Background

I recently made the decision to think more carefully about the clothes I was buying. I wanted to buy long lasting, quality items from companies that I trusted.

While searching online for ethical clothing brands, I struggled to find many brands that shared my own ethical values while also being well designed / unique and contemporary - clothes I actually wanted to wear. Through a lot of research however, I kept finding brands that I wanted to share with other people.

I felt that there was a need for a central catalogue to make it easier for people to browse through these ethical clothing brands – brands that maintain both good company values and good design. So I decided to create made by who.
