Ethical Fashion doesn't mean you have to walk around wearing burlap. Ethical Fashion has many principles to it, but one thing we want to highlight is that it means buying quality not quantity. It also means that you know where your clothes are being made, and what they are made of. We have gotten used to the idea of disposable fashion at cheap prices. But our grandparents had it right -- buy something of quality for a little more money and have it last for years an years. Here are some of our favorite Ethical  Fashion companies, they pride themselves on quality, transparency and they really don't break the bank!

EVERLANE:
They value quality and transparency. The best place to find beautiful basics like t-shirts, shoes, pants and dress shirts. They are affordable, chic and will last a very long time. You can read about each factory they use, how much it cost to make the item and how much they are marking it up.

VRAI & ORO
Vrai & Oro, meaning "truth and gold" has a similar business model to Everlane. There is no middleman, so they can deliver quality products, ethically and affordably. Everything is made in Los Angeles with quality materials. Their pieces are simple and will last years and years. It's better than the "gold" ring that turns your finger green!

THRONE WATCHES:
Designed in Brooklyn, assembled in America. These watches have style and definite quality. They also refurbish watches from the 60s, so if you want to feel like Don Draper, you can. :)
