Ethical Fashion


 The 'Ethical Fashion' is a generic term for the activity of any company in the clothing sector (clothing, shoes, lingerie and underwear, jewelery, bags and accessories) which includes at least one of the following dimensions : the socio-economic development through fair trade or ethical and environmental dimension through organic materials, ecological or recycled.

It is a socially responsible way, focusing on the values ​​of sustainable development.

Employees are better paid and schedules as well as acceptable working conditions, unlike most (or all). The environmental impact is minimized over all or part of the production chain.

You should know that ethical fashion is so named since 2004 with the opening of the Ethical Fashion Show in Paris. There is no official definition of the term. Indeed, the term can seem a blur for many people because it encompasses many concepts related to sustainable development. In addition, the textile is longer since it starts from a raw material which is converted to fiber into fabric that will eventually become an article of clothing from other stages of finishing the dyeing through the production and finishing. Each of these steps, which can be performed by many different companies, has an impact on the environment and / or human beings that make or use these items of clothing. Thus, it is difficult to find the perfect dress ethics which the socio-economic or environmental will be considered throughout the industry. This is called the integrated.

Here's why, by convention, called ethical or sustainable product of clothing which covers at least one component of the production chain the environmental aspect and / or socio-economic aspect. This is the approach which has since, even if a company integrates both dimensions throughout the chain, the perfect dress ethics never exist: there will always be at least one element critical for the functioning of the chain that be unethical (a sewing machine for example).

Another limitation to the definition of ethical fashion: the fact that there is no official definition of this concept makes it possible for any company to claim to ethical fashion without there being any monitoring to prove it. At present, there are many labels, little known to the general public in terms of image and content. It is therefore difficult to be in the offer. Regulation would facilitate access to supply and credibility.

Of course, clothing called "ethical" or "fair" at a cost (or rather a value) and this affects the price. But would it not be better to buy fewer clothes but quality?

Differences between various notions of ethical fashion:
• Bio
• Equitable
• Recycled

A garment is described as organic clothing, when the raw material is produced without pesticides or chemical fertilizers, reducing water consumption and energy.
Cotton is the only textile that has a bio official specifications.
Some manufacturers use flax, hemp, wool, or rubber. They have beautiful products to be environmentally friendly manner, they can be labeled "organic" because there are no official specifications for these materials.

Organic clothing can also be environmentally friendly when it guarantees a biological raw material and strict manufacturing steps (spinning, weaving, dyeing, tailoring, finishing, use of natural dyes, absence or restriction of chemicals, limiting the environmental impact of because of transport, ...).

Clothing fair is clothing that just was manufactured by groups of artisans benefiting from a sustainable partnership with the brand from a raw materials grown by small producers.

These of course receiving remuneration for each stage of manufacture of the garment.
Fair trade is a trading partnership based on dialogue, transparency and respect, which aims to achieve greater equity in world trade.
The Fair Trade organizations (backed by consumers) are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in rules and practices of conventional international trade.

Finally, a garment is considered to be recycled when the creators recycle special materials (glass, PET packaging, old fabric) to make new clothes or fashion accessories. Natural raw materials are thus saved.
