Guys. There is an amazing clothing line you need to hear about. One that’s environmentally conscious, fights for worker and women’s rights, and is fashionable all at the same time. Say hello to Maven Women.
For those of you who desire to create an eco/social/worker conscious wardrobe (but don’t know where to start), this is the collection for you. Maven Women strives to create fashionable pieces all while upholding the dignity of its workers and caring for the environment. I call that a win-win.
Caring for Workers
When it comes to their workers, Maven Women pays “the true cost of production. This includes paying a living wage to workers at each step in [their] supply chain,” says their website. The company also solely partners with supply chains that uphold the same values—empowering its workers and upholding gender equality.
Helping the Environment
Maven Women seeks to limit their carbon footprint and use the most eco-conscious materials when designing their clothes. Their materials are breathable; better for you; and free from toxic synthetics.
Striving for Style
With such high standards, one might think design might fall by the wayside. Not true. Maven Women? Love fashion. Love style. Love elegance and glam for the working woman. And they design their clothes with exactly that in mind. When all the pieces come together, a stylish, socially conscious, and environmentally friendly piece of clothing is created.
What I love about this company (along with everything above) is that they call their style slow fashion. They take their time with production—ensuring that everyone involved is cared for. They take their time with materials—creating eco-conscious fabrics free from toxins. They take their time with styling—consulting with designers to create items that will pair well with working women’s wardrobes.
The woman behind this amazing line is Rebecca Ballard, a public interest lawyer who isn’t afraid to go where few have gone. “I refuse to believe the status quo has to be the future,” she says on the company’s website. Ultimately, the industry needs to change. “It is still far too hard for us to make clothing purchases that value the people who work in our supply chain and their communities. The garment industry remains the second worst polluting industry in the world.” Which is why Maven Women is so important. Not only does this company demand better, but it also desires to be a force for change.
