Founded by Javier Goyeneche in 2009, Ecoalf is Spain’s first B Corp certified fashion brand. At its heart is sustainability and a commitment to doing things in the most environmentally conscious way, recognising the urgency to tackle clothing waste. Collections star recycled materials including cotton and wool to minimise waste and push circularity.
With robust waterproofs, cool basics and colourful caps, Ecoalf is the go-to brand for the conscious consumer, where style meets sustainability and forms a harmonious balance.
Another addition to enhance your planet-conscious efforts is Eribé, the innovative knitwear brand based in Melrose in the Scottish Borders. Championing the Made in Scotland label and putting a modern spin on traditional Scottish attire, you can browse a range of products made from high-quality natural yarns that last a lifetime. With the likes of lambswool and merino, these knits will keep you toasty.
Sandbanks offers luxury everyday wear driven by sustainability, with clothes made almost entirely from plastic waste. To further tackle the clothing waste crisis, this brand always adheres to practices that promote longevity. That means you’re only buying clothes that last thanks to skilled craftspeople and mindful manufacturing. Key investment pieces, like the Branksome long puffer jacket made from recycled plastic bottles, will keep you snug year after year.
Technology and tailoring join hands at UBR. This is the Norwegian brand producing stylish outerwear using advanced technology for the ultimate barrier against all kinds of weather, no matter where in the world you are. These special techniques result in coats, parkas and vests engineered with the perfect fit, that are extra light but extra warm, and always breathable. When shopping for your winter outwear, be sure not to overlook UBR. From light rain to snow blizzard, it has you covered.
The outdoorsman with excellent taste will be pleased with the arrival of Peuterey, the Italian brand specialising in outdoor clothing. These garments are designed to completely conquer the cold, with the level of thermal comfort ranging from everyday lightweight (temperatures between 15°C and 5°C) to tech warmth (insulation up to -20°C). This means you can select clothes, including down jackets, gilets and water-repellent jackets, based on their ability to keep you warm.
