers and icebergs are melting at an exponential rate, leaving us with increasing sea levels, and very limited movement for the polar bears that inhabit the area. In fact, the lack of solid ground has made it virtually impossible for the polar bears to survive! With this shocking realization, we decided to put all of our energy into helping these vulnerable animals by donating a part of our profit to organizations that support polar  bear conservation and habitat preservation.

Woron

image46

WORON. is #vegan #crueltyfree & #sustainable. Award winning underwear made to empower women to feel sexy in their natural shape. Made by 👯 for women 💕Clean and with style both in look and in our conscience is what we strive for. We’ve heard the sentence ‘Less is More’ said a thousand times, but it really is true.

Our inspiration comes from our 3 keywords: Sustainable Fashion Essentials. This is the essence that we kept coming back to when we were still in the planning stages and brainstorming our ideas for our brand. We have a very minimalistic Scandinavian approach and what we find fascinating, is that something so simple and clean can be so attractive. We embrace Slow Fashion as the core of our designing process. This is also the message that we want to get across, that less definitely can be more.

Our goal is to find that perfect balance between producing a good quality product which is fashionable and staying true to our moral compass. 

There is never any need to compromise, especially when we keep the process clean, transparent and simple. By limiting our collection to it’s essence, we are able to put the right amount of focus and thought in to each part of the production and all the way to the customer’s wardrobe.

The whole cycle from production, transport, packaging and all the way to the fabric touching your skin should cause as little stress as possible. 

Our mission is to create essentials that are beautiful yet comfortable and will have longevity, so that you won't have to throw out your favourite garment every few months to stay chic.

We strive to work with small teams of makers who benefit from our collaborations and receive great work conditions and wages.

Our long term vision is to help establish hundreds of small businesses/co-ops by developing new products and new collaborations.

I moved to Bali many years ago to start a fair trade label.

I immersed myself in Balinese and Indonesian cultures. 

This is not about a trend, it is about making real changes.

OhSevenDays

_OhSevenDays offers charismatic yet understated weekday staples made from reclaimed materials. Monday to Sunday dressing made from ethical beginnings and sustainable endings. 

_'Oh' Sustainability: At OhSevenDays we promote the idea of 'slow fashion' and want to contribute to the concept of 'The Power of Circularity'. We produce our garments with sustainability in mind and therefore source materials from 'runoff' fabric rolls. 

_'Oh' Seven Pieces: The thriving trend of low quality, fast fashion is becoming evermore disturbing. Fashion labels are turning out new stock on an hourly basis to feed our ever-growing consumerist culture. In the effort to contradict these damaging mainstream practices, we create high quality, compact collections, consisting of just 7 pieces per season. It's our belief that less is indeed more! Not only will reducing choice help social and environmental change within the textile industry, but it might also be critical to your health and wellbeing.

_'Oh' Transparency: Not only are we cutting down and slowing down, but we also believe in brand transparency. It is our aim to ensure our customers know where their garment originates and why it's priced the way it is. Because we use reclaimed textiles, we are able to keep our costs lower than competitor designer labels. Also, we want to give our customers a behind the scenes view of the brand's journey, all the way from stitch to store.

upparel

image58

It’s call Fair Fashion. Period. “It’s about fashion, the environment and people.”

Fashion can be different. It can be smart. It can be globally conscious. And, It can be your style.

These are the ethos that inspired Delphine Gennisson to create Upparel, a U.S. clothing brand that aims to change the way we think about fashion. The French-born fashionista and Colorado-based wardrobe designer built Upparel to be the antithesis of the rising fast fashion industry requiring chemicals and water to make clothing OR NOT... with so much fabrics unwanted... Delphine Explains: “Most of the fabrics that we use for our garments and collections eliminate waste through upcycling process. Those fabrics have first, been made for retailers but for some reasons have been left behind. Because they ordered too much, because it won’t be “on trend” for the next season or because the shade of pink wasn’t what they were hoping for… those fabrics become purely waste unless they are repurposed by companies like Upparel.  Shocked by the pollution, chemicals, waste and human rights abuses of the $2.5 trillion apparel industry, we want to build a new kind of principles when it comes to baby, children, and women clothing, and to make better-quality, longer-lasting clothing and accessories.”Her company, Upparel, is also on the mission to be ZERO WASTE using every single scrap of fabric to make purses, hair accessories or note books. In addition, the company ensures working conditions are healthier for its employees in India and that they’re paid a fair, living wage, in addition to providing healthcare, childcare and other benefits.

Waves Flip Flops

image59

It took us awhile but we finally created the perfect pair of flip flops. They are sustainable, durable, and friendly to the environment. Waves is inspired by the ocean so it was important for us to ensure that we do not leave a negative impact on the environment.

Waves flip flops are made from premium grade natural rubber, tapped directly from rubber trees in Sri Lanka. We work with master artisans and expert rubber tappers to create each pair of flip flops. We ensure all of our flip flops are ethically produced, providing fair wages and opportunities for all of our employees that help create every pair.

How often do you think about what your flip flops are made of? Instead of using plastic or other toxic materials that degrade over time, we decided to make our flip flops out of eco-friendly natural rubber. It’s mixed with a latex compound that makes it incredibly elastic and super spongy. It’s also extremely light-weight with a silky-smooth texture. Because of its elasticity, our natural rubber flip flops actually mold to each foot. A perfect combination of comfort and firmness, these natural rubber flip flops conform to the unique curves of your feet so you get targeted support right where you need it.

We urge you to put our flip flops to the test. Run on sand, in the ocean and through the forest. Waves flip flops are designed to last through every adventure for many years of exploration.
