Slow Fashion Movement
"Slow fashion is about designing, producing, consuming, and living better. Slow fashion is not time-based but quality-based." -Kate Fletcher
The Slow Fashion Movement was created to directly challenge the dominant culture and industry of fast fashion.
The aim of the Movement is to create lasting and sustainable change by generating awareness on the negative effects fast fashion and offer an alternative system based on ethics - one that advocates for the fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.
At SANDE, our goal is to prove that show fashion is not just an alternative, but is the better alternative.
Here are a few reasons why we love slow fashion:
1. Better for you:
At SANDE, we believe in offering timeless and quality pieces, ones that our customers can wear and rewear throughout the ages. To do that, we need to ensure that what we offer is crafted with the highest quality of craftsmanship and materials; to ensure that what you buy is made to last.
2. Better for the environment:
Slow fashion is more mindful of the materials and production practices used to create your items. This includes taking into account everything from sourcing to disposing - responsibly and sustainably, making sure that items are not just better for the environment, but also for your skin and comfort as we lean towards using more clean and eco-friendly materials.
3. Better for the people making your clothes:
Fast fashion is notorious for its exploitation of its workers.. that is how fast fashion is able to get away with producing so much, so fast, yet be able to charge customers such an under-appreciated rate. At SANDE, we want people to be mindful of the real cost of what they are buying - if you are not paying for an item the price it deserves, know that somebody else is (the workers making your items).
