Why we need more POC in sustainable and ethical fashion! ft. Proclaim

Why we need more POC in sustainable and ethical fashion! ft. Proclaim

Hi friends and lovely readers! Today, I’m talking about something that’s been weighing on my mind since I started this blog: sustainable and ethical fashion’s diversity problem.

The sustainable and ethical fashion community is so wonderful and full of awesome, creative, and thoughtful folks, but it’s also not that diverse. And while I think this space is generally more progressive and cognizant of social issues than the rest of the fashion industry, sustainable and ethical fashion that doesn’t include people of color isn’t as revolutionary as it could be.

I’m also excited to introduce you to a brand that’s addressing fashion’s diversity problem head-on: Proclaim! But first, let’s talk about why we need more POC in sustainable and ethical fashion.

For knitters, knitting your first sweater is a rite of passage. It’s an intimidating feat, after all. The sheer endurance and commitment it takes to complete a sweater is a commendable accomplishment, not to mention the skills and techniques you’ll need to master. 

But what if I said you could knit a sweater, no matter your skill level?
