Taking a quick break from sustainable fashion in clothing to talk about sustainable fashion in our own home! That’s right, fashion is everywhere, and nothing is more fashionable than ethical goods made to last. These brands can all be found at one of my favorite online stores, Made Trade - and a few of them I use everyday!! This will be your new go-to destination for ethical home goods ;)
These cozy blankets are made from 75% recycled cotton from apparel factory scraps and 25% recycled polyester from plastic bottles! Each one is produced at a second generation family-owned American knitting mill. By using recycled materials, they are able to conserve energy and resources while supporting the local US knitting industry.
More than just a home brand, Ichcha is working hard to improve the lives of of their women artisan partners in India, as well as supporting their craft of block printing, hand weaving and hand embroidery.

Who doesn’t love the hammered look? This home goods brand has been handcrafting hammered copper goods with master copper artisans in Mexico (Santa Clara del Cobre) since 1997, but the tradition dates back over 1000 years. They also only use 100% recycled copper! These products look absolutely stunning.
