03 Aug 6 Brands Using Innovative & Sustainable Textiles
It’s Sustainable Textiles Month here at Mybrownsparklez! All month, I’ll be sharing bits of information about the various textiles and fabrics that are produced in a sustainable way. I’m kickin’ off the month of August by featuring fashion brands that are using innovative and sustainable textiles in the most beautiful ways. Let’s go!
I love my sandals from Bella|Ha they are so durable and comfortable. Bella|Ha uses fish leather to create the straps on their thong sandals. Fish leather is produced from the by-product of the fishing industry. A wonderful way to re-use something that would otherwise get discarded as waste. You can purchase Bella|Ha sandals on their website.
