Sustainable & Ethical Streetwear's

It's been said that the roots of streetwear are in hip-hop culture from the 1980s at the beginning and the surf and skate cultures. It's a casual and urban style that's both stylish and trendy. It's most well-known in comfortable tops or hoodies, hats, and sneakers.

Since its beginnings, streetwear has shown identity and gives the feeling that you belong to a broader community of people who share the same values. It was a subculture, or counterculture, acting as an alternative to the conventional.

One of the latest changes in fashion is the growth of streetwear. While the subculture has existed for a long time, it's now revived thanks to the popularity of street culture through Instagram. Inspired by hip-hop and skating streetwear, it's often associated with logo-heavy sweatshirts, graphic t-shirts, and grandpa's sneakers.

A single style doesn't define streetwear, and it's a mix of various types, from casual leisurewear to more formal workwear, and often includes vintage pieces. An excellent example of the present Zeitgeist and our current fashion, streetwear manifests a more significant cultural shift in which every style is mixed and paired.

In the past few years, massive growth in streetwear indicates it is becoming more popular with the luxury market embracing the style. Gucci has decided to develop exclusive streetwear for younger customers while adding an extra layer of exclusivity to the already fashionable look.

While streetwear has always been at the top of social consciousness, it hasn't tackled environmental concerns. If it's not producing cotton hoodies and tees, most streetwear products rely on fossil fuels like nylon and polyester, which are incredibly harmful to the environment.

It's not as if many streetwear styles are designed with timelessness in mind. With the constant fashions, young buyers are constantly urged to purchase more, often judging types to be "out of style," which encourages overconsumption. Some brands create more than 350 items per year.

The good news is that the times are changing. September 20, 2021, Lyst report stated the streetwear companies are slowing their collections, dubbed the new fashion "streetcar."

The appeal of streetwear has always been too young consumers. Studies have shown there is a trend that House Of Babas is strongly preferring brands committed to sustainable practices in the areas of sustainability and sustainability for society, as well as an increase in independent streetwear labels that emphasize ethical practices while also appealing to the most open-minded consumers.

From recycling to using organic materials, there's a new generation of streetwear brands we're thrilled to help.

What to Look for in Eco-Friendly Streetwear Brands

Natural non-toxic, non-toxic fibers: Choose natural and organic fibers, such as hemp, cotton and merino wool, over fibers made from oil. These materials are more sustainable for the environment and more beneficial for your health. The natural fibers tend to be more air-conditioned than synthetics and can reduce the smell.

Environmentally-conscious manufacturing: Manufacturing textiles can often be pretty harsh on the environment. Polyester-based fabrics rely heavily on chemicals that come from burning fossil fuels and air and water. Instead, look for brands that use more environmentally friendly processes, such as recycled materials.

Fair and transparent streetwear is focused on making statements. And what better affirmation than knowing that you support brands that care for their employees throughout their supply chain. Additional kudos to companies who value transparency and provide a list of where their products are made and the people who made every item.

Low-waste packaging: Choose companies that utilize packaging made from biodegradable or recyclable materials, such as recycling cardboard and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper. Brands such as Raeburn make use of a compostable, homemade transportation bag made from corn starch and a completely recyclable wrapper made of sugarcane that is sustainably grown.
