While fast fashion giants maintain their unsustainable sourcing and unethical production, these small brands show there is a better way against all odds.
We’ve picked the brands that don’t compromise on style or material quality in their apparel while staying eco-friendly. The additional beauty in these clothes is the feeling you get when you remember you’re wearing an eco-friendly product.
If you haven’t tried that out yet, this is the best starting point.

Be one of the first to take a step in the right direction, either on-the-court, on the street, or anywhere your heart desires with Ascot Manor’s newest Members Only collection! Combining everything you know and love about athleisure wear this brand will have you looking your best, and feeling it as well. Made with the highest quality ethically sourced performance materials that cause minimal environmental impact including Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and SGS Printing.
And not to be a showoff, but the brand also has another hidden message of helping advance and sponsor under-resourced competitive junior tennis players through their ‘Lower The Net’ initiative which re-invests a portion of sales back into Ascot Manor. The collection price points range from $30.00 – $100.00 USD.

This is a great accessory for young professionals who want to keep their phones close (but not in hand) at all times. Many of our customers wear Keebos as a fashion accessory; either as a necklace or cross-body.
