the moral wardrobe: one stop shopping at Ash & Rose

One of the struggles with shopping ethically is that you can't always find everything you're looking for in one place. You end up hunting around local shops and online boutiques piecing together your wardrobe and suffering the consequences in the form of high travel and shipping expenses.

Single-brand shops are great, but I like to mix things up, so I really like companies like MadeFAIR* and Ash & Rose that do a great job curating cool things with the conscious consumer in mind.

I've reviewed Ash & Rose once before, but this go round was even more successful than the last. I love this Seamly.co top in black and white stripes because it follows the curves of my body without being too tight or too loose, and the fabric is thicker and holds its shape better than most tees on the market. I'd also been looking for a knit moto jacket for awhile and Ash & Rose had put this one by LUR Apparel in their Clearance section, so it was a great time to scoop it up. LUR uses a recycled fabric blend for their apparel and Seamly.co uses remnant fabrics, so both items were both ethically and sustainably sourced.

Have you found any one stop shops for your ethical and sustainable shopping? I'd love to hear what they are!

  1. That was always one of the biggest struggles for me in terms of trying to go the ethical route of shopping, being able to find items I loved from one place. (Man, I'm lazy). Ash & Rose looks awesome though and now I'm going to be doing some online window shopping for the next few hours.

    1. I think that's fair. Style is important to a lot of us because it says something about who we are, so I'm glad that there's been enough traction in the ethical community to make sure there are more fashionable choices. Hope you find some things you like!

  2. I love Ash & Rose! They have a lot of pieces that are more romantic, sort of like Anthropologie, but they also carry some great basics, too.

    1. Me, too! Not everything is exactly my style, but it all looks good together, and I think that's the key to having a successful store.

  3. I actually really don't mind buying from several different shops/designers. It ensures my money is being spread around to many which is something I always like. Plus, I've found most of the places I shop at don't charge shipping, so it rarely costs me any extra. But I'm glad more places are popping up for those who do enjoy getting it all in one place. :)

    1. Yeah, I go to brand shops first if I want a particular item, because I know they'll get a bigger cut of profits. But I haven't found that many places that offer free shipping unless the order is $75+, which I rarely get to if I'm just hunting around for one to two things. What shops have you found that offer free shipping? I need to go there.

  4. Hey! I've been doing more research on ethical clothing after watching The True Cost. I especially love your jacket here. Can you tell me what the care instructions are?

    1. That's great! The jacket tag says machine wash cold, tumble dry low, so very low maintenance. I recommend you follow their sizing instructions and order one size up. I'm wearing a Medium here.

      Best of luck on your ethical shopping journey. Let me know if you have any questions.
