Everlane

Updated: Aug 14, 2021



Everlane is a San Francisco based brand aiming to normalize transparency among the fashion industry. Here are 2 features that set Everlane apart from other sustainable brands:

  1. Their Factories tab contains detailed descriptions on how they sourced all their factories. Customers are able to read real accounts from the factory owners, many of whom are women!

  2. Boasting their “radical transparency”, Everlane lets their customers know their exact costs of production for their most popular products in their About Us tab. They even compare their costs and markups against traditional retailers.

Our Favorites


We love Everlane’s versatile Perform Cropped Top! This lightweight top comes in three colors and is an essential piece to add to your wardrobe. It can be styled down as a sports bra with leggings and your favorite sneakers or styled up with a bold skirt and your favorite heels. This top is made with recycled nylon which reduces emissions by up to 80%, or 5.7 tons of CO2 emissions, per ton of nylon produced.

Ethics

  • They have a "strict compliance audit to account for ethical practices on-site" including fair wages, reasonable hours, and environment

  • With this audit, every factory must meet a score of at least 90

Inclusivity

  • Brought in third party companies to help with DEI, including anti-racism training.

  • Racially diverse models but not many plus size ones

Community

  • Has detailed descriptions on their website for sustainability practices but otherwise not much community engagement.
