Donni makes “easy to wear, hard to take off” clothing and accessories that are manufactured for women by women. It’s made in Los Angeles and each season Donni donates part of their sales to a different charity. I especially like Donni because quality, ethically made hair accessories are hard to come by. I’ve been rocking one of their scrunchys almost daily.
Wilt is designed and sewn in Los Angeles. Their “thing” is unique hemlines and fun silhouettes for women. What I love about Wilt is the quality of their garments. Tees tend to catch holes easily or pill after washing but my Wilt tops have stood the test of time.
Yes there are a lot of ethical/ sustainable basic lines out there but Groceries is one of those lines that goes over and above. They not only manufacture in the US but their textiles are obtained fair trade and their dyes are low impact. Not enough people are speaking up about the behemoth that is Monsanto but Groceries has the cajones to go there and I love it.
Emerson Fry is one of my new favorite brands to search for used on Ebay/ Poshmark. They make limited run productions of a handful of pieces that they release weekly. Think small batch clothiers. They manufacture predominantly in the US but partner with other facilities around the world as well. I like that Emerson Fry commits themselves to making a few good things well.
Vayyu comes out of the UK and is an “award winning ethical, sustainable, organic lifestyle brand.” Their production takes place in factories around the world but the catch is that Vayyu chose to become a member of Fair Wear - a legitimate foundation based out of the UK that’s working to create a new normal in the garment industry. Vayyu currently only carries menswear but their women’s line is due to release January 2020!
