Eco Fashion

Sass Brown


One of the strongest trends in fashion is the expression of ecological, social and community consciousness through for-profit fashion design corporations. There is now a wide range of companies offering well designed merchandise, from one-off art, recycled and redesigned clothing, organic and sustainable textiles and garment production, to a range of community and indigenous support cooperatives bridging the gap between traditional craft and high fashion. 

This book shows the range of international companies who are making a difference with their desirable and well-designed apparel and accessories with a conscience. 

Eco Fashion explains the stories behind the companies and features stunning illustrations, to reveal how and where they make a difference.
