Sustainable, Slow, and Ethical Fashion: What are the differences?

“Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want. — Anna Lappé.”

BULETIN TEKSTIL.COM/ Jakarta -Each and every customer is entitled to select what they wish to purchase. Many options are readily available in the current period, even when it comes to fashion. If you enjoy shopping as a hobby, you are undoubtedly acquainted with quick fashion shopping. Fast fashion is well-known not just for being readily available due to its constant presence but also for being inexpensive.

However, there are other options for shopping than fast fashion, such as slow, ethical, and sustainable fashion.

Like all things in life, with great choice comes great responsibility!

These two terms—ethical and slow fashion—should be well-known to you if you follow Tinkerlust, which frequently discusses sustainable fashion. It’s the same idea. However, it turns out that the definitions of the three are not the same; these are the differences:

1.Slow Fashion

Slow fashion is the antithesis of fast fashion. Tinkerlust claims that slow fashion prioritizes quality over quantity. Slow fashion typically creates timeless-looking clothing. Consequently, it stops customers from going shopping.

You can keep wearing the clothing you purchase. Unlike fast fashion, which needs to introduce new collections every season, this is not the case. Strong, premium fabrics are typically used in slow fashion apparel. Slow fashion clothing can therefore be worn for longer.

2. Sustainable Fashion

The practice of dressing sustainably and giving consideration to the values of all parties involved—particularly those related to the environment and humanity—in order to make fashion sustainable and minimize losses is known as sustainable fashion.

The aim of sustainable fashion is to mitigate the harm that fast fashion and non-biodegradable textile waste cause to the environment. In addition, it aims to bring together different stakeholders in the fashion industry, such as distributors, manufacturers, designers, and customers, to collaborate on developing and advancing sustainable fashion. Slow fashion and sustainable fashion can coexist.

3. Ethical Fashion

While slow fashion concentrates on the items or garments made, ethical fashion highlights a clothing company’s moral approach to both its employees and the business. This ethical mindset encompasses a company’s treatment of its employees, including pay, hours worked, and hiring no minors.

This is due to the fact that a large number of fast fashion clothes and apparel firms don’t seem to pay their employees. One example is the 150 hours of overtime per month that Chinese textile workers endure. Ninety percent of them lack insurance and sixty percent do not even have a work contract. Situations like as these serve as motivation for a number of businesses and campaigners to support ethical fashion.
