It’s been quite a while (over a year!) since I posted a list of ethical brands here on Truncation. When I wrote that list, I had just started my ethical fashion journey and, well, I was kind of a newby.
So I did some research via google search and created a list.
Well I’ve learned a bit since then so I wanted to do an updated list for you guys.
So today I’m sharing 65 ethical fashion brands that I’ve come to know and love!
Now just as a disclaimer: I’m still new to this whole thing so there are many, many more brands than the ones I have listed below. One thing I have learned is that Instagram is a great way to find and connect with ethical brands so have some fun searching under #ethicalfashion or #fairfashion if you’re looking for new brands.
