These brands prove that you don't have to sacrifice style to be eco-friendly and environmentally responsible.
Here are my top 7 labels:
"All of our pieces are handmade with passion," designer Lia Terni tells E! News. "The brand is founded on upholding the highest quality, beginning with the ethical sourcing of materials through finishing each piece by hand at my new Miami atelier."
Terni, who was born in Brazil to an Italian family, credits the refreshing look of the line to the exposure she experienced while living in many cities like Madrid, London, and Sao Paulo.
Items are made from 100% alpaca wool, which is not chemically processed. The fleece of the alpaca is entirely renewable. This beanie gives back five meals to children in need.
All of the brand's apparel and accessories are 100% artisan made and celebrate the native crafts of Mexico.
All of their components are sourced from Spain and locally to their Spanish factories.
"Workers' rights are respected and extra hours are paid. The factories have become real partners for us over the past years that we've been working with them," the brand says. "Our continuously evolving standards push them to adapt and constantly improve the fabrication conditions."
"Our bags are individually handcrafted, taking up to three months to make one bag and blend the tradition, originality, and creativity of Guatemalan women with modern, trendsetting designs," the brand says.
