65 (& Counting) Ethical Fashion Brands that Won’t Cramp Your Style

Karin Rambo shares 65 Ethical Fashion Brands That Won't Compromise Your Style

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.

    Thank you for this list. I’ve been trying to buy ethical clothing whenever I need to buy clothing. Do you have any suggestions for ethical jean shorts?

      For jeans, I typically go with made in America jeans. AG is my go to for denim… they are pricier, but the quality is so good!

    I love Finisterre (it’s a cold-water surf company based in the UK selling sweaters, trousers etc, and surf gear.) They have an awesome backstory on their wool sourcing: they saved a variety of sheep from going extinct and now have a growing herd that provide the wool for their clothes. They have also just introduced a new swimwear line made from recycled plastic fishing nets -ECONYL- helping to clean up the oceans. Pretty awesome to me!

    I also like Nudie Jeans, ethically and environmentally responsible.
