45+ Women’s Ethical Clothing Brands for 2022

Looking for the best women’s ethical clothing brands? I’ve got over forty-five sustainable brands here for you today, with some exclusive discount codes for Moral Fibres readers. I also update this list frequently (last updated January 2022) so do check back whenever you need to buy new sustainable, eco-friendly, or ethical clothing.

The ethical fashion market is growing.  In fact, it’s never been bigger thanks to increasing demands from customers wanting more ethical and fair clothing in response to increasing knowledge on the impact of fast fashion on the environment and on fast fashion garment workers. Especially with increasing knowledge that poorly regulated sweatshops aren’t just found abroad, but in the UK too.

I always say that the most sustainable clothing is the clothing you already have. Therefore, wearing our clothes for as long as possible, and repairing them when need be is key in building an ethical wardrobe. The next most sustainable option is to shop secondhand. If you need any help with that, then here’s my guide on where to buy secondhand clothes online.

Change Happens

However, sometimes our clothes do wear out, our size changes, or our lifestyle changes. You might not always find what you need secondhand. It can be daunting knowing where to start looking for new ethically conscious clothing. To help you out, I’ve listed the UK ethical clothing brands I know that cater to women.  

I’ve also included sizing information for each brand.  The ethical fashion world is notorious for not being particularly size-inclusive.  While many brands aren’t, some brands are making steps in providing plus-size ethical fashion. I, therefore, want this guide to be helpful for those looking for specific sizes.

When it comes to high-end women’s ethical clothing, look no further than Christy Dawn. The Christy Dawn team shun new fabrics.

When they find the fabric they love, their team of artisans cuts, sews, and finishes each piece in their Los Angeles factory. Making limited-edition runs from existing fabric means each version of a style has a very limited number. This means there’s little chance of being seen in the same dress as anyone else.

Looking For Specific Types of Ethical Clothing for Women?

If you have a specific item that you have in mind, then I’ve put together lots of separate guides, which have all been updated for 2022:

I also have a handy guide on what to look for when shopping for ethical clothing.  It covers topics such as what fabrics to look for and explains what all the different eco-labels mean if the ethical fashion jargon bamboozles you.

What Can I Do To Make Women’s Ethical Clothing Brands More Accessible?

To make the ethical fashion movement more inclusive to all, then it’s important to take action beyond your wallet.

To help make ethical fashion more affordable, things that you can do to help engender change include asking High St brands who make their clothes (see Fashion Revolution for their great resources).  This will help press for transparency and sustainability on the High Street, making ethical clothing much more accessible for all.

You can also support Clean Clothes Campaign’s Pay Up drive, whereby they are pressing the global fashion brands that have refused to pay for over $16 billion worth of goods ordered since the outbreak of COVID-19. Big brands cancelled all orders placed before the crisis – some of which had already been shipped. This financially devastated factories since they had already had to pay for fabric and other production costs for these orders. Many were left with no money to pay workers’ wages.

Here are also some other ideas on how to support the ethical fashion movement from the bottom up.

Representation in Ethical Clothing

Sustainable fashion also lacks diverse representation.  Particularly in terms of race, and of the LGBTQ+ community.  However, there is also a lack of a range of sizes which leaves a large swath of potential would-be customers behind. Asking your favourite ethical clothing brands to make their clothes in a wider range of sizes is a great first step. This is because brands won’t consider making their clothes in wider size ranges until there is consumer demand. Asking brands to use more diverse models, beyond a size 8 able-bodied 20 something white woman) is another way to help broaden the appeal of ethical fashion.

Have I missed any brands?  Do let me know!  And have you found this guide to women’s ethical clothing brands useful?  Then why not pin it for later?

Ethical Pyjamas & Nightwear: The Ultimate Guide for 2022

Image of a person wearing yellow pjs with a blue text box that says guide to ethical pyjamas, loungewear and sleepwear

On the lookout for ethical pyjamas or sustainable loungewear? I’ve got you covered, with my big guide to sleepwear.

I know I am looking for more eco-friendly pyjamas.  With 2022 still seeing us staying at home more than ever before, being comfortable is king.  The most sustainable sleepwear option would be to don an old t-shirt and an old pair of leggings.  However, sometimes you want to feel a bit more pulled together.  Especially so when you’re spending so much time in them!

Normally I would advise shopping second-hand for clothing as the most ethical choice.  However, I don’t know about you, but pyjamas are one of those things I’d rather buy new than secondhand.  Instead, I thought I’d look into what ethical pyjamas are out there for women. I’ve therefore scoured the internet for the best ethical pyjamas, sleepwear, and loungewear for 2022 available to UK shoppers and rounded it up for you below.

Like many aspects of ethical clothing, choices for ethical sleepwear can be limited.  Particularly in terms of size inclusivity and budget.  And, like the ethical underwear scene, the ethical nightwear market is quite small.  This means you are quite limited in terms of choice I’m afraid.

Guide to Ethical Pyjamas, Sleepwear and Loungewear

That being said, I have come across some great finds.  Here are all of the lovely ethical pyjamas that I came across.  I’ve additionally added the size range each brand offers, as well as a rough guide to the price per item, to make this guide as helpful as possible.  

I keep this blog post up-to-date (it was last updated in January 2022), so do check back the next time you are in the market for new pyjamas.  Hopefully, by then I’ll have some more updates and more brands offering more inclusive sizing.  

The price range key for this guide is £ = Under £50 | ££ = £50 – 100 | £££ = £100+ for separates.

Frugi*, the kid’s ethical clothing retailer, has branched out to womenswear. They now have a small, but perfectly formed range of women’s ethical pyjamas in bright and cheerful prints. These are made from 100% organic cotton, which is both GOTS Certified and Soil Association Certified. If you’re a new mum, then the tops are also breastfeeding-friendly.

Noctu Ethical Pyjamas

Budget – £

Caters for – sizes S – L

Noctu produces organic sleepwear and loungewear for men, women, and kids.  Made of 100% GOTS certified cotton in England, Noctu is also ‘Standard 100 Oeko-Tex®’ Certified.  This means that no harmful chemicals have been used in any process of the cotton cycle, from the raw cotton through to the knitting and dyeing process.

I’ve tried them out and their pyjama bottoms and tops are really soft and comfortable and wash really well.

Organic Basics

Price range: £

Caters for: sizes XS – XL

Organic Basics* (Use discount code WENDYOBC for 10% off your order) sell women’s (and men’s) everyday essentials made from organic and recycled materials.  Organic Basics say “The fashion industry is dirty – but it can be better. We constantly search for better innovation, we have a visionary use of sustainable materials – and a continued focus on ethical production”.  I have to say I’m a big fan.  

Whilst they don’t offer pyjama bottoms or lounge bottoms, I find Organic Basics best for super-soft tops and tees.  These are as comfortable for everyday wear, as they are to sleep in, so a great flexible option.  Please note Organic Basics ships to the UK from the EU.

Piglet* sell beautiful OEKO-TEX certified linen pyjamas and loungewear in inclusive sizing. From pyjama trouser sets to pyjama shorts sets to cami pyjama sets for summer, you’ll find everything for your sleepwear needs.

Linen is a great sustainable fabric choice because every part of the flax plant can be used. What’s more, flax is a rotational crop, farmed naturally in small batches, so it contributes to good soil health. Their pyjamas ship plastic-free too for that extra feel-good factor.
