  2. "Just as the slow food movement prompted us to think about where and how our food was being produced — agricultural practices, worker safety, cleanliness of factories, treatment of animals, etc. — “slow fashion” encourages fashion “consumers” to consider where and how their clothing is being made and to develop a greater sense of connection to the materials taken from the environment to create their looks.

  3. "The primary goal common to all three approaches is to bridge the gap between the company and consumers willing to pay more. To implement any one of above mentioned schemes, a company will need to research its own internal core business processes in depth."

  4. "It’s more sustainable to get more wear out of your clothes, which is one reason why we love multifunctional, versatile wardrobe staples that can be worn in more ways than one—and beyond one season. Enter Loomstate’s “321” collection, which stands for “3 ways 2 wear 1 piece.” The line, $118-$228 at Loomstate.org, boasts six pieces that transform into an entirely new look in just a few seconds."
    Check out these great, sustainable clothes from Loomstate. I love the idea behind their 321 one collection. Loomstate Creates Colorful Transformer Clothing in New “321” Collection : TreeHugger Great post! - PopThreads

    Sustainable Fashion & Ethical Production

    MISSION

    “AFIA is an award-winning sustainable, tastemaking women’s clothing line sourced and sewn in Ghana, West Africa.

    Designer Meghan Sebold handpicks the cotton wax fabric from the markets in the capital city of Accra – we use fabric printed in Ghana to support this iconic industry and showcase the fabric in our market. We work with sewing cooperatives in Ghana paid a fair wage for their craft.

    We believe in transparency, mutual respect, and collaboration. AFIA is a social business; we believe true sustainability comes from creating prosperity for all involved. We aim to shatter misconceptions about the aesthetics of sustainable fashion (not another silk-screened organic t-shirt), and production in Africa (it is a smart business initiative not a charity project).

    Buy AFIA because you love it. Feel good about your purchase because you are supporting a positive entity.”

    The collection represents a brilliant combination of design and style combined with sustainable principles and ethical production. Just the thing we’re looking for! Shop online and support a great cause.
