RESPONSIBLE BRAND DIRECTORY
Each brand listed focuses on responsibility in at least one way. Some brands focus more on eco-friendly materials, others on social justice and fair labour, while others on slow, handmade designs, etc. I do my best to ensure that every brand is committed to safe work and liveable wages for their garment workers, but if you see a brand on the list that you do not think should be there, please do not hesitate to contact me.
