The Best Handmade Clothing Brands - Ethical + Sustainable
Handmade clothing brands are outliers for their love of slow fashion and appreciation for ancient handcrafted techniques. The brands on this list have turned to expert artisans from around the world to bring their passion and vision to life. Find embroidered dresses, handmade shoes, and woven bags, all crafted in the most sustainable and ethical ways.

Producing in small batches or made-to-order is a common theme with these handmade clothing brands. She Made Me is one such brand specializing in handmade dresses, made in Bali and crocheted over two weeks.

Many handmade clothing brands on this list nurture ancient hand-block printing and dying techniques and hand-embroidery in India. Find brands like Tiare Hawaii, pictured, making handmade dresses that are incredibly feminine with a undeniable personal touch.

Several South American swimwear brands employ mothers in remote communities to craft handmade swimwear in their homes. This is in part to the huge success of Colombian brand Agua Bendita who was one of the first to pioneer the program.
