"Just as farm-to-table is changing the way we think about our food and where it comes from, farm-to-closet will change the way we think about clothing. Because clothes are an agricultural act. It's perhaps an odd way to think about garments, but true when they're made from natural fibers. That's why we're driven to find the best ingredients with the least possible impact. And why this season our key ingredient is organic linen."
- Eileen Fisher
Eileen Fisher is one of the few good places where you can buy minimalist fashion that is also eco-friendly, fair, ethical, and sustainable.
The brand commits to sourcing sustainable materials and paying their workers a living wage. It uses a fair proportion of organic and natural materials, including organic cotton and linen, as well as some recycled materials.
"Our environmental vision is holistic. We believe in paying attention to what happens in the field, the dyehouse, and our customers' washing machines. Our goal is to design out negative impacts - and design in positive change."
- Shona Quinn, Director of Social Consciousness
