Little-known ethical fashion brands

As you’ve probably gathered most of the clothes I buy are from charity shops, but sometimes this isn’t realistic as it can be time-consuming and tricky if you know exactly what you want and just want to ‘click and collect’. So, I wanted to do a little round-up of some gorgeous ethical brands from across the fashion spectrum! Hope it’s of help to you, please do share any others that you know of in the comments below.


Until recently I had no idea that Esprit had a Vegan selection of footwear – what a find! It’s all very simple, really on trend, and will go with literally your entire wardrobe. Gone are the days of frumpy ugly shoes for the ethical among us. A summer must have.

the reformation

I am freaking out over how much I need this lace up dress from The Reformation. Everything they touch seems to turn to fashion gold (and comes from vintage and recycled sources). Plus free international postage… #justsayin


Toms shoes are not only cute and comfy – they also offer a one-for-one scheme providing shoes for children in need. On top of that they fund safe births, eye sight treatments, and water purification. I’m VERY on board with this. <3 Toms.


Dellala offers stunning handmade products from Ghana which fund education, financial training, and child care for women in West Africa – giving them the chance to both work and excel. You can get everything from clothes to laptop cases, perfect for gifts or for yourself! I’m in love.

 gather and see

Gather and See is a compilation of ethical clothing designers who are all handcrafted, organic and fair trade. There’s a great selection of styles, and a decent range of prices considering the quality. I’d recommend a browse!

Matt and Nat make stunning bags without using leather or any animal materials. The linings are made from recycled bottles, and often the entire bag is recycled. Check it out for yourself and swoon at the minimalist beauty…

    Thank you so much for listing Espirit – I had no idea they were an ethical company! I usually just ignore the highstreet and assume it’s all made in sweatshops by children, so happy to find another ethical brand. Have you read about White Stuff? They have fantastic ethical standards, and really lovely clothing.

      Hi! Yeah I was surprised too! Don’t know about their entire collection, but certainly these shoes have an ethical angle 🙂 Great to see big brands becoming more ethical as customers demand it more and more. Love White Stuff but didn’t know they had an ethical standard – will do some reading! Thanks for sharing 🙂 xxx
