hey guys.. you can dress sustainably, too!

While Sustainably Chic has a ton of wonderful women's brands to showcase, I've had several people ask me about men's brands because they want their husbands and boyfriends to be a part of the slow fashion movement, too. It's about time I came out with a list for them! One of my favorites is SALTURA {the hoodie pictured above my boyfriend helped model} since I find the clean & coastal inspired look to be very appealing to many. They make sustainable fashion look cool for dudes & that is exactly what we need.


SALTURA

A brand centered around local design & coastal vibes, SALTURA creates with the environment & oceans in mind. All garments are designed, woven, dyed, cut and sewn along a 90 mile stretch right here in the US {California}, and consist of graphic tees, board shorts, hoodies & more. Their top choice in fabric is organic cotton - & they picked a pretty soft one!! With 25% of the world's chemicals being used in fertilizers and pesticides for conventional cotton, SALTURA knew they needed to make a difference in our ecosystem by making the switch and supporting organic. Help them support the shift towards the use of eco fabrics by shopping SALTURA online - here -

Thought Clothing 

A UK based brand with eco-friendly fabrics and a slow fashion approach, Thought has the mantra to live by when it comes to your clothing - ‘Wear Me, Love Me, Mend Me, Pass Me On’. 

Hemp, Bamboo, Natural Wool, Organic Cotton, Recycled Poly, Rayon & Tencel... every fabric they use is sustainably sourced! Plus, their design team is on point, and I'm always excited to see what they come up with next.


MATTER 

A Singapore based, socially motivated label focused on travel wear for the modern nomad.

MATTER began with two entrepreneurs who brought artisans and designers together to create travel ready pants with cultural tales. They contribute homage to the history, culture and geography of each area they work with.

Creating a sustainable income for their artisans is of the upmost importance while creating these unique prints with ancient techniques. Very unique & beautifully executed! 


MY SISTER 

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, MY SISTER is fighting sex trafficking and supporting positive futures for those rescued.

The mission: "To create a world where all girls and women are employed to live free from a life of inequality and sex trafficking". For every purchase, they donate 6+% to their non-profit partners working to end modern day slavery.

MY SISTER takes it a step further and offers opportunity to women survivors by helping them start their professional career as an intern or supporting the makers like jewelry artisans in Nepal. 


HOPE Made

 Serious about where their fabric is sourced, HOPE Made has been certified under the Child Labor Free mark which ensures every step of the manufacturing process is free from child labor and holds high ethical standards for the workers involved.

Since HOPE Made does not produce everything in house or grow their own material working with certified farmers and factories, as well as logistic companies like eco-minded Verde, help keep the entire chain transparent and honest. 


Green Orchyd

In 2013, Christine Myint was online searching for fashionable clothing which did not compromise the Earth and its people.

She found it difficult to find everything she loved within one location.

Green Orchyd began as a need - somewhere any man, woman or child {with their parents, of course} could shop and feel right about the product they were buying.
