Splurge vs Steal: Lingerie
Often times when you think of ethical fashion, you think ‘expensive fashion’. Yet, we’d like to prove that just like any other segment of the fashion industry, there are high and low entry points. So, in our new column Splurge vs Steal we will be giving you a weekly dose of items with the same ethics, and different prices. This week, we are all about innerwear!
SPLURGE: Charini is the embodiment of sexy and ethical lingerie. The Sri Lankan-born Charini Suriyage has made a mark for herself in the ethical fashion arena with her elegant and sensual designs, all inspired by a lost heritage of the country’s finest crafts. Each one of her garments is hand made from luxury-reclaimed materials, woven together with traditional Sri Lanken silks and lace trims. Better yet, her producers operate in certified guilt-free factories in the beautiful hills of Sri Lanka. All this certainly justifies the higher price tag, no? Try the lace body with buttoned front. Bras range $100-$200 whilst undies start at around $65.
STEAL: Have you ever wondered about your panties? Where were they made? How far have they traveled and what was their carbon footprint? Who Made Your Pants produces underwear you can feel good about, all hand-produced locally from sustainable materials within Southampton, England. The company also employs only women who have had a bit of a hard time and need something tangible and sustainable to sink their teeth into. The panties are designed and fit unbelievably well, and the tangas come in sweet colors with great lace working. What’s more, they manage to avoid any vpl. Who Made Your Pants undies come at very reasonable prices, beginning at $20.
