5- Indecisive

 

Ethics: Ethically Handmade, Zero-waste, Organic, Vegan

Category: Clothing

Based in: Australia

About them: Australian made and sustainable! Indecisive could be our most luxurious yet modern and affordable brand at Velvety. Their transeasonal garments are simply pieces of art that will make you feel unique when wearing them! The best part is knowing that you're wearing upcycled garments, they consist of wasted textiles from the fashion industry that are usually discarded and considered trash, Indecisive rescue them in perfect condition and make their stunning collections. They also use organic materials such as bamboo to create relaxed modern pieces. Something really important for us (and you don't see it very often) is that all their pieces are made to order, this way Indecisive ensures that there are no wasted garments and this is the best way to ensure a sustainable production, don't you think?

Shop all Indecisive

 

I believe nowadays, vegan and ethical fashion can be easy to find if you search for it, but ethical, vegan and sustainable...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 ensure they were making the best decisions when it came to respecting animals, the planet, and people.
