“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:
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.
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.
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 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.
