WE ALL BENEFIT
FROM THE ABSENCE OF
In a world full of highstreet chains, low wages, mass consumption and cheap clothes, where lots of traditional manufacturers or small labels have to close their business because of the huge competition, it’s important to support the independet brands! Take for example DSTLD (Distilled) Jeans – an L.A. based denim brand that produces premium quality without the retail markup. Plus DSTLD works with eco-friendly fabrics and is 100% sweatshop free. Bravo!
Another great example is Handvaerk, a small New York based artisan label, that offers handcrafted pieces from the finest natural materials. They set out to create a lifestyle brand grounded on the essence of quality – clean minimal design, the finest natural materials, and time honored quality craftsmanship. I’ve never owned such a soft T-Shirt – you can literally feel the love that was put into this…
And let’s not forget the design duo Hare + Hart, who only use vegetable-tanned leather and provide fair wages and minimal (production) waste. You could say all these brands are distilled from bullsh** and I really give them great credit for trying to look after our planet. That’s what we all should do, don’t you think?
