Where can I buy ethical boho clothing?

Ethical clothing has become a trend, but it is more than just an “in thing”. Ethical practices in the fashion industry go beyond that.

Slow and sustainable fashion supports small communities instead of poor mass production practices. At the same time, it minimises fashion waste which is a contributor to much of the world’s pollution. The goal of ethical boho clothing is to produce garments that are meant to be worn over and over again and are made with care and love.

So, where can I buy ethical boho clothing? Cienna Designs carries pieces that stay true to the brand’s principle of promoting slow and sustainable fashion.

In fact, we have been partners with local communities in countries such as Indonesia for over 15 years. Through this collaboration, we help augment their income while they craft wonderful pieces that are sure to last a lifetime. A win-win for everyone!
