The mainstream fashion industry has an enormously negative impact on the environment. And the sustainable fashion designers we carry at New Classics Studios want to do something about that. Implementing a variety of environmentally friendly measures to minimize their carbon footprints and make fashion a sustainable practice, these designers have designed high quality, timeless products meant to transcend the typical fashion seasons and trends we're so used to. These garments aren't throwaway pieces meant to be discarded in a few months. They are your soon-to-be favourite T-shirts, dresses, and trousers that you'll (want to) wear forever.

So maybe you're wondering, "what exactly is considered sustainable"? Well, we've got you covered. Here are some of the ways our designers invoke sustainability in their garments: 
  • Using eco-friendly cellulose fibers (i.e. cupro, tencel,  acetate)
  • Using high-quality natural fibers (i.e., cotton, linen, hemp, jute, alpaca silk, wool) that are responsibly and sustainably harvested. These natural fibers are renewable sources and biodegradable. 
  • Using recycled materials, especially those recycled through closed-loop and/or energy-efficient processes
  • Avoiding or minimizing the use of harmful chemicals (i.e., heavy metals, formaldehyde, VOCs, petrochemical dyes, chlorine, PBTs)
  • Advancing and experimenting with zero-waste fashion and whole-garment knitting to reduce textile pollution
  • Employing renewable and clean energy to power facilities
  • Sourcing materials and manufacturing garments locally to reduce the need to transport materials and increase environmental footprint
  • Making items by hand or in smaller and less frequent batches to decelerate the fashion cycle
  • Treating fibers with botanical, natural or toxic chemical-free dyes.
  • Instituting measures to conserve energy and water in the processing of raw materials and production process
  • Using lower-impact and water-efficient dyeing methods (i.e., water-based inks and digital printing)
  • Using reclaimed, vintage, salvaged, repurposed or upcycled materials.
  • Minimizing or avoiding the use of synthetic fibers made of petrochemicals (i.e., acrylic, nylon and polyester) that are not biodegradable
  • Designing garments with durability and longevity in mind
