Stella McCartney was one of the first high-end designers to take on sustainability and apply sustainable thinking in her business. Today, the brand is a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI). The majority of the fabrics used are recycled, organic, vegetarian or what they call “Forest-Friendly”. Stella McCartney partnered with the NGO Canopy in 2014 and made a commitment to ensure that all of their viscose and other cellulose fabrics (fabrics that come from wood pulp) are sustainably certified by 2017.
Stella McCartney is also the world’s leading animal-friendly luxury brand, so if you are on the market for a luxury bag without the use of leather -either for an ethical or environmental reason- Stella McCartney is the place to go!
