Handmade Clothing Brands - Expert, Ethical and Unique
Handmade clothing is lovingly crafted and adorned by artisans around the world who are experts at ancient techniques passed down through generations. You can expect high-quality, one-of-a-kind items that are made with sustainability in mind.

The brands on this list are unique in that they avoid fast fashion trends in favor of slow, traditional handmade clothing techniques. Michaela Buerger is a slow, sustainable fashion advocate and a great example.

Handmade clothing brands produce small-batches or made-to-order like Alix of Bohemia, dramatically reducing waste from over-manufacturing. Artisans, sometimes living in remote communities, are ethically employed and their handmade skills nurtured.

With so many reasons to support handmade clothing brands, read on to discover and support them.
