Ethical Clothing Brands
A question we’re asked very often is what are your favourite brands and where do you shop? So we’re putting together a directory of sustainable, eco or ethical clothing brands. We’re adding to it each day so please do check back if you’re looking for inspiration. Also please do get in touch if there are any brands we should add.
ArmedangelsBeautifully designed pieces for both guys and gals.
Beautifully designed pieces for both guys and gals. A strong ethical approach is embedded in this brand’s approach to all aspects the business. Their blog is also worth checking out for more on their approach to fabric choices (from the new EcoVero fabric to their approach to wool)
Deadwood make timeless leather jackets from recycled leather. They chop up old leather garments that have reached their expiration date in terms of style, and turn them into new beautiful looking jackets and accessories. This not only gives the jackets a soft worn-in feel but also makes it a far more sustainable alternative to the average newly produced leather jacket. The company’s approach is the antithesis of fast fashion and anxious design.
Gung HoGung Ho create sophisticated design with a purpose
Every Gung Ho garment has a hidden meaning within the print. Whether it’s the struggles of the endangered Tiger Moth and the use of pesticides or the British bee crisis, Gung Ho aim to connect people with important issues through subtleties in the design. They also support a number of charities that work closely with every chosen cause.
We love the signature embroidered bee sweatshirt (£95) and are saving up for the beautiful Beatrice necklace (from £170).
KomodoA wide range of eco conscious fashion clothing & accessories
A big range of styles and pieces for both men and women. Komodo also stock some partner brands such as MUD jeans.
The organic cotton socks are all beautifully designed and supremely soft!
P.i.C stands for Partners in Crime.
The brand is consciously designed and lovingly made in a local London factory. The fabrics are locally sourced, sustainable, organic or select stock material.
The online shop features the eight-piece capsule wardrobe that combines to create over 50 different outfits. They also stock a few carefully chosen other brands.
The designs are all timeless with a slight edge to make them stand out from the everyday. The De Beau Cami is a firm favourite here at The Happens. It is made from a very soft bamboo silk and versatile enough to wear at a wedding or on the beach.

The Knotty OnesInspired by traditional Nordic crafts and babes with attitude, we make sustainable knitwear.
A range of contemporary knits with a great story. This brand was started by three friends who went travelling and met some garment workers.
