Our sustainable brand partners are committed to responsible sourcing and intentional design that creates minimal negative environmental impact. Some of their methods may include sustainably harvesting raw materials, upcycling/recycling used materials (such as plastic or dead stock fabrics), or using all natural, earth-friendly materials (such as plant and mineral-based dyes).
At Made Trade it's not enough for a product to just be "USA made" it must also adhere to responsible sourcing of materials used and fair treatment of the person who created it. We curate USA made brands who: pay fair, living wages to their makers, provide safe and healthy working conditions, source materials locally wherever possible, prioritize sustainable growth for their business, and implement eco-friendly practices.
Vegan products on Made Trade contain no animal products or byproducts. We curate vegan brands who source natural materials as sustainably as possible, do not use polyurethane or other synthetic faux leather materials (instead use plant-based faux leathers, such as Piñatex or mushroom leather) and implement fair business practices with their suppliers and their employees.
