Remake, a San Francisco Bay Area-based non-profit, brings transparency to the world of fashion with its Remake Approved Brand Seal. The seal is the only customer-facing sustainability seal of approval that holistically looks across key areas of impact like human rights, the climate, water, waste, traceability, and transparency. It is designed with expert stakeholder input across foundations, brands, and NGOs.
Remake’s seal is unique in that it moves away from asking “is this product doing no harm to the people who made it?”, and instead asks “is it actually doing good for its makers, and the future of this planet?”
Tired of greenwashing from brands and the difficulty in finding truly sustainable clothing, Remake created a rigorous tool to help consumers find companies they can feel better about buying from. Brands who are run through the tool are given a score between 1-100 with 100 (a perfect score) meaning that they’re an industry luminary, providing a high level of transparency into their supply chain for consumers and offering insight into their social and environmental practices. Indigenous received a score of 70 while most passing brands average 43.
"Indigenous is a pioneer in the sustainable fashion space, having committed to fair trade, showcasing their makers, natural materials and respect for the planet for over twenty years. We are pleased to give them Remake’s seal of approval and have our fast growing community of conscious shoppers discover a brand that matches our values." - Ayesha Barenblat, Founder and CEO, Remake
When customers see the Remake Seal of Approval, they know they can feel comfortable buying from that brand. Other fashion brands who’ve received Remake’s coveted seal include Reformation, Veja, Patagonia, and People Tree.
Indigenous stands out in the sustainable fashion industry with our commitment to always using 100% organic cotton and non-toxic / low-impact dyes or no dyes at all, while uplifting the lives of artisans their families, and communities through practices that go beyond fair trade.
Even better, INDIGENOUS has been named one of Remake's favorites!
"As a long-time player in the game, I appreciate how Indigenous integrated sustainability into their brand from the start. On their website you can get to know their makers and learn about their impact through game-changing sustainable production methods. I recommend checking out their Best Sellers collection for wardrobe essentials that will last you years to come. Pieces like their Boatneck dress and Undyed Cowl Neck Pullover are ones your wardrobe shouldn’t be without!" – Eleanor Amari, Remake Ambassador, Los Angeles
