With more and more consumers becoming increasingly mindful of their carbon footprint, it’s safe to say that slow fashion, also known as ethical or fair fashion, is here to stay. 

The once-popular fast fashion industry embraced by retail giants is gradually losing its shine. In its place, gradually gaining speed is slow fashion – not just a trend but a mindful lifestyle practised by environmentally conscious customers who are no longer content to look good unless it’s accompanied by doing good too. 

This month, as fashion weeks across the globe celebrate the industry’s best and brightest, we thought we’d highlight the top Ankorstore brands dedicated to environmental and social responsibility.

Explore our favourite slow fashion brands and celebrate sustainability all year round.


1. Hindbag: timeless bags and accessories  

With 100% organic cotton bags and accessories that carry the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) label, Hindbag’s products are intended to be worn and re-worn for decades. 

It’s not just what they’re made from that makes them so ethical; it’s who they’re made by.

Hindbag creates its products in partnership with an Indian NGO committed to empowering disadvantaged Delhi women. In addition to receiving training and education for their children, the women are hired to make Hindbag’s products for three times the average Indian salary.

6. Reliée Studio: the second chance materials deserve

Reliée Studio is the brain-child of Soledad and Isabel – two Barcelona-based designers who decided to unite and be the change in the fashion industry they wanted to see. 

Their ethical production model entails giving textiles and leather that have been left out of the production cycle a second chance. Soledad and Isabel breathe new life into remnants of previous collections and pieces of material deemed defective or imperfect and create collections of unique, limited-edition bags and accessories.
