5 sustainable fashion brands in Texas you need to know about
Slow fashion is a term becoming more and more common with shoppers and influencers alike. Consumers are looking for ethical fashion brands that reduce their waste, give workers fair pay, and use organic textiles. More than that, they want clothing that lasts longer than one season – items that can become closet staples, high-quality enough to last hundreds of wears.

For people in Texas, finding slow fashion retailers hasn’t always been easy. So where can Texans go for sustainable clothing that’s good for the environment and great for your body? Here’s a roundup of socially conscious brands across the state:

Miranda Bennett Studio

Austin, TX

When planning a truly sustainable wardrobe, we have to look toward the longevity of clothing – its ability to outlast rapidly-changing trends and fit our bodies as they change – as well as the practices of the company itself. Miranda Bennett Studio takes its environmental impact seriously, designing timeless styles to be worn for years, while considering new ways to approach a piece of clothing’s entire lifecycle.

According to the United Nations Environment Programme, the dyeing of textiles is the second largest contributor to water pollution on the planet. Miranda Bennett Studio dyes its fabric using non-toxic, plant-based methods that are safe for waterways and our bodies. Another bonus: this dyestuff is compostable. 100% of MBS’s fabrics, such as cotton, linen, and silk, are also plant-derived and biodegradable.

MBS has a zero-waste model that diverts 100% of textile waste from landfills by turning scraps into accessories, kids clothing, and home items. They also have a take-back program, allowing customers to send back MBS garments at the end of their lifecycle. The entire MBS line is designed and manufactured in Austin, Texas, providing ethical working conditions and wages for all employees. From end to end, this company is practicing mindful sustainability and producing clothing humans can feel good about wearing.

FERRAH

Dallas, TX

This relatively new, eco-luxury women’s brand is based in Dallas, Texas. FERRAH produces small-batch and made-to-order pieces, bridal gowns, and – oh, yes, Texas – hats. From gorgeous boleros to modern western styles and even bridal hats, each piece is made with regionally sourced natural materials and crafted locally in Texas.

FERRAH continues to broaden its sustainable processes by lowering its carbon footprint and eliminating waste. Fabric scraps are transformed into accessories and any extras are donated to quilting guilds. They’re also exploring plant-based, environmentally friendly alternatives to leather. The team has transitioned to using recycled packaging (down to the thank you notes included with your purchase) and ended seasonal marketing in favor of promoting timeless pieces that you’ll wear for years. Keeping production small and in-house allows the brand to prioritize transparency and sustainability from beginning to end.

SUAVS Shoes

Austin, TX

When considering an ethical wardrobe, having fewer, more hard-working pieces is almost as important as how the clothing is made. For shoes, versatility is key to a smaller footprint, so to speak. That means finding pairs that can transition from work to weekend to traveling the globe – all with style and comfort.

SUAVS is a sustainable footwear company based in Austin, Texas, with comfortable, everyday styles for men and women. These lightweight, ethically-made sneakers are “digitally knit” with 100% post-consumer recycled water bottles and use only vegan materials. In addition, SUAVS ensures safe and fair working conditions in their Fujian-based manufacturing facilities.

SUAVS is continually finding new ways to expand its sustainable practices, like reducing material waste during manufacturing, cutting out excess packaging, and donating unsold shoes to those in need through organizations like Soles4Souls and LifeWorks.
