ethical clothing brands

This is a resource I plan on updating over time, referencing lists other lovely people have made and adding to this list as my own research continues.

  • not essential but preferably: women owned or majority women-run businesses, contributing to the creation of marketplace solutions where there would otherwise be none, and aiding the lives of women in additional ways like helping them escape the cycle of poverty, releasing from the shackles of human trafficking, or cultivating a brighter future: funding education, micro-finance loans, skill development, family nutrition, literacy lessons.
