Buy less, choose well
We believe that the most sustainable garment is the one that is loved and worn for many years.
We put our heart and soul into developing new items and every product we release is thoughtfully designed with the highest quality materials laying the foundation for effortless, year-round styling.
We encourage our customers to extend the life cycle of their Sisterly Tribe pieces by following the proper care and maintenance instructions provided here.
Minimizing our impact on our planet is at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to continuously learn, adapt, innovate and become better at making responsible choices.
We believe in slow and conscious craftsmanship, creating our collections in small, mindful batches to minimize waste and not contribute to over-production.
Worldwide, the average number of times a garment is worn before it ceases to be used has decreased by 36% compared to 15 years ago, with each garment being worn on average 7-10 times before being discarded (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2017).
It is estimated that every second, the equivalent of a rubbish truck load of clothes is burnt or buried in landfill. (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2017).
Since our launch, we have built strong and close relationships with our suppliers and we are very selective with the suppliers we choose work with. We select our partners not only based on the products they make but also on how they treat the people behind the product, the conditions they work in, and the ethical and environmental actions the factories take.
We currently work with suppliers based in Portugal and Bali.
We are committed to minimizing our footprint by using more sustainable materials that have a lower impact on the environment and promote better manufacturing and recycling practices. You can read more about the fabrics we use here
