Twelve years ago, I read the book Cradle to Cradle (C2C) while traveling around the US and Europe to befriend the handful of pioneers in sustainable fashion. At the time, my friend Annouk Post and I were in the process of setting up and running the very first sustainable fashion store in The Netherlands.

One of our long-standing GUIDE members has just gone through a complete re-brand and upgrade to their site.  We are super excited to introduce Barefoot Eco Outfitters, their new product line, their steadfast devotion to the environment and all living things, and their inspiring message. 

 

The team at Barefoot Eco Outfitters believes there is something sacred about nature that brings you back to your authentic self. It doesn’t matter who you are, nature accepts you. Nature doesn’t judge. And they believe that sleeping under the stars with just the whispering wind or rush of a river to sing you to sleep invites you to appreciate your true self. For the team at Barefoot Eco Outfitters, that’s pure bliss. Maybe it is for you too.

I love all things upcycled and now that I’m a Mom, I’ve been looking more into upcycled children’s clothing.  If you’re like me, you asked for all second hand clothing on your baby registry practically begging people, “It’s okay please don’t buy it new, go to the thrift/consignment store, wash it, and I’ll think you’re even cooler, trust me!”  You want to continue that mindset as your child grows and luckily brands are making it easier for us.

Beru Kids is an ethical children's clothing brand repurposing deadstock materials into original styles for kids. Styles like harem pants, bomber jackets and breezy dresses from soft, durable fabrics in playful prints are designed and crafted locally in a partner factory implementing sustainable practices in downtown Los Angeles.

UncommonGoods: Beautiful, Unique, Sustainable Gift-giving

In 1999, Dave Bolotsky visited a Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C. and was fascinated by the variety of unique handmade goods and the talented people who created them. He saw a significant demand for beautiful design and quality products. He also realized the artists who created the pieces were often traveling great distances in order to sell their designs at the show. Inspired by his experience, Dave had a vision to create an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with individuals looking for truly special goods, regardless of the physical distance between the maker and the shopper. Dave turned this idea into UncommonGoods, an online marketplace brimming with unique products, which meet the highest standards for design and social responsibility.

Rose & Willard: Empowering, Sustainable, Ethical Elegance from Great Britain
Written by Carolina Flaminia Perrone - Saturday, 12 March 2016

Only 60 years ago, women were mostly wearing aprons and impractical cocktail dresses.  Once they began competing for jobs traditionally held by men - politicians, judges, stock brokers, CEOs - women had to come up with wardrobes that would communicate their reliability, skills, professionalism, and ability to get the job done as well as their male counterparts.  In the workplace, men had suits that inspired respect, power and trust.  What did women have?


Forced to prove themselves in a male-dominated, gender-biased world which, to this day, still operates under the unspoken rules of glass ceilings, sexism, unequal pay and hiring criteria, women often found themselves losing their own sense of identity and femininity, and ended up adopting more and more of the masculine style, appearance, and character traits.


Heidy Rehman, founder of Rose & Willard, a British ‘feminist’ fashion brand that offers career women uniquely feminine, luxurious, elegant, refined, high quality, versatile, and ethical womenswear, shared her insights about her experience and vision with EFW.
