By Holly Litchfield

Let’s face it: fashion isn’t always comfortable. From towering heels and tight tees to skinny jeans and underwire bras, we may not always feel like what we’re wearing is a ‘second skin.’ This is somewhat more endurable in summer, when the outfit stands alone, but when we need to add winter coats and chunky jumpers, it’s easy to feel heavily weighed down by our clothing.

Not so with these casual 10 eco fashion brands, which create light, easy designs based on natural fibres that  let lay gently on the body whilst keeping you warm when the cold weather comes. Let it snow!

1.  Gudrun & Gudrun

Specialising in hand-knitting, these exquisite garments are constructed in the homes of female knitters based mainly on the Faroe Islands (with some in Peru and Jordan) as part of Gudrun & Gudrun’s women’s empowerment projects. 100% organic lamb’s wool is used in the creating of the designs and its unique, oily lanolin content makes the clothes water resistant, hard wearing and light. Such a small brand from such a remote place has gone on to receive widespread acclaim from fashion capitals around the globe.

2. Bamford Organics

Talk about luxurious! Bamford’s thick, plush handcrafted cashmere sweaters, dresses and robes are the absolute epitome of British chic. Using only natural and organic materials to create beautiful, ethical garments, Bamford is more than just a mere label–it’s an integrated lifestyle brand, offering natural skincare, homeware, and even meditation and yoga classes to help ensure your thoughts are as pure and gentle as your clothing.

3.  Rebelroot

Based in beautiful Barcelona, Rebelroot is a brand proud to stand for sustainable, ethical fashion for both men and women. Founded in 2012 by recently graduated fashion design and illustration student Eva Riu, Rebelroot’s ‘rock chic’ clothing with a conscience has already gained recognition and acclaim: the brand has been showcased at Madrid Fashion Week and sells to  returning customers internationally.

4.  Purl Alpaca Designs

Alpaca fleece boasts 22 different shades of warming earth colours, unmatched insulating qualities and a fibre that’s said to be ‘second in strength to silk, but softer than cashmere,’ so no wonder this soft, glossy, animal-kind material is a new favourite with eco-chic designers. 100% pure  alpaca yarn is used in the creation of Purl Alpaca exclusive collections and bespoke designs. The alpaca may be native to Peru, but what Purl does with its fleece is purely British–timeless knitwear designed for layering in an unpredictable climate.

5.  Noctu

Founded in 2011, Noctu are a family run business and growing brand dedicated to supplying organic, luxurious night and loungewear heavily inspired by the beauty of nature. Using 100% organic and fairtrade certified cotton, Noctu produce simple, elegant, comfort-purpose clothing in fresh, calming shades like dusk blues, soft roses and dove greys.  We love this label for those grey, chilly days when you just want to hibernate at home with mugs of tea and box sets!

6.  Midnight Methods

With its Japanese style and edgy appearance, the designs at Midnight Methods are both contemporary and futuristic. Raw organic cotton, delicate embroideries and lightweight French cotton trill are just a few of the sustainable materials  fashioned into draped trousers, loose jackets and perfectly cut tees that are the perfect day wear for urbanites.

7. Kowtow

A longtime favourite with eco-fashionistas, New Zealand based Kowtow uses plush organic cotton to create loosely draped cardigans, trousers, coats and tees that sit softly on the skin whilst feeling snuggly warm. As most pieces are  boxy  and unstructured, it’s easy to experiment with layering with Kowtow clothing to adjust to the fickle British weather!

8.  Study 34

Just one woman is behind Study 34:  Eleanor O’Neill, who hand produces all of the garments in her Newcastle studio. After realising how much waste yarn was  leftover yarn in bulk from the fashion industry, she decided to use this material, (which otherwise wouldn’t  be enough for larger manufacturers to complete a line of garments with)  to create her own line of warm, high quality jumpers.

9. Beaumont Organic

A British staple on the eco-fashion scene, Beaumont Organic makes all their designs  ethically in Manchester, using naturally dyed wool and end roll fabrics which would have otherwise ended up in landfill. With multi-textured designs that are both roomy and comfy, we especially love their faux fur jumpers, which are toasty even on the coldest nights.

10. Eileen Fisher

This is a label that takes sustainability very seriously. Only the finest natural fibres like Tencel and Merino Wool (and sometimes even organic ones, like cotton and linen) are selected to be dyed through totally natural processes to make clothing that feels like a second skin, no matter how sensitive you may be. Ms Fisher knows what women want not only in terms of garments with a minimal impact on the earth, but also with regards to cut–her pieces are designed for stylish comfort, and can be dressed up for the office or dressed down for weekends. No wonder she’s become an international phenomenon, selling on two continents, as well as online.

11. Outsider Clothing

Outsider is fully dedicated to ensuring their ethical clothing is made from vegetable  dyed, natural materials. Roomy and casually chic, these are perfect pieces for chic every day wear – no wonder they’re a favourite with celebrities like Livia Firth, Emma Thompson and Elizabeth Moss.

Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
