The first month of January is soon coming to a close and still lies a long year ahead in the world of the fashion industry. While fast fashion still remains as the go-to option for many, more light is continually shed on its effects on the environment, and people have taken notice. This year for 2020, women have chosen to be more conscious and savvy with their purchase decisions, and are shifting their focus away from fast fashion. All of which, is paving way for another trend on the rise – sustainable fashion.
We at kay me love supporting ethical fashion, and our pieces are no exception. Take a closer look at how kay me supports ethical, sustainable fashion through our products.
It can be a difficult decision to make whether or not to buy products made at the expense of an animal for fashion. However at kay me, we made that decision clear; from day one, our line of products are made with cruelty free and ethical practices and include no animal products at all. Our bags are made using a premium, 100% vegan leather, put together by highly-skilled local Japanese artisans who ensure the top-level quality and finish to each bag. Scroll through our line of vegan bags and wallets.
While Japan is a treasure cove of beautiful crafts, design and culture, however the very traditions which propelled Japan into cultural recognition worldwide, is being carried on by a handful of craftsmen and small local businesses. kay me is driven to ensure local practices and traditions continue for many generations to come and we enlist local expert artisans in the making of our clothing, from fabric-dying, embroidery to hand-stitching and sewing.
Know that standing out in kay me, is standing up proud for small trades and keeping traditions alive. Explore our range of dresses, knits and stoles, or learn a little more about the kay me background here.
We are proud that we, and other brands have taken the step towards creating a fashion industry with a more positive, sustainable future. We hope you are inspired this year to make more conscious purchase decisions, support local craft and businesses and share our love for our ethical fashion.
