After exploring Slow Fashion Brand-Eileen Fisher I thought I'd look into another slow fashion brand that may cost a tad less. A new Eileen Fisher t shirt runs $78+ while a new Everlane t shirt runs $18+. Both prices may seem high, but with slow fashion, you are paying for sustainable practices. Unlike fast fashion, these companies aren't focused on pushing quickly made clothes out their doors for their next shipment of the most recent fashion trend. And the cycle goes on and on and on.
On Everlane's "About" page they state the importance of knowing where their clothing is made. Following a link I was taken to a page displaying a world map with Everlane factories noted across the map. I clicked on a pin on the southern tip of India and was taken to an information page on MAS Holdings.
What I loved about this page was the information Everlane shared about their shared history with each factory; why they worked with them. Everlane states often on their site how they wish to be as transparent as possible. This can be seen through the above mentioned map and info, but in also their cost breakdown info graphics.
For those of you who like to/can wear wool, Everlane has a new cashmere line called ReCashmere. These sweaters are made of 60% recycled cashmere and 40% merino wool. The wool is collected through recycling programs. The vintage crew ReCashmere is so cute. I wish I wasn't allergic to wool.
Other items are also made of recycled items including their quilted coats, underwear (regenerated nylon), bags and backpacks.
*I was not paid or contracted to write this post on Everlane. I am interested in learning about and sharing information about slow fashion brands and how they are working to change fashion's negative impact on our world.
