  2. A primarily underwear brand I love in the USA is TomboyX they are amazing. Eco-friendly material and not made im sweatshops. Plus they have gender neutral underwear and they are incredibly comfortable. 💜

  3. Grønne tilnærmelser

    Love this list 🙂 I would like to recommend Woron (underwear, hosiery and socks, organic/recycled fiberd and produced in Europe under conditiones I wouldn’t mind working under myself) and Sissel Edelbo (old, worn out vintage saris made in to dresses, shirts, bags etc under fair and ethical conditions in India).

  4. What about SISSEL EDELBO? Sustainable and founded in Aalborg 😀 would be cool to see it on your list 🙂

  5. Miomojo is an Italian based company that makes beautiful vegan and sustainable bags. They donate 10% of what you buy to charity, like animal sanctuaries. You get to choose which charity to support.

  6. Oh none from Canada? How sad…

    1. Do you know any good ones from Canada? The list based on the brands I know myself, and subscriber recommendations

  7. Love this post, since I’m kinda new to sustainable fashion. I would really like to know what you think about WEEKDAY, since some time ago I bought underwear by them and they claim to be from 95% recycled material. On their website they do say as well that the brand wants to be 100% sustainable by 2021, but I don’t know if they may be greenwashing or not, since they are part of the H&M group.

    1. As they are owned by H&M I would 100% call that greenwashing, sadly. They are not paying their workers fair wages either and H&M generally takes very little real action outside of their “green campaigns”, when they could do better.

      1. Yeah, as I have imagined, sadly, because it would be really amazing underwear otherwise, since they are really comfortable and good quality. 😔
        However, thank you for the fast answer, even though it is not a recent post of you, I do really appreciate! 🥰
