Spotlight on Pashen

While surfing the web for sustainable clothing resources, I came across the site Eco Fashion World, and in turn its owner and editor Magaly Fuentes-Sagan. This woman’s accomplishments and sustainable vision are inspiring, and I would like to spotlight her women’s clothing company Pashen.

Pashen is an online women's ethical clothing boutique. “The Pashen collection is a womens' clothing and accessories brand created as an homage to art, craftsmanship, culture, sustainability and ethics in fashion.”

Ethics in fashion - that is a very important yet often overlooked aspect of sustainable clothing. It is not just about the materials. It is also about the aspects of how, where, and by whom it is made; as well as how long the item is going to last. I think that Magaly has overcome a large hurdle in the fashion industry of finding and enlisting artisans to make beautiful handmade items to bring to the market. These handmade items are not only sustainable and fair trade, but quality items you can enjoy for many seasons.

Pashen is a true beacon of light in the fashion industry, and I hope that you will visit their website to see what they have to offer! I absolutely love the Heart Strings Alpaca Wool Shawl below - what a beautiful way to be sustainable!
