Everlane on Fashionhedge Ethical Fashion Shopping Directory

Everlane is one of the pioneers of transparent supply chain fashion. With a startupy work philosophy and a clear business model, the California-based apparel retailer has become one of the biggest names in ethical fashion. With a direct-to-consumer model and a focus on simple, timeless designs, the company navigates the worlds of mainstream and conscious fashion, because, who said that they were mutually exclusive?

Why is this ethical fashion?

In every Everlane product page, you will see a breakdown of the product’s cost, so you know exactly how much of the final price goes to the company and to pay for transportation, materials and labor. This very simple, but yet powerful piece of information is a great example of transparency. Even when those numbers don’t really tell you anything by themselves (and there is not a third party certifying their accuracy), information is a luxury that allows us to get a clearer picture and, with the help of other sources, can help us assess whether the price we are being charged is fair or not.

They also disclose a lot of information about the factories in which their products are made, check out the Tee and Sweatshirt Factory and The Shoe Factory.

Aside from the great level of transparency and simple designs, we like the fact that Everlane is just a good business, they don’t claim to be saving poor villages  or donate money to X and Y cause, they are just making products the best way they can.

fertha boutique

http://www.fertha.com
London, Notting Hill, 36 Hereford Road, W2 5AJ, London

fertha is a socially conscious boutique supporting a variety of charities, stocking carefully selected clothes and accessories for women and men alongside trinkets for the home. fertha seeks to re-route the supply chain of the clothing industry by utilising garments that already exist, all sourced from charity donations, in turn creating an additional and increased revenue stream for the charities involved.

At the core of fertha is the mission to turn mass-production shopping on its fashionista head, changing the life cycle of clothes and the way people think about shopping forever.

fertha houses multiple UK charities together under one roof, re-defining the idea of the current high street charity shop – enabling charities not only to receive an increase on their current price points but providing them with a wider marketplace to target consumers as concession brands.

 

Why is this company ethical?

fertha strives to extend the lifecycle of garments which have already been produced, with the aim of replacing purchases of newly produced items for second hand pieces. In turn reducing the negative connotations on the environment which result from the manufacturing of mass produced garments.

fertha believes that there is a place for the production sustainable garments made in an ethical way, and we also believes that if more people replaced even just a few of their new purchases with items bought from fertha or charity shops, it would help make the world a better place in so many ways.
