What does ethical fashion mean ?
Ethically sourced clothing endeavours to alleviate issues such as poor working conditions, labour exploitation, underpayment and animal welfare from sourcing raw materials to production. Here at Alchemy Story, we endeavour to treat our goats with care and respect as we hand comb them during moulting season.
Why is ethical fashion important?
This highly lucrative business model often breaches practices of ethical fashion that has become a reality of modern consumerism. Ethical fashion considers the social sense and moral importance of fashion beyond the piece of garment. Ethical fashion is where the business considers prioritising ethical decisions through the business model and involves transparency regarding HOW things were actually made. Most importantly, ethical fashion is part of the resolution to fast fashion.
