In order to keep up with increasing supply and demand, the fashion industry is accelerating the pace at which it puts out clothes. Unfortunately, the resulting endless supply of cheap, on-trend clothing is having terrible side effects, not least of which is the rapid destruction of the environment and the human rights crises in countries where cheap industrial labor is completely unregulated. One way to combat this horrifying downward spiral is by investing in high-quality luxury goods that are crafted with a conscience. These pieces might be more costly, but they are literally meant to last a lifetime.
Maiyet is an inspiring luxury brand that values quality and craftsmanship above trends, but it just so happens that its products are extremely fashionable too. Its emphasis on sustainable luxury and fair-trade fashion is supported by a large community of artisans in developing countries who have chosen to partner with the company because of its above-board practices. It donates a percentage of all profits to the training and development of artisans and pays fair wages and advance deposits for work.
In this shoppable edit, Savoir Flair rounds up ten unbelievably gorgeous, socially responsible, ethically sourced, and eco-friendly products from Maiyet that will have you believing in the benefit of a slow fashion industry – both for mankind and for your wardrobe.
