Compare Ethics Launch Pop-Up – The Line Up

Compare Ethics Launch Pop-Up – The Line Up

Later this week Compare Ethics will launch the UK’s ethical fashion comparison website – allowing you to compare price, style and ethics in one place. Giving you choice and confidence from one platform.

To celebrate our launch, we are throwing a pop-up party 9th – 12th August in partnership with the Old Truman Brewery’s V For festival. Come down to expect a drink on us, music and most importantly: brands who share your values.

We are pleased to announce our final line up for the Compare Ethics launch!

Kicking off our line is the fabulous Gung Ho –  a brand on a mission to create fashion the means more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The lovely Founder, Sophie Dunster, continuously pushes the boundaries in sustainable fashion. Her collections are not just handmade locally using sustainable fabrics, but she also weaves more meaning into the prints by illustrating particular environmental issues.

Each collection is centred on a cause, or ‘Talking Point’. That’s why every garment comes with its very own dinky minizine to give you a few key facts and info on the issue at hand.

Come down to see Gung Ho’s latest collection and talking points!

 

Go As U R

We are delighted to introduce Go As U R into the UK’s ethical fashion arena. Th new Belgium based label is set to take the UK buy storm with their mission to support girls on the go.

All designs and creations are sustainable fashion, natural beauty products for girls with an active lifestyle.

Caraki

 

Cariki is a growing sustainable streetwear brand based in London who are focused on bringing responsibly sourced fashion to the urban environment. They serve an audience which expects more from their everyday wardrobe, demanding high quality pieces that are built to last without sacrificing on stylish design.

 

The Cariki team continue to experiment with new and innovative techniques in the hope of leading the fashion industry away from its unsustainable trajectory, using materials such as premium organic cotton, recycled fabrics and low impact blends.

 

WYNAD

 

WYNAD are on a mission to create gender equality through sustainable fashion. Hannah Vincent and Rob Marsh, the owners of WYNAD Clothing, travelled to India and volunteered with the TGG Foundation in Wayanad, Kerala who provide secure working opportunities to women in the local area through a stitching workshop.

 

Inspired and committed to changing the status quo from this experience, they then travelled across India to meet with Fair Trade certified suppliers who shared their vision for gender equality. On their journey they came across truly inspirational people who now make their clothes and video documented the whole process!

 

Upon return to the U.K, they developed fabulous garments that have their journey stitched through. Each piece has it own story to tell and to add to this: 10% of every sale they make will directly support women empowerment projects in rural India.

 

 

Just AK

 

We have been fans of JUST AK for ages! Their ethical street style pieces are right down our alley – they are not afraid to question, to shout, to be silent, to be part of a movement that is the Empire of Just.

 

 

Quite simply they are guilt free clothing that gets you thinking! Come down to Compare Ethics to meet the brand and their latest styles.

 

 

STIDSON

STIDSTON is a premium swimwear brand designed in Peckham and made in Devon, UK. Each piece can be worn as swimwear or outerwear. The velvet pieces particularly make the perfect transition from beach wear to day wear.

 

STIDSTON is designed by Claire Stidston who grew up in Devon and wanted to create a swimwear brand centred around an English summer – from the beaches and countryside of Devon, to the swimming ponds and lidos of London – that is considerate of humanity and the environment.  Claire believes that style does not need to be sacrificed to achieve ethically and sustainably produced fashion. As such, all STIDSTON production is UK based and all styles are available in recycled fabrics.

 

 

 

 

In an era when people are looking for handmade and sustainable products, quality over quantity, bespoke over mass produced, STIDSTON aims to stand at the front with other fashion brands leading a fashion revolution.

 

The latest STIDSTON collection has four main styles, with simple but striking designs, all of which are named after coastal locations in Devon.

 

 

Ruby Moon

Ruby Moon start with materials to save our oceans then use all the profit for business loans to empower women entrepreneurs around the world!

Ruby Moon first works with Healthyseas.org to reclaim waste in the form of fishing nets and plastic waste to help boost our seas’ biodiversity.

 

Then 100% of the net profits are given to women across 13 different countries as a micro-loan to launch their business generating an income for them and their family to find a path out of poverty. All Ruby Moon garments are named in tribute to the inspiring women we are proud to support.

 

What an inspiring brand! Truly dedicated to an ethical mission  – come meet Ruby Moon Saturday 11th August and Sunday 12th August.

 

Lemuel MC

Classically, elegantly, splendidly simple Sustainable so your fashion fix is guilt-free, and long-lasting enough to be found in perfect condition in your grandchildren’s closet, way off into the hazy future. This is what Lemuel MC is all about, ethical clothes that are designed to stay as beautiful as the day you bought them – turning the tide against fast fashion retailers who specialise in what doesn’t last and gets thrown away.

 

Mahla Clothing

 

Mahla Clothing is a conscious clothing brand based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Relaxed street style influenced clothing with a twist of a Nordic mindset. Inspired by dark, cold winters and bright, endless summer nights, city lights and urban pulse.
