Although not created with sustainability in mind, after learning the impacts the clothing industry has on the world, Mara Hoffman decided to instigate change. Now committed to responsible manufacturing practises and using eco-conscious or sustainable materials where possible, they have addressed the issue and act as an example to other fashion labels. Eco stuff aside, they make beautiful summer clothing perfect for trips abroad, and we’re big fans of their bright, printed swimwear. www.marahoffman.com

Anekdot Boutique have revolutionised the underwear game, finding a way to make your intimates even more special. Each piece is individually crafted by hand in Berlin, sourcing materials sustainably from anywhere and everywhere. This could be from production leftovers, a factory closing down or vintage trimmings. The designers base each piece around the materials they find, resulting in unique lines that cannot be reproduced. With prices beginning at 39 euros, they’re not asking too much.
Behno is a new ethical fashion line which marries beautiful textiles, hand-made from industrious Indian women with the key eye of designers in New York. After visiting India, Shivam Punjya Behno’s founder found that 90% of India’s clothing factories are driven by women. Shocked by the disgusting conditions and dismal pay, he created Behno. Combined with a large non-profit company, plans are to create a new factory in Gujartat, with fair wages and safe working conditions. http://behno.com/
