Turtlenecks for the Conscious Woman

As with shopping any ethical clothing, being able to discover and shop conscious fashion brands while ensuring they are aligned with your values can be tricky. But don't fret, we've got you! At People Heart Planet, we vet and verify every single brand we partner with to ensure they meet your standards of social and environmental responsibility. You can read more about our vetting process to understand how we verify the brands we work with. 

All the brands and products we aggregate on our site are from either fair trade or sustainable fashion brands and responsibly made home goods brands that do business with the welfare of people and planet at the top of their agenda. 

Here is a list of the best ethical and eco brands for turtlenecks to keep you cozy in the cool weather. 

You can layer it under a sweater, dress it up with a midi or maxi skirt, ankle boots and statement jewelry; or wear it to work with a high-waisted skirt or pants, a blazer and heels for a professional yet chic look.

ABOUT: KOTN is a Canadian based, ethical clothing brand that makes high quality essentials from authentic Egyptian cotton grown in the Nile Delta. Even though Egypt’s white gold is finer, softer, and more breathable than any other cotton, big corporations are going with cheaper options leaving millions of farmers, weavers and craftspeople struggling. That's why KOTN makes their our own fabrics from raw cotton bought direct from farmers in Egypt at guaranteed prices. KOTN manufactures in a cut-and-sew factory outside Alexandria that ensures a fair wage. Also to stop the cycle of child labour, KOTN partners with pro-literacy organizations in the Nile Delta.
