Why do ethical fashion brands matter? Fashion brands matter because they promote and embed ecology, consciousness, diversity, inclusion, well-being, respect, honesty, authenticity & self-esteem in their value chain.
Every man and woman's closet deserves to feature well made, long-lasting clothing.

We love that brand and the way they present their collection. Each campaign is a theme, such as Business on Top for example. They will take you on a journey to introduce you to their collection, and how to style it. Brilliant.
Their sustainability ethos is also an important point. They only work with organic cotton. They have kept their manufacturing factories and fulfilment centres in Europe to minimise transportation, and they don't use any single-use plastics in any of their packaging.
