A sustainable, slow lifestyle is often thought of as an ascetic one, pared down to pure utilitarian function. Fortunately, when it comes to our wardrobes, we no longer need to choose between minimizing our environmental impact and enjoying beautifully made clothes. Far from being superficial, the pursuit of aesthetic pleasure can bring a sense of lasting joy. In living sustainably, we can—and should—welcome beauty. The 15 slow fashion brands gathered here take a slow, purposeful approach to produce planet-friendly, timeless, and impeccably sewn pieces made to last and delight year after year.
