“Honest Department comes from a love for fashion and a desire to raise the environmental and ethical standards of the industry.”

Honest Department is an online store that focuses on ethical and sustainable fashion, so you can browse their shop filled with amazing brands with a clear conscience. Their four core values are the following:


ECO FRIENDLY

Fast fashion uses materials and production practices which are harmful for the environment. We bring you sustainable alternatives such as Tencel and items made from deadstock fabrics, in cute designs to fall in love with.

SOCIAL CHANGE

Globally, wages in the fashion industry are only half of what could be considered a living wage. There are an average of 5.6 accidents per 100 workers - nearly double compared to similar industries. Our brands ensure their workers are paid a living wage in a safe environment. 

NATURAL & ORGANIC

Our extra soft natural fabrics such as linen and ethical wool are kind to your skin and our planet. We also stock a range of GOTS and Oeko-Tex certified materials so you know you never touch any harmful chemicals.

ARTISANAL & HANDMADE 

Artisanal  items are unique. They are the contemporary expression of    millennia of craftwork and traditions passed down through generations. Small batch, handmade items are the perfect alternative to fast fashion's mass produced lines.

All of the brands on Honest Department’s site must fill atleast one of their values.

Personally I enjoy these kind of curated online stores because it makes it so simple to find brands that align with your values. You can just focus on finding the right garment. Right now I’m loving linen so this blouse by Arkitaip was love at first sight! I also love how comfortable and cute these shorts by Sitting Pretty are.

There’s something about wearing pieces that are made with care, meant to last. Wearing these clothes makes me feel strong and feminine, yet calm while knowing they clothes are made ethically and as sustainably as possible. Antibad is a curated webshop made for the conscious- yet style oriented woman. Each piece on the site is carefully selected and the brands they represent are ethical and sustainable.

I love thrift shopping. To me it feels like being on an ever lasting treasure hunt. Sometimes it can take months (even years) before you find what you are after, but once you come accross the perfect piece, in the perfect size and at an affordable price, you basically feel like as if you have won the lottery. 

 

since spending this summer at what's your legacy i've come across a lot of new beautiful sustainable clothing brands. As Most sustainable brands are a little pricier i think it's fun to balance it out with the cheaper thrifted pieces. when shopping from a sustainable brand feels more like investing in something i know i'll love for years to come, the fun side of trying and experimenting can be kept in the fashion game through taking more risks when thrifting.
