Slow Fashion-Amour Vert
"Green Love" en Français; Amour Vert is a women's and men's clothing company with a sustainable focus. First thing that hits you when you dive into their About Page is that every purchase of a tee from Amour Vert will be matched with a tree being planted in North America.
Most of Amour Vert's products are also manufactured in North America, California to be precise. You can read about each of the factories they work with as well as the different fabrics they use in their clothes.
I was intrigued by the OEKO-TEX® Mulberry Silk they use. At first I thought it was a faux silk making it vegan, but it is traditional silk. Mulberry silk, upon further research is the highest quality of silk that can be bought and is pure white in color. This uniformity is due to mulberries being the silk worm's only source of food. Amour Vert does use non-toxic dyes for their clothes which is a plus plus plus.
Amour Vert also has a Home section online! The Home section ranges from $3,000+ paintings to $45+ vases. The Gift section is also exciting to scroll through. They are also currently selling a cook book in their Home section.
Based on my earlier comparison of tee prices I would put Amour Vert between Everlane and Eileen Fisher (closer to Everlane) as their tees run $28+. I could not find any info about a recycling or buy back program from Amour Vert. So, if you no longer want your Amour Vert shirt or pants you will have to donate, sell, or take to shops such as H&M for recycling.
*As always I was not paid to write this blog about Amour Vert. I was intrigued by the company and wanted to add them to my slow fashion blogs.
