If You're Not Reading Your Clothing Labels, You Really Should

If you aren’t already in the habit of checking the fabric content of your clothing, it may be time to do so. In a world full of synthetic fibers that are culprit to environmental harm, nothing’s a safer bet than natural, from-the-Earth fabrics when it comes to dressing. After all, these are only the clothing items covering your entire body. Given the rising temperatures of spring and summer, we’re infatuated with the effortlessness and goodness of classic cotton. Soft, breathable, sustainable, and low-maintenance, cotton is one of the most reliable bases for high-quality fashion — and it’s what we plan to wear all season, sweat be damned.
Armed with the knowledge we’ve learned from Cotton, we’ve rounded up 10 fashion labels committed to practicing thoughtful production processes, whether it’s sourcing locally grown U.S. cotton or employing ethical factories to manufacture the goods. Needless to say, you better believe these ultra-fun, super-comfy items ahead also boast a perfect 100% cotton score. Listen, we just want what’s best for your body, okay?
