His and hers is so last century. Embracing all things fluid is sustainably minded, non-gender fashion brand Xandra Jane. Based in Cardiff, you can trace each item's journey through the UK, many things have been upcycled. This lightweight gingham backpack is a must for summer, whoever you are.
US brand Recover has hit the bottle. Eight in fact. Each eco-friendly T-shirt is made with eight recycled plastic bottles in a process that uses less water and energy than traditional manufacturing. There's a range of T-shirts, hoodies and bags for guys and girls. We love their commitment to all things parks.
We're suckers for a new summer bag especially one that's handworked leather with a beautiful tree motif. Funky Kalakar brings back ancient Indian and Asian artistic forms, pays the artisans properly and sells through online store ethical.market so you can indulge guilt-free.
