What does it mean to shop your values?
Throughout my career in mindful fashion I have worked with a significant number of brands in a wide range of capacities, and have been able to weed through the greenwashing, clever marketing, and opportunists to find the companies who truly align with the values of Bead & Reel, going beyond simply how something is made (which is important) and what it is made from (which is also important) but to also include how a company treats others (its employees and its customers) and how willing a company is to offer transparency, honesty, and integrity about its practices and processes.
Each brand listed below, on this ever changing and expanding list, is one which I personally know and support - through much trial and error - and I hope this list is helpful to you too in your mindful fashion journey.
* indicates affiliate links, which means I will get a small commissions if you buy something based on my referral. Affiliate programs not required to be on my Approved Brands list.
