Ethical Christmas shopping guide – Great gifts for her

Here at Natural Collection we’re all about the holiday season. We also sympathise with those among you who are absolutely useless at Christmas shopping – me being one of them. Personally, I’ll just ask for links to things people want and that’s that, but really, there’s nothing surprising about being bought something you specifically asked for.

Thoughtful gifts are the best ones, and luckily we’re stocked up to the gills with thoughtful, ethical gifts for her that’ll help spread the cheer on Christmas morning. Here’s a breakdown of just some of the items that would make a great pressie for that special girl (be it your friend, girlfriend or even your mum).

Our Fabrics – Hemp

Carrying on with our ‘Our Fashion’ series of blog posts, today I’m going to talk about Hemp. The word ‘hemp’ conjures up images of so called ‘hippies’ from the 60s and 70s, wearing mis-matched clothing, not focussing on the fashion aspect of clothing and rather the practical, earth-friendly elements. Of course there is absolutely nothing wrong with this outlook, but there are those of us who do care deeply about how stylish our clothes are as well as how environmentally friendly they are.

The clothing we choose to sell is always either ethically made or made with eco-friendly, ethically sourced materials. We strive to support the sustainable fashion industry by offering you the choice of real, ethical alternatives to fast fashion. In this post I’d like to talk more about bamboo being used to make clothes, and look at why it can be a much better option for you as well as the environment. Continue reading Our Fabrics – Bamboo

Our Fabrics – Organic Cotton

The fashion industry is the world’s second most polluting industry, with the textile industry using more water than any other industry apart from agriculture. Cotton has been called the world’s dirtiest crop due to its heavy use of insecticides (almost 16% of all insecticides produced globally) and water, along with high greenhouse gas emissions and land use. Continue reading Our Fabrics – Organic Cotton

Vegan Shoes

When it comes to fashion for vegans the rules are quite simple – no leather, no wool, no silk, no fur – and there are plenty of options to choose from as many pieces are made from cotton or polyester, and you can get faux leather or faux fur. Stereotypically vegan shoes are ‘ugly’ and unsuitable for the fashion conscious – is this why people shun them so much?

I can absolutely say with 100% confidence that not all vegan shoes are ugly, you can see from the images in this post just how pretty vegan shoes can be! Continue reading Vegan Shoes
