Velvety is an Ethical Marketplace with Slow Fashion Brands in Australia
Chances are you’ve been looking for a one-stop sustainable fashion marketplace, where you can buy your favourite pieces of clothing from different brands without having to double-check everything before you click “add to cart”.
Buying ethically is not always easy. Especially when it comes to sustainable online shopping.
It definitely takes more time and effort to be a conscious shopper than one that just buys anything without taking into consideration the impact on the environment, people and animals.
I’m sure you know this struggle. So thank you for caring about our planet! We hope that this post will help you make your ethical purchases easier and quicker. Keep reading to find out how.
How To Buy Ethical Clothing
The internet is full of e-commerce fashion websites. If you want to buy ethically, you can take some time, do your own research for Australian ethical brands, and shop your clothes on 5 different websites. But most of us don’t have time for that.
There are many retailers and clothing marketplaces that sell different brands all in one shop, which makes the process easier and probably cheaper because you’ll only pay for shipping once. But there’s a problem with these fashion marketplaces: you have to check each product individually for its ethical standards.
This ends up being even more time-consuming—many times you’ll end up with 27 open tabs and only buy one t-shirt.
That’s why we created Velvety: one of the few ethical online clothing stores that make the life of conscious consumers easier by offering a one-stop ethical fashion marketplace. At Velvety, 100% of the products you’ll find are vegan, cruelty-free and made ethically.
No need to waste time doing endless research, because you can trust us and our brands. You can enjoy a shopping experience that’s easier and quicker, without a loss of ethics.
One-Stop Slow Fashion Marketplace for Eco-Friendly Clothing in Australia
At Velvety, you can find all the best and most ethical fashion brands in Australia.
We believe that consumers have the power to make a change in the world by voting for the right brands with their money. We want to help these ethical brands succeed and consumers to choose them over fast fashion.
At Velvety, you can shop your values, because our values are the ones of ethical consumers like you.
We comply with all moral standards such as:
For us, being ethical means that all our products are fair-trade. Most of our garments have fair-trade certifications and offer consumers a tool to reduce poverty through their everyday consumption. We want to end workers exploitation and promote fair wages across the globe.
All of our products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free, which means that none of them are made with any kind of animal products, such as leather or derivatives. We also don’t sell products that were tested on animals. For us, a product can’t be ethical if it’s not vegan.
Our commitment to sustainability means that we focus on organic textiles. These are better for many reasons - they are chemical-free, which means that they are better for the environment and for the health of workers and consumers.
Recycling & Upcycling:
We focus on products made from recycled/upcycled fabrics and materials. This helps reduce our impact on the environment as we minimise the resources we use, including the impact of negative energies and the usage of water and fossil fuels.
We also ensure that all material used, such as craft paper for our packaging and stationery in our office, is 100% recycled or sourced from sustainable materials and companies. Besides that, all of our deliveries are carbon neutral and we ship using compostable packaging.
These are some of the certifications we value the most:
