As we forge ahead into winter, Magnetic's editorial team went in search of brands that were focused on crafting garments that had both the customer and the environment in mind. With so much waste and bad practices in the fashion and apparel industry it's more important than ever to support brands that are doing things the right way.
Below you will find three pieces of apparel from brands that we are digging a lot right now, not just for their sustainable practices but for their stylish and functional gear that works in so many situations from going out on the trail to hitting the cold weather festivals.
Check out the link to the Blusign site below to learn more about the sustainable practices these brands use in their manufacturing. Act with your wallet and support brands that do it right!
