Vegetarian Shoes, Vegan Shoes, Vegetarian Boots, Vegetarian Handbags and the finest Ethical Fashion at US

TRAIDremade Boutique is a unique and exciting new collaboration between and the charity TRAID. The exclusive collection will feature bespoke, limited edition pieces inspired by the latest high-fashion trends fresh off the catwalk. Brand new lines will be introduced every few weeks, only available to customers. The concept replicates the fast-fashion culture adopted by high street stores except this project is 100% sustainable.

This collaboration is's stylish contribution to DEFRA's Sustainable Clothing Action Plan launched in February this year by DEFRA Minister Lord Hunt, and supported by companies such as Oxfam and Marks & Spencer, that aims to lower the impact and levels of waste clothing in the UK. The clothing and textiles sector in the UK alone produces around 3.1 million tonnes of CO2, 2 million tonnes of waste and 70 million tonnes of waste water per year - with 1.5 million tonnes of unwanted clothing ultimately ending up in landfill.

Most designs are available in UK 8-16 and prices start from an extremely affordable £20. Never before has supporting the environment been so stylish and fashion-forward.

*TRAID stands for Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development. By raising money through their high street stores the charity aims to protect the environment and reduce world poverty. By utilising donated clothes and fabrics and making the pieces in Brighton, TRAIDremade (TRAID’s own recycling fashion label) are also able to minimise their carbon footprint. The TRAIDremade Boutique will offer a higher-end fashion collection more responsive to the catwalk trends than TRAID’s own street-inspired collection.
