What to buy and what to look out for from the best sustainable loungewear brands.
Lockdown 2.0. How are we all feeling? Whilst we’re confined to the sofa once again, we may as well do so in style and comfort in a bid to ever so slightly alleviate these strange times and the emotions that come with it. We also need to continue to support independent businesses at this time who are practicing ethically and sustainably. Whether it be a long dog walk with your favourite podcast or you simply want to bake that lockdown banana bread in a hoodie that feels like a giant cloud, then let’s do so with our consumer conscious intact.
With that said, let’s get into five small companies who currently have some fabulous loungewear for sale, all of which produce their garments in the kindest way possible.
And as an added note…
When buying from companies, always read the reviews and their sustainability notes. You can also check Good On You to ensure that the brand is transparent and that they’re not greenwashing you. Other than that, happy shopping!

The oh-so chic and luxurious Linen Kimono Robe is the perfect way to stay cosy during this winter. The robe is handmade in Portugal and the linen yarn is ethically sourced from a family-run business in the North of France. The robe comes with a plastic-free linen travel bag and the fabric is natural in colour to eliminate using harsh dyes.
Their organic cotton kanga-pocket hoodie is oversized and oozes comfort. It also comes in four different colours and is the perfect throw-on piece to warm up on the sofa and watch a cosy movie. The cotton is grown on organic farms with excellent working conditions. The name for the brand came from the 90% of profits that they distribute across different charities. Amazing!
Wearth London have an array of very reasonably priced ethically and sustainably made pieces. Their origin Africa organic tees are a fun twist on the classic white tee. They are made from 100% organic cotton and are coloured with water-based vegan dyes. They are available in both black and white and a percentage of the sale goes towards helping enterprises in Africa, including projects supporting child health and female education. Get involved!
Another tee, this time giving off French girl vibes. Nude Ethics make fun and illustrative tees (along with other beautiful garments) that can be dressed up or down. This organic tee in the colour sand would go perfectly with some comfy joggers and your favourite blanket. It is made from 100% organic cotton and the thread is made from wood fibre. A great way to support a small and independent business.
