Before Airbnb changed the travel industry, staying at a stranger’s house over night seemed weird or might even have made you feel uncomfortable. And before Uber changed the transport industry getting into a car with a stranger was unheard of too.
As if the news about the polluting fashion industry weren’t upsetting enough…the microfibers (aka the micro-plastics) make their entrance in the scene (for those who don’t know them, allow us to present them to you in a moment). How should we feel? Skeptical about the secondhand clothing we bought or the upcycled activewear we thought of purchasing — thinking we are doing good for the environment? It’s like we are in a dead end.
Well, the good news is that there are ways to reduce these micro-plastics — and it starts with our washing machines.
So here is how to…
When we asked Kuyichi, why their team felt the need to create the 100% recyclable collection the answer we got was not only limited to their sustainable mindset and DNA.
Kuyichi’s main goal is to reduce the environmental impact of the products created. And how do they achieve it? By using waste streams “Circularity is the future, when our supplier came up with a technique to create a 100% recycled denim, we were super stoked”.
Julia, one of our members: “I have only recently started reading the composition labels, then I found Renoon’s Instagram live…
The composition label describes the textile materials our garments are made of. In other words, it indicates which fabrics the brand has used to make the garment (eg. cotton regular denim, viscose and so on) and composition percentage of the material (eg. 100% cotton). The composition label allows us to get an idea of the…
You have rarely heard of zero-waste in fashion. What does it mean? What are the positive impacts? Sustainable fashion is synonymous with buying second-hand, re-wearing pieces in our capsule wardrobe, and being more mindful about how our clothes are made. And zero-waste fashion production is the answer to the dire consequences of traditional production that is polluting our Earth. Zero-waste fashion is about utilising existing materials to their full capacity and not producing textile or other material waste.
In the past there were very few designers and brands willing to leave the norm and try creating fashion in a less harmful way to our environment. But as we are clearly noticing, sustainability is not something we hear once in a blue moon anymore, the term is highly used in the fashion industry. Designers and brands are not only adopting the principles of sustainability but start incorporating sustainability in every phase of creating clothing, from eco-materials to eco-packaging.
This is why (amongst many other reasons) every 4th Wednesday of October we celebrate Sustainability Day. …
Rick Owens has teamed up with Veja on a fully sustainable trainer.
Veja collaborations with CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award-winning Owens’ are one of the most-anticipated sneaker hook-ups out there (btw, always an instant sellout).
In the past, the Paris-based designer took the French brand’s best hiking sustainable sneakers and knitted runners for a spin, offering them the chunky laces and his signature back tags.
Now the pair is back for another outing.
Veja and Owens have introduced to us the new pair: The Runner Style 2.
These trainers, the Runner Style 2, is the low reinterpretation of the Runner Style…
The term “vegan leather” is a catch-all term to signify any leather that does not come from an animal. Simply put, any leather that is not animal-based is vegan. Today, vegan leather can come from natural, plant-derived sources such as pineapple leaves, apples, cactuses, coconuts, cork, mushrooms and bio-oils from cereal crops.
But exciting as this innovation is, it can also be also very puzzling: does vegan leather perform like animal-based leather? Is it durable? How does vegan leather even work? …
Summer is over and time has come for taking our classic vintage jeans from the closet and saying good bye to summer shorts.
When we talk about denim, there’s something for every taste: high-waisted, skinny or flared, boot cut or boyfriend and the list goes on. But have you ever wondered where does this ever-green item come from?

It’s like one of the songs when we were little: the tree comes from a seed, and the seed comes from a fruit etc. Everything we have comes from a process we sometimes forget about. Clothing supply chains have many stages of production. This can make it difficult for fashion companies to know exactly where each component of their products comes from and how it’s made: the buttons, the lining, the zips, etc.
In fact, most designers have never met their suppliers. Why? What are the things about supply chain that a conscious consumer like you should know?
