About Ethical Sustainable Clothing & Why It Matters
The words eco-friendly clothing, ethical sustainable clothing, ethically-made clothes, and all of their variants are quite popular right now, but what do they really mean?
In essence, the root of sustainable clothing is producing unique pieces that use recycled materials for their confection, such as recycled Nylon, a combination of old scraps of fabrics from other clothes, or any other type of material that does not contribute to polluting the planet due to the result of mass-produced items.
Fast fashion is what ends up contaminating the oceans and landfills because of the huge amounts of fabric and plastic waste that get thrown out during the process.
Buy Less, Buy Better
Eco-friendly clothing has many perks worth mentioning, and the one at the top has to do with the quality of the clothes you’re purchasing.
Fair and ethical fashion not only involves caring about the environment but also providing people with high-quality and durable items that they can wear many times without losing their color, texture, and composition in general.
Koraloha is widely aware of the consequences of fast fashion that are affecting our surroundings, which is why we’re proud to produce each and every single item fair and ethically.

When we say we make ethically-made clothes, we mean it. Our manufacturers offer excellent working conditions for their team, including a healthy, safe, and respectful place found in Bali, close to our founder’s heart.
