Shopping sustainably and ethically is a relatively new conversation within the fashion industry. A year ago not many were aware about the mistreatment of workers in the textile industry. Fortunately, with many individuals pushing towards transparency, companies have been exposed of their unethical practices. I became interested in the conversation when I discovered the work of Hoda Katebi.

In honor of World Fair Trade Day on Saturday May 11th, we at SUSU Accessories thought we would share what makes us proud to be part of the Fair Trade movement!
I became interested in sustainable fashion during my college career when I found myself paying closer attention to the fast fashion industries I was investing so much money into. It was very common for my friends and I to go out shopping once a month or so and pick up new and trendy pieces. After some time, I began to question why the clothes were so affordable and how the companies were able to produce new collections so rapidly. Thus began my interest in the realm of sustainable fashion.
