Human and Animal rights
Natural fibers that have been grown free of pesticides and other toxic materials, bamboo is a really great textile to use, it is a natural antibacterial and does not need the use of harmful pesticides to grow, thus preserving the health of humans and the environment.
Products that have been made without the use of leather or animal tissue products. Examples are shoes and bags made from “vegetal leather” using Amazonian rubber instead of animal skins or other recycled or man-made materials.
Recycled Upcycled Reclaimed
Anything including leather products that has been made from already existing materials, fabrics, metals or fibers. These are often reclaimed from previously made clothing accessories and wood, then reworked into new ones. Fibers can also be re-purposed from pre-existing fabric, re-spun and re-used for new garments.
Ethical fashion is a product or garment made with respect for people and the environment. Although there are existing certifications for Organic and Fair Trade, this may include companies producing locally or on small scales in developed countries.
Products that have been crafted using artisan skills such as embroidery, which preserve the perpetuation of ancestral and cultural traditions, therefore helping to preserve the heritage of a specific culture.
