Hey @katiebkung! Awesome thanks for this. Sustainable is the future!
Apps like Spocket have some clothing items that are ethically sourced. They can be accessed by simply using the filter "Ethically sourced", which can be found on the app's catalog.
It'd be awesome though to add more sustainable items on the app's catalog though.
Thanks for sharing this list of resources, Katie! I also have a digital product called The Fabric Souring Kit that provides a list of my top 10 sustainable fabric suppliers: https://factory45.lpages.co/fabric-sourcing-kit/ My top two are Kendor in British Columbia and Laguna Fabrics in Los Angeles : )
Common Objective is an amazing and vibrant online community to connect folks from across the sustainable fashion ecosystem. It's definitely worth joining, especially since they've opened a lot of their content due to COVID:
They have very good supplier search features, as well as educational resources on the most sustainable fiber options.
Hi @katiebkung and all,
We're loving this thread! Being sustainable in this era is an absolute must, so it's great to have these resources.
We sustainably source our materials, use eco-friendly inks, and a water-free printing process. Our facility is completely gas-free as well! All of our fabric offcuts are saved and sent out to customers who can reuse them, rather than sending them to landfills.
Everything is handmade to order in one facility, which means it's not being transported from place to place. No third parties, no cheap labor. We only make garments and items when they're ordered, so we don't have any excess.
Green is the way forward, so let us know if we can help!
