Finally, some ethical jeans!

So since I started this, two things have me stumped – jeans and sports clothes. But I’m pleased to say that jeans are now off the list thanks to finding out about Monkee Genes.

Monkee Genes was born in 2006 out of the frustration of the denim market, to offer something fresh, vibrant and youthful. Disillusioned with Primark and disposable high street fashion, the Monkee Genes team decided to raise public consciousness. Monkee Genes is the first and only jeans label to have unique mix of astute accreditation from The Soil Association and the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS).

Innovative fits and styles in top of the range fabrics, classic denim with a retro twist and luscious sateen cottons in pop art inspired colours. In today’s fragile environment Monkee Genes is the independent label to watch, on trend, affordable and with an eco and ethical conscience. ” Read their manifesto.

They make women’s, men’s and children’s jeans as well as shorts. They also ship to anywhere in the world for 5 pounds.

Might have to order me some soon….

  1. Hi,
    I’m excited to hear about your fair fashion adventure. For the last year and a bit I’ve been trying to buy only fair trade or second hand clothes, so it’s great reading about where you’ve found stuff! You were saying you found it hard to find sports clothes. Have you heard of Running Bare? I found some of their clothes at Rebel Sport & some of it is made in Aussie so I assume at least that the clothing made in Aussie was made in an ethical way. I got some nice tights for running, they also have lots of singlets & other bits & pieces made in Aussie.
    Thanks for your blog, it’s inspiring!
