Timeless organic clothing made in Peru

Hello! I’d like to introduce you to this conscious fashion brand 100% made in Peru, Fair Indigo.

This brand seems genuinely interested to make a positive change in the fashion industry. Their journey towards sustainability starts with the use of good quality fibers such as organic Peruvian Pima cotton. For those of you, who like me did not know what actually Pima cotton means, it is a variety of cotton which is significantly softer, stronger, and longer-lasting that other cottons and most surprisingly, at least to me, it represents only 2% of the total cotton produced worldwide!

This cotton used by Fair Indigo is grown on two family farms and harvested with care by hand, you can visit their website if you are curios to know more about the story of these farmers!

Producing good quality garments for sure goes hand in hand with supporting a more sustainable future: if you see things from the end-user perspective it is way better for our pockets to buy fewer long-lasting items rather than keep wasting money on fast fashion pieces that get disposed after just the first time they are worn.

This principle is clearly reflected in their collection: all the garments are very versatile and can be worn in many different occasions. I have been really impressed by one item in particular, a reversible wrap dress wrap that can be worn two ways, with a high or low neckline, plus it comes with pockets that function perfectly whichever way you’re wearing the dress. I think it is very cool 🙂

Worth to mention that Fair Indigo cares about the social environment of its workers and they commit to pay fair living wages to the local staff.

Hope you get inspired to browse and shop their collection, I am attaching here the picture of this amazing reversible dress that I am about to buy 🙂

Loungewear sustainable brand

Hello! I came across this brand, ThokkThokk, a German sustainable fashion label, and I think it is worth keeping it in the radar for your next purchase of loungewear.

They got GOTS certified in 2014, which means the garments they produce contain at least 70% of organic fibers (actually there are 2 levels of GOTS certification: to get the label grade ‘organic’ products must contain a minimum of 95% certified organic fibers whereas a product with the label grade ‘made with organic’ must contain a minimum of 70% certified organic fibers).

They claim to use eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton, tencel and recycled plastic so they make an effort to reduce climate impact and limit the amount of chemicals, water and wastewater used in production.

Another thing on the positive side is that they seem to care a lot about traceability: in their website you can find information on where their manufacturer are based and what part of the production process are they taking care of.

There is also an highlighted commitment to actively fight child labor: they have an ongoing collaboration with Indian NGO SAVE, with the mission to combating child labor in the textile industry and promoting the rights of women and workers. SAVE stands for Social Awareness and Voluntary Education. The 121-member organization together with over 600 volunteers for the rights of women and workers and the prevention of child labor in the Indian textile industry.

Overall I guess deserves the attention of a buyer who is sensitive to ethical fashion. Their online shop is available in German and English and they ship worldwide, for sure I will give it a try!

Hope you like my post, feel free to get in touch for suggestions or feedback!

Thanks!
