Ethically manufactured clothes, are they worth it?

Ethically manufactured clothes, are they worth it? It’s 2017. We are conscious of our health and only buy the best produce free of pesticides, no preservatives, non-GMO, and we make the effort to make sure that our produce has been grown in a sustainable way.

Introducing Vodim...and Slow Fashion

'Vodim and Slow Fashion'   Hello and Welcome to Vodim's first blog. We hope you enjoy it and look forward to hearing your positive feedback! Slow Fashion is a movement which is gaining momentum amongst environmentally conscious fashionistas. The Slow Fashion Movement focuses on reducing our excessive consumerism. It challenges our acceptance of cheap and poorly made clothing and makes us conscious of the environmental impact of mainstream fashion. We are of course referring to the mainstream fashion industry that relies heavily on the (often) unethical mass-production of clothing on a global scale. The Slow Fashion Movement aims to deaden our impulse to spend, spend, spend and have us instead turn our attention to pieces of high quality that will...
