The world is changing.
The fashion industry is changing.
The way we create things is also changing.
Pinatex, a new revolutionary material created and developed for a Spanish woman, Dr Carmen Hijosa.
We are here with a unique purpose....we want to see our societies supporting ethical fashion. We know it isn't going to happen suddenly, but it's something we believe can be done with your help.
When we started Velvety, we knew there were some people already interested in ethical & cruelty free fashion, people who cared about the environment and the animals, people who also was interested in how those items were made and who made them.
The True Cost Movie helped us to realize that there was a necessity waiting to wake up, this documentary showed the real issues and consequences we support when we decide to buy fast fashion.
For the first time, we could see the reality that nobody talks about. Do you know that people on this planet consume 80 billion pieces of clothing a year? or that the fashion industry we have been supporting is the second largest polluting industry, second only to the oil industry?
However, as a conscious consumers and also now representing a business that shares ethical values, we want to help you to choose well in order to waste less, giving you the right information and offering you the right ethical alternatives, because we think that beyond a garment there is always a story that deserves to be shared.
So, you can start right here, deciding to shop at places like Velvety and stop supporting big companies with only one goal: to make more and more dollars at the cost of workers, animals and the ecosystems of this planet.
Another thing you can do is talk about it! So many people can't change because they don't have the right information to make it happen.
Spread the news, be a voice for those who don't have one, like the poor people working in third world countries for big companies without rights and also for those animals that only want to live but instead die for someones clothes. But if you really want to make a change, get involved by buying ethically from ethical companies like us and this way, start a real social change.
