Sustainable Fashion

Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability. The goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility.

Did you know, some of the most polluted areas in the world are often major textile manufacturing hubs? Typically, when we think of pollution, we come up with images of chemical spills or imagine sewage piped into our waterways or envision highly industrial cities such as Detroit, NYC or many cities in Asia such as Beijing. We oftentimes don’t imagine pollution being the result of the very clothes we wear- but to shed some much needed light, it has been said that fashion is the second most leading cause of pollution.

Sustainable fashion says, “I care about the world we live in and how my practices can directly affect the health of it and the wellbeing of all who live here.”

Our manufacturer is located just south of the Himalayan Mountains. The beauty all around inspires them to live by the TREKKA’s  “Leave no trace” mantra. We at Garment Collective, LOVE this. We will always choose to seek out manufacturers who are conscious of the importance of sustainable fashion.
