We sell clothing with values
Shop clothes with the values that are important to you, via our 8 Well Made Clothes Values
Fashion is the second-most polluting industry in the world, after oil, and is responsible for countless human rights violations. The fashion industry supply chain, from seed to retail floor, is also incredibly complex, so it’s almost impossible for labels to be absolutely perfect.
We wanted to celebrate labels that were being responsible in the most important parts of the fashion industry supply chain, and, in turn, be able to buy clothing that reflects the values that are important to us, personally. To do this we devised our 8 Well Made Clothes Values: sustainable, fair, transparent, vegan, gender equality, handcrafted, local, and minimal waste.
For a label to be stocked on Well Made Clothes, it has to meet the environmental and labour requirements of our basic code of conduct, and, also, the specific requirements of at least one of our 8 Well Made Clothes Values. The values the label meets are then displayed on every product by said label, so we can buy clothes that encompass the values that are important to us.

On average, everyone throws out 35kg of clothing each year – yes, the equivalent of half an adult human – and the brands which make it are just as wasteful.
