Bangs

BANGS were inspired by its founder's travels in Asia so an Asian family-owned factory creates these vegan friendly, unisex shoes for fair wages and hours and 20% of their profits provide recyclable loans for entrepreneurs worldwide. We're in love with this quirky US map pair you can colour in.


Flock By Nature August LUST LIST

Flock by nature

New thoughtfully produced luxury knitwear label, Flock by Nature, is all about slowing down, enjoying the smaller details and wrapping up in gorgeous all natural knits. Simple shapes and subtle colours give it a minimalist feel and its lightweight sweaters will become wardrobe faves by winter.

Common Texture

Fabric waste is becoming more and more of a problem, but what if fabric destined to be trash became your new bag? Common Texture uses re-purposed 100% cotton fabric to create its sophisticated yoga mat bags and supports traditional arts, reinvigorating crafts that simply cannot be replicated by a machine.


Good Cloth Pebble Magazine Lust List1

Good Cloth

Sustainable fashion store Good Cloth is an easy way to make sure everything you buy is ethically made. We're loving this gorgeous Leguna weekender bag that's been made in Guatamala by a small Fairtrade co-op. Roomy and really special.

Every thread matters at Tonle. It uses both zero waste designs and scrap fabrics from Cambodia's factories and upcycles them into stylish, comfy everyday wear. Even its clothes tags are made from scrap fabric. We love this two tone jersey fabric kaftan, it'll be a much loved autumn staple in no time.
