5 Conscious style finds
We have had a couple of weeks away from our Friday 5 but we haven't stopped discovering new like minded people and businesses. So today we are sharing with you 5 fabulous finds for stylish and ethical fashion.
UND Swimwear. Finally ethical and sustainable swimwear that is actually something I would wear - simple and elegant. It has been a hard to find item as each time I discover sustainable swimwear they are usually based in Australia or the US and so buying just isn't practical with postage and vat.
Crafted with a recycled Lycra, that comes from recycled fishing nets retrieved from our oceans. The production is 100% controlled and Italian.
LITTLE WOODLANDS AND LITTLE JAGGER
Little woodlands baby sleepwear. A beautiful range of timeless woodland animal designs that will be loved by both boys and girls alike. Natural ethical fabrics are combined with charming sketched prints.
If you love this style also check out Little Jagger for their nursery collection.
Veja sneakers. Organic cotton, transparent manufacture and natural rubber are what they say they are all about plus I like their style, I would be happy to replace my converse, when they have died a death, with these.
Lara intimates. Made in London from reclaimed fabrics with the aim of creating socially responsible zero waste garments. I have come across a few UK based lingerie collections but have chosen to feature Lara Intimates because their collections look comfortable and are the first that are trying to consider a bigger bust! They currently accommodate up to an e-cup but say they are working on bigger sizing - I'll be online buying when they have that one sorted! And they are launching a maternity bra! Brilliant the normal choices I have recently been discovering are pretty unsupportive and crap!
I stumbled across Huit Denim the other week. Great jeans are an investment, one well worth making. So stop heading out to River Island or Next for a pair that will only last you 12-24 months before they tear and save the money a little longer to get a great pair that lasts .... well i'm testing that one out but hopefully much much longer!! These stylish jeans are made in Wales!
