Our goal is to create the best outerwear- beautiful, weatherproof, with love for the Earth, the Animals, and workers. We continue to develop innovative textiles and apparel so that one day the world will look at wearing animals as a thing of the past.

This is clothing that goes beyond fiber and fabric, to include the moral fibers we share and the community fabric that behinds us.

About. The Earth is our home and its inhabitants are our neighbours. Together we share the responsibility for its wellbeing. After seeing how fashion has immense negative impact on ecological and social circumstances, we established KUYICHI:
The first conscious fashion brand. We started our journey in 2001. Since then we have innovated and inspired. We started the organic revolution as being the first brand to produce organic jeans, and we still are. We want to be innovative in many ways, not only in our collections, but also on a sustainable level. Embracing the principle of the recycling process and aiming for a completely closed-loop collection. We’re happy to see that we raised the bar for many companies around us and hope to inspire many more to come. We believe sustainability isn’t just a trend. And it shouldn’t be the next generation’s job. We see it as our mission. Now and in the future.
We’re convinced quality fashion should be created in a 100% sustainable and responsible way. By being part of a bigger plan that drives the use of progressive sustainable materials, socially responsible production and cleaning up our production processes through collaboration, innovation, inspiration and transparency.
Paradise for ethical jeans! they sell tops as well, but beware their belts ar not vegan. For men and woman.

At eShakti we’re dedicated to offering stylish custom apparel for sizes 0 to 36W, and we’re excited to help every woman experience the thrill of wearing fashionable clothing made just for her.We believe that high-quality tailored clothing doesn’t have to be expensive, and by relying on the latest design technologies and a direct-to-consumer model we’re able to deliver on that promise.

We don’t mass produce or purchase clothing in bulk to store on shelves and resell to our customers. We don’t own warehouses, and we don’t create waste. As soon as you place an order, our team creates your piece from scratch, and our effort is the same whether you keep the design as is or choose to customize your look.

About. Kindness and compassion towards all living things is a mark of a civilised society. Conversely, cruelty whether it is directed against human beings or against animals, is not the exclusive province of any one culture or community of people’ Cesar Chavez. In 2013 the founders of Wilby decided to create a UK made vegan fashion range specialising in the ‘clutch’. These were to be animal free products that are certified for legitimacy as well as being eco sensitive and environmentally aware. The aim was and still is to create a fashion brand that is both ethical and fashionable for the consumer who can be safe in the knowledge that they are helping the environment in some way with every purchase. The brand has had an amazing start and all bags are vegan approved by PETA . We also use organic and eco friendly materials when possible such as organic cotton and lining, recyclable cloth ,eco friendly backing and cork leather.

About. Hi there, These are Wills. I started Wills with a passion to provide animal and human friendly shoes with high-street styles and prices. My dream is to bridge the gap between everyday people and ethically produced vegan shoes. Wills is about getting the latest fashions out there at fair prices, while not hurting animals or people in the process. No matter who you are or where you’re going in life, Wills are there for when you want to make a positive choice. The entire range is free of animal products while workers are paid in accordance with European guidelines. Wills really is an animal and human friendly company. My contemporary designs echo the high street trends, packed into four seasons giving you a year round alternative. Wills are designed with quality in mind. The range is created with microfibers that look, wear, breathe and resist water just like leather. I believe buying something well made saves money, provides something to cherish and is better for our environment. Best of all my shoes match the high street prices dropping the barriers to living an ethical life. Speak soon, Will Green
they do have some accessories too like belts and wallets.

About. ENVIRONMENTAL STRATEGY 2015 Managing our environmental impacts at our own sites and along the value chain, where our products are designed, created, manufactured, transported and sold, is a key focus of our work. Building on several environmental initiatives over the past years, in 2010, we developed a coherent Environmental Strategy for the whole adidas Group, which aims to reduce our relative environmental footprint by 15% by 2015. The strategy follows a clear vision and mission and sets annual milestones which will enable the achievement of the 2015 targets. These targets cover our whole value chain from product creation to sourcing and manufacturing and from our own operations to our stores and all other sales points. Our approach is to manage environmental issues as an integral part of our daily operations, positively contributing to the adidas Group’s overall business performance. An Environmental Strategy team, led by Group Social and Environmental Affairs (SEA) and consisting of representatives of all brands and core functions, reports to the adidas Group Executive Board.

The Tree Kisser
About. In November 2013, I launched The Tree Kisser shop in hopes of spreading compassionate, contemporary fashion that would allow me to give back to the many animal advocacy organizations I respect and admire. With zero official background in fashion or design but an abundance of ideas bouncing around my head, I set out to create designs that would appeal to a customer like me. Some of my designs relate directly to animal protection and some don’t, but all generate donations that will help make a safer world for the non-human animals we share it with. 10% of all sales are donated to the Love Infinitely Project Animal Fund (which I serve as the director of) and then allocated to deserving, reputable animal rescue or advocacy organizations. Past beneficiaries of the fund include Animal Rescue Corps, Toronto Pig Save, Animal Aid Unlimited, Hand In Paw Rescue, Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary, and Pets of the Homeless.

Stella Mc Cartney
About: As a vegetarian brand we do not use leather, skins, fur or feathers in any of our products, collaborations or licensed products. We diligently work to source and design beautiful, modern and innovative materials that we use to create our signature handbags, accessories and shoes – all of which are PVC free. Both bags and shoes require the use of glue and this too is diligently tested to ensure the high ethical standards for which Stella McCartney is known. No fish glue, or any other glues derived from animal parts, are used in the production of our shoes and bags. We think that not using leather is a modern and at times a daring choice. Since autumn 2013, we have been using an innovative material called Eco Alter Nappa as an alternative to leather in our shoes and bags. It is made from polyester and polyurethane and has a coating made with over 50% vegetable oil which is a renewable, natural resource. This enables us to use less petroleum in our products. The vegetable oil used our eco alter nappa comes from non-food sources. more about the company’s statement: http://www.stellamccartney.com/experience/en/material/vegeterian-leathers/
