Pick quality over quantity. Shop with a conscience & with Less impact!
The fashion industry accounts for approximately 10% of global carbon emissions – more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. It is also accountable for endless human rights violations.
At Less Threads we want to play our part in dealing with these issues, by ensuring ethics and sustainability are considered before every purchase. We want to share our mission - to commit to mindful shopping, by allowing you to shop with a conscience and with Less impact.
Less Threads provides a marketplace for brands which share our core ethical values which make up Less Threads; Local, Equality, Sustainable & Safe.
Local - We like to keep it local. For a designer to be considered local on Less Threads, 80% of its production must be made, designed or constructed in the hometown or country of the brand.
Equality - Power to the people. We support and expect our brands to comply with equal rights. This includes equal opportunities, equal wages and anti-discrimination laws for people from all genders and races.
Sustainable - Au Naturel. We like knowing that our clothing is derived from Eco-friendly resources, which is why designers must mostly use sustainable grown fiber crops or recycled materials, whilst using no nasties along the way.
Safe - He Tangata. It’s important for us to know that the person who made your fabulous item is safe. We work with brands who support free trade and keep the people behind the brand’s well-being, safety and empowerment in mind.
