In fashion, sometimes it’s better to take things slow. That is what the rising “Slow Fashion” Movement is all about. A few slow fashion brands you may have heard of are Patagonia, Eileen Fisher, and your trusty underwear shop TomboyX. Leaders in slow fashion have found creative ways to produce high-quality items with a low carbon footprint. We are excited to see the awareness of this movement growing, especially given its positive impact on the environment, factory workers, and the quality of the clothes. We want to share with you what we’ve learned about slow fashion, and encourage you to spread the knowledge of this important movement.
