    One To Watch 04- Sustainable Luxury Brand Callina

    If the fashion industry’s ethical and environmental strains are not enough to cause you to seek out healthier, more eco-friendly fashion options, I’m not sure what will- well maybe this socially conscious, sustainable luxury brand Callina will do it. (The fashion industry is still the second most polluting industry in the world after oil btw- yuck!)

    Callina is a San Francisco based brand that I have had the pleasure of working with firsthand, since I live here too! Lucky me! Each of their knits are made with the utmost quality and detail, and I’m not sure I’ve ever worn anything like it- especially not at their price points, which are a great value for what you’re getting.

    If you happen to be in need of replenishing your fall wardrobe of fine knits and cozy sweaters, I encourage you to do your best to make your next shopping choice a sustainable and ethical one. Callina brand is my first choice. Because of brands like Callina, it’s not such a stretch to make conscious choices on each purchase you make- considering where it comes from, how it’s made, and by whom.

    Each purchase is a vote. Each choice matters.

     

     

    What exactly does it mean to make conscious shopping choices? There are many ways to shop, live, and ‘be’ more ethical and sustainable in the world. I’m talking about purchasing items from designers and brands that source and manufacture in ways that support the well-being of people and planet Earth, such as Callina.

    One of my favorite ways to shop sustainably and ethically is to invest in pieces that could last a lifetime, that go with many other pieces in my wardrobe, can be worn a number of different ways, and used in a number of different settings. These are what I consider true investment pieces, not only because they will stay with me for years to come, but when you factor in the cost per wear- it really elevates the value of your purchase.

     

    Callina, the ethical, sustainable maker of the knits worn throughout, is a brand that is speaking my sustainable fashion-loving language. They believe that “sustainable luxury fashion can also have a positive impact on the communities and cultures where we collaborate.” Their designs are handmade by master artisans with the finest sustainable fibers, such as ethically sourced and environmentally conscious Alpaca yarn from Peru.

    Callina specializes in luxe knits constructed with impeccable attention to detail that I consider trans-seasonal staples that will mix and match so effortlessly with just about everything in your closet.
    Callina’s designs are marked by elegance and class, modern yet timeless lines, and a softness that is irresistible. I encourage you to read more about this brand on their website {here}, and of course, do some shopping if you’re due for a little sustainable luxury in your life. Aren’t you worth it?

    Get involved. Become part of the movement for a healthier, more sustainable fashion world. I believe that together we can change the face of fashion.  Wear what you love and wear what empowers you. Also consider where your clothes were made and who made them. Your purchase may empower the person who made them (or not). Shop wisely.

    Every purchase is a vote. Make yours count. Dress in clothing you love and that have a positive impact on you and the rest of the world.
