I believe nowadays, vegan and ethical fashion can be easy to find, but if you search for it, but ethical, vegan and sustainable (all values together)...it can be a bit more tricky, that's why when I started Velvety I strived to create a one-stop shop where ethical consumers could be sure they were making the best decisions when it came to respecting animals, the planet, and people.
Conclusion: Ethical fashion is becoming a growing trend and today customers in Europe but also Australia have access to sustainable clothing brands that are conscious of the environment, animal welfare, and their workers. In supporting this cause, we can help to make a difference in the fashion industry and create more sustainable options for clothing.
