kid’s fashion in one place, it makes it easier to shop as well. Boden has been around for
nearly 30 years and mixes style and sustainability. It also produces tailored workwear, which
lacks in the sustainable fashion brands otherwise. Using sustainable cotton and responsibly
sourced materials, the result is a line of bold and beautiful apparel for every woman’s closet.
We especially love their skirts and dresses.

4. Amour Vert

Basics, flattering shapes and sustainable. Easily the best trio. Their pieces are made in
limited quantities to ensure the highest production standards and to eliminate any excess
waste. And, locally- few miles away from their San Fran office. They source fibres from all
over the world and focuse on choosing sustainable options like organic cotton, Cupro and
Tencel. Their designs range from basics to more stylish pieces and there also make sneakers,
handbags and accessories. With all that, the company plants a tree for every tee that’s
purchased, with over 220,000 trees planted so far in association with American Forests. You
can even opt to have an extra tree planted for $1.
5. Made Trade
Based in US
Made Trade is an ethical fashion brand that makes clothing, accessories and home
furnishings and furniture as well. Not only they are affordable but they have some great
designs in a lot of sizes as well. They use organic cotton and bamboo and their clothes are
perfect for everything from the office to a day out with a friend. Made Trade practices fair
trade and champions POC owned brands. It also has many vegan products. And uses faux
leather such as pinatex or mushroom leather to extend eco-fashion.
Sustainable fashion brands are growing at a fast-speed yet many do know to adhere to
transparency or produce larger sizes or ensure accountability when it comes to their workers.
These brands, on the other hand, do all that and much more. All of them are affordable,
produce a variety of designs, employ women and pay fair-wages. At ADAU we champion
not only sustainable products but ethical processes and practices. And, much like these
brands we not only source sustainable fabrics but also ensure ethical practices.
