From Head to Toe: A Look At 2 Sustainable French Fashion Companies

From Head to Toe: A Look At 2 Sustainable French Fashion Companies

As the sustainable fashion industry continues to grow across the world (remember our article FORWARD THINKING SPANISH JEWELRY: CHUS X CHUS?) there are 2 booming French clothing labels taking the industry by storm. 

First up is Soeur, established by 2 sisters (how appropriate right?). With several shops in Paris and  a following that is growing by the day, Soeur's goal is to create androgenous, affordable clothing that is sourced sustainably. 

The sisters, Domitille and Angelique Brion (one a stylist with Bonpoint, the French childrenswear brand and the other has a diploma in children and adolescent psychology), source their materials from India, Mauritius, Madagascar and eastern Europe and offer alluring white shirts, great Indian printed dresses and even a turf-coloured linen jacket called Dublin.

Next up is the booming French vegan shoe line, Veja.

Initially established in 2004 by Sébastien Kopp and François-Ghislain Morillion, the brand has taken the slow and steady approach to make sure their brand was able to grow while keeping their ethics at the forefront of development. The cotton comes from an organic farm in Brazil, where workers don’t have to worry about harmful pesticides poisoning their villages and the rubber is tapped by residents in the Amazon. According to FastCompany "Even the way the shoes are boxed, warehoused, and shipped is unconventional: Veja partners with Atelier Sans Frontières, an organization that helps people who have been incarcerated or are otherwise struggling to find work, to employ workers to prepare orders."
