ETHICS + AESTHETICS
ETHETICS
ETHETICS IS A SERIES EXPLORING THE CRUCIAL MARRIAGE BETWEEN AESTHETICS AND SOCIETY'S WELL BEING.

In this series we explore the harmony of ethics and aesthetics, featuring products that cause the least possible damage to the planet and her people, while still giving the consumer an aesthetic satisfaction.

Ethetics is our definition of the growing movement of Ethical Fashion and Social Responsibility. Conscious consumers understand the environmental, societal, and health impacts for which fast fashion is responsible, and yearn to support brands that are using environmental materials, ensuring the health and safety of their workers, as well as positively contributing to local and global communities. The essential element is that for the clothes to be fashion-contenders is they must have an aesthetic appeal.

Ethetics is dedicated to the telling of beautiful, effective stories that provoke the eco-conscious and eco-curious.
