In the wake of the transformative months that COVID has brought upon us, a heightened awareness of our consumption patterns and their impact on the environment has become increasingly evident. At aeshaane, we believe that sustainability is not merely a trend but a way of life. It's not just about using eco-friendly materials; it's about transparency, ethical production methods, and fostering a circular fashion ethos.
UNDERSTANDING CIRCULAR FASHION
Circular fashion is a paradigm shift from the traditional linear model of "take, make, dispose" to a more sustainable and responsible approach. It encompasses various aspects, from the materials used to production methods and consumption patterns.
CONSCIOUS MATERIAL CHOICES
Aeshaane prioritizes the use of high-quality natural materials, such as silk, ensuring that our products are not only luxurious but also durable. By creating items that stand the test of time, we encourage a shift away from fast fashion's disposable culture.
ETHICAL PRODUCTION METHODS
We take pride in ensuring that the people who make our clothes are not exploited. Ethical production is a cornerstone of our brand, and we are committed to creating a positive impact on the lives of those involved in the production process.
A significant departure from the conventional fashion calendar, Aeshaane believes in producing purposefully. We do not hold stock, and all our pieces are made to order, reducing excess inventory and minimizing waste.
SWAP, DON’T SHOP
Encouraging our community to swap, buy vintage, or rent garments is one of our key initiatives. By giving old garments a new home, we aim to reduce the carbon footprint associated with new clothing production. We reminisce about the days when swapping clothes with family and friends was commonplace and aim to revive this sustainable tradition.
HOST A SWAP MEET
Taking a proactive step towards change, we advocate for hosting swap meets. These events not only provide a platform for like-minded individuals to exchange pre-loved items but also foster a sense of community. It's a playdate of sorts for the ladies, an opportunity to refresh your wardrobe sustainably, and contribute to the planet's well-being.
BUILDING CONSCIOUS WARDROBES
Aeshaane believes in quality over quantity. By investing in long-lasting items, you not only build a conscious wardrobe but also contribute to preventing excessive waste and turnover. We celebrate re-use, swapping, and encourage repairing garments whenever possible.
At aeshaane, circular fashion is not just a buzzword, it's a commitment to a sustainable and responsible fashion ecosystem. We believe that by collectively embracing circular practices, we can revolutionize the fashion industry and pave the way for a more mindful and harmonious relationship with our planet. Have you attended a swap meet or have a swap story to share? We'd love to hear about your journey towards a circular fashion lifestyle. Together, let's redefine fashion, one conscious choice at a time.
