Considering the number of factors involved, there are still too few brands out there currently tackling the complex issues of sustainability. At Alara The Label, we are working towards a more sustainable future. Our approach to slow fashion minimizes waste, uses organic materials, and places importance on our great relationship with all our workers. Moreover, all of our products are handcrafted, high-quality, sustainable, and made in limited quantities.
Of course, we recognize that there’s always room for improvement. Have ideas about how we can grow our ever-evolving sustainability program? We’d love to hear from you.
