Slow directory

Rutland, UK
For years I’ve been compiling a list of my favourite ethical UK clothing labels, hoping to one day organise some events or collaborate to bring us together as a community to celebrate the Slow fashion movement and shine a more powerful spot light on the changes needed to make this industry more sustainable.

So I decided a great starting point would be to set up an online Slow directory with a carefully curated list of concious designers, makers and artisan crafters for you to discover and get behind. All who are working hard to give you a more mindful alternative to fast fashion.

I think most of us now are of the mind set that we want to buy fewer but better items in our life, investing our money in companies with a conscience who are trying to make our world a better place. I understand though it's not always easy to find the right brands with products that suit our taste levels, especially when our list of demands is increasing by the day in our quest to shop more mindfully. We want quality materials that have been responsibly sourced with no or little damaging effects to the environment, durability in construction so we can wash and wear the item knowing it will endure and possibly get even better with age, we even want the item to look unique and refined so that it fits in with our tasteful capsule wardrobe knowing it will get maximum wear.. and of course the knowledge that the item has been made under fair humane conditions by people who love and respect their craft.
Well, I think I've got you covered with this Slow directory line up and I'd very much like to hear about your ethical favourites if not listed so I can possibly extend the list or even open it up to an international audience in future.
