Gifting encourages overconsumption right? How do you find products that have been made with the planet in mind and don't go against what you stand for?
Gifting sustainable fashion is a great way to give someone something unique to add to their wardrobe whilst reducing your (and their) environmental footprint. The fashion industry is known to be one of the most polluting industries worldwide. ‘Approximately 60% of fast fashion items are known to be constructed with plastic based fabrics.’ These materials significantly contribute to the global plastic pollution crisis over the course of their life cycle. Further research has also demonstrated that ‘the average person only wears 20% of their clothes, 80% of the time.’ With such a damaging effect on the environment from fabric production and only 20% of peoples wardrobes being worn, it is imperative that the industry makes a sustainable shift.
All our products have been made from pre-loved fabrics, hand-crafted by seamstresses in London, and have their own stories to tell. Here are our favourite pieces to get from our website that prove exciting, sustainable fashion is just a click away:
