Sustainable clothing and you: love at first sight?
A new piece of clothing is like a new love. You see it flashing in the corner of your eye, your heart rate goes up and you feel an irresistible attraction. The butterflies in your stomach confirm the feeling: this is it! But… do you sometimes wonder under what circumstances those sky blue pants were made? Or what impact your acquisition has on the world? Don't worry: those who opt for sustainable clothing can rely on the best decisions in terms of fair production and sustainability. Because sustainable clothing is produced with a heart for people and the planet. And with love, lots of love.
Fast fashion: love is blind
We sometimes don't want to admit it, but love is also ... blind. Meet fast fashion: because clothing is produced at an incredibly fast pace, this unfortunately does not always happen in a fair and ethical way. The lower the production price, the higher the profit. Who pays a high price for this? The environment and the textile workers. Employees are under high work pressure. Moreover, many toxic substances end up in nature and disposable clothing quickly ends up on the waste mountain. A heartbreaking finding.
Slow fashion: love for people and the planet
Fortunately, things can be done differently. The counterpart? That is slow fashion, where respect for people and the planet is central. Does this mean that slow fashion is 100% sustainable?
The answer is clear: no. Production still requires water, energy and materials. But with slow fashion you can rest assured that the impact on the environment and people is as small as possible . Behind these brands are dedicated people with a loving mission. With heart and soul, they firmly control the ropes of the production process. That way you can be sure: everyone involved in the manufacture of your sky blue pants receives a fair wage.
Say yes to small-scale production
Mana loa does not opt for mass production, but manufactures in small quantities. Moreover, founder Lyne chooses to only work with local European studios. This way you can be sure of a smaller ecological footprint. Not a trip around the world, but a mini trip in Europe.
You usually pay a little more for slow fashion than you would in a regular store. Now you also know why: you pay a fair price for every process – from source to maker and even carrier.
To be loved for a long time
Sustainable clothing is not only to be loved, but also to be loved for a long time. Thanks to the high quality, this clothing made of natural materials will remain beautiful for years. Do you no longer wear the garment? Then give it a second (love) life and make it someone else happy with. In addition, each item consists of one type of raw material, making it perfectly recyclable.
Sustainable clothing knows no time
A new collection every spring, summer, autumn and winter? Mana loa decides not to participate in society where everything goes fast-fast. The sustainable clothing brand introduces two collections every year, the clothing of which is available for more than one season. Thanks to the timeless items, you invest in fashion that you can mix and match to create your favorite style.
Natural love path
Mana Loa resolutely walks the natural path of love. All clothing is made of 100% natural materials that feel good and are good for nature. From needle to thread: the sweaters, dresses, skirts and trousers are woven from ecological fabrics such as organic cotton and linen.
