SUSTAINABLE COMMITMENT

EMERGING LUXURY BRANDS & DESIGNERS

CONSCIOUS PRINCIPLES

We try to create an easy and conscious shopping experience for our customers. Because sustainability is a very broad word and can be misleading, we have created a series of icons to index and assess all the brands and products in our catalogue so our costumers, YOU, can have a more clear and conscious decision when buying from us.

At WE WEAR we vet all our brands and designers against our principles. Although they all share similar values and commitments towards the planet’s environment, living beings and society; each of them might have a greater impact on their carbon footprint reduction than others, wellbeing improvement, or a different approach on how to tackle different issues and causes in the way they produce their amazing designs. Regardless of which one or combination of these are, all of them play an important role.
