Gorgeous ethically made clothing to lift your spirit
Who are Conscious Apparel? We are two friends who share a passion for ethical fashion & wanted to do something for the environment and planetary good. Please click here to read our story.
- We are making a serious problem fun - changing the world scarf by scarf - is our lighthearted mission statement
- We aim to help women get out of a rut of wearing clothes that make them invisible, and help them find clothes that reflect who they are on the inside.
- We aim to be inclusive -we stand against fashion ageism and sizeism
Ethical fashion is a bit more expensive. It has to be if we are going to pay skilled artisan workers properly. As a slow fashion business we do not have seasonal sales or Black Fridays. We are however 100% committed to fair pricing, which reflects the quality and craftsmanship of our merchandise - and we do have the occasional promotion. We also sell preloved clothes. You can buy and sell good quality, well made, pre-loved clothing with us. Please click here to see how it works.
Autumn Winter 2020/2021
We have some beautiful clothes, jewellery and accessories for you this season. The Nargis and Varun jackets and the Rumi waistcoats from Nila Rubis are new designs for us and the prints are absolutely stunning: midnight leaves, an exquisite paisley design and a multi-leaf jacquard weave wool. We also have the soft Tusar handloom jackets as well as the stunning Dev coats to keep you warm and snug. We have gone for moss crepe for the dresses, skirts and tunics - a fabric that has a lovely weight so it drapes beautifully - as well as being made from sustainable forestation. Our gorgeous kantha stitched Yavi art coat is fully lined (in a gorgeous shade of burgundy) to provide a bit more warmth - so suitable for outdoor wear too - we hope you love it. Afterlife designs are so cutting edge and we have chosen teals and blues with sumptuous velvets coming later in the season. You can also pre-order our exclusively designed Afterlife hemp and linen coats for next spring. We have kept some of the Cofur collection in our shop for Autumn/Winter as these kimonos and dresses can be worn at any time of year as occasion wear. Enjoy browsing and let us know what you think!

Face masks/coverings to support garment workers rights
We are all about raising awareness of how clothing is manufactured. During Covid 19 we have commissioned face coverings/masks in a non for profit venture to support the work of the charity 'Labour Behind the Label' and raise awareness of ethically produced clothing. We already donate 10% of our preloved sales to this charity. Read more about this project here
