Each stage in the life-cycle of every product you buy has a measured impact on the environment. From designers and manufacturers to distributors and you, there are many ways to make a significant difference in how environmental a piece of clothing can be. In addition to the kind of material used, such as organic, recycled, and repurposed; sustainable clothing also considers where materials are grown and manufactured and by whom.
At Filosano, we believe that part of the evaluation of a sustainable product is the way that the people and animals involved are treated. Though this is not traditionally considered a component of sustainability, we believe that the human component is a very important piece of sustainable living. That’s why we work with local artisans and invest in community building.
