Vegan Clothing That Is Actually Affordable


Vegan clothing often comes with the caveat of being quite pricey, this is usually because vegan brands steer away from the unethical practices that allow for extremely cheap clothing.

However, with the steady growth of the plant-based clothing market, more brands are entering the scene and finding incredible ways to produce high-quality apparel for a fraction of the expected cost.

In this article, I have the pleasure of sharing brands like Earthwardrobe which use bamboo to create good quality clothing that is animal-harm free, stylish and affordable.

One last thing, ‘affordable’ is of course relative, so there will be a range of brands with varying price points in hopes that you’ll find at least one that ticks all the boxes! without further ado, let’s dive in.

As you go through this blog, feel free to click the images for a direct link

1. Rapanui

Rapanui go against the grain and have steered away from mass production, they use automated systems to produce clothes only when they have been ordered, which means materials are not wasted nor the money which would have been used to produce clothes.

With that saved money, Rapanui are able to afford organic materials, renewable energy, sustainable packaging and in turn affordable clothes for you and me.

Their business model is centred around eliminating waste and using that saved money to spend on sustainability.

Lastly, they design all their products with the intention of them coming back to them once worn out. To do this, they have a label scanning system which allows for a ‘free-post recovery process.

5. Heart cure clothing

Heart cure is a clothing brand made by vegans for vegans. The creators, Jordan and Georgia went vegan in 2016 after witnessing the suffering that animals experience worldwide.

In regards to their apparel, they really raise the bar when it comes to what I like to call ‘vegan and proud clothing’. These are the garms that clearly communicate to everyone that the person wearing this shirt is vegan.

Most of the so-called ‘vegan and proud clothes’ are often quite tacky and cheesy. (With all due respect) But heart cure is different. The designs, materials and fittings are excellent and what’s more, they print their clothes with water-based inks which are far less harmful than the standard inks that contain PVC.

Wrap up

Even after listing out these awesome brands, I must say, finding affordable vegan friendly clothing is no easy task. As I alluded to at the start of this blog, this is due to the fact that cheap clothing often comes with expensive repercussions. To the planet and to the overworked, underpaid factory workers.

If even one of these brands piques your interest, do yourself and the planet a favour by supporting them in style! Be sure to drop me a comment below if you think I left a deserving brand of this list, let’s try to help as many people as possible.

For now though, take care and have a beautiful day.
