When it comes to shopping and adding new pieces to your wardrobe the options are endless. But, have you ever asked yourself how many of our favorite brands really take their impact on the world into account? The answer is not many, so we went in search of sustainable black-owned fashion brands.
Research has proven that the fashion industry has one of the most harmful effects on the planet and the ecosystem. Clothing brands are responsible for tons of global carbon emissions and they use a massive amount of energy and water. Thankfully, many designers have taken it upon themselves to use more sustainable methods without sacrificing style! More and more, emerging black-owned brands are offering eco-friendly fashion for everyone.
Finding brands that are sustainable and stylish can sometimes be a challenge. Here at DELUX, we’ve made it a priority to bring our readers the latest in fashion. So, we’ve gathered some of our favorite sustainable black-owned brands that promise to keep your wardrobe fashionable and the earth a little happier.
