SLOW-FASHION: Revolutionize your wardrobe for a better world 🌿

18-10-2023

So here, we're going to talk about fashion, but ethical, ecological fashion, in short, Slow Fashion ! 🌟

You know what ? The fashion industry is great, but when it comes to pollution, it's not fun... From creation to sale, each item of clothing has its impact. But hey, there is hope! Slow Fashion is a new movement that is needed to say STOP to Fast-Fashion which is degrading our beautiful planet! 🌎💫

What is Slow Fashion ?

Slow Fashion is a movement that seeks to create and consume clothing in a more conscious, ethical and sustainable way. Unlike Fast Fashion , which is defined by low-cost mass production and uninterrupted renewal cycles, slow fashion highlights quality, sustainability and respect for the environment. 👕

“ Less is more ”: quality over quantity

Priority is given to quality rather than quantity. Slow fashion brands opt for less bulky production and carefully select their factories. So, our clothing is designed to be durable and long lasting, being able to be worn for many years.

 

Production that respects people and the environment

Respect for the environment guides the production of Slow Fashion brands. This means using sustainable materials, reducing waste and limiting carbon emissions. Our use of the Zero Waste label at Waïloa aims to minimize waste as much as possible, as evidenced by our initiative of labels seeded with daisy seeds to plant, with a view to zero waste.

We attach great importance to respecting workers. Unlike many fast fashion brands that exploit workers in precarious conditions, we strive to ensure fair and safe working conditions and fair pay. Our Fair Wear label aims to establish best practices in textile processing, such as free choice of work, the prohibition of discrimination, child labor or exploitation, the right to freedom of association and consultation collective, safe and hygienic working conditions, as well as binding employment contracts.

Respect for animals

Finally, our commitment to respecting animals is a priority. We work with materials certified by PETA Vegan Approved at Waïloa, to guarantee that our clothes do not contain any animal materials and are not tested on animals. Additionally, by eliminating plastic, we help protect our planet as well as wild animals.

📎 We collaborate with several ecological labels. Come take a look here at our ecological labels.
