Why to buy: 3WLABEL is a sustainable fashion brand created for women who care about the planet’s finite resources. The name, 3WLABEL reflects the rationale behind the brand’s promise. It transforms the three R’s, Reuse, Redesign, and Return, into 3 W’s: Waste to Resource, Wearables, and Women Empowerment.
Each collection is carefully curated by the founders and is not bound by seasons, but by textile excess in factories. The company partners with Romanian garment manufacturers and uses high quality deadstock to produce limited-edition pieces, which are sold online and on-demand; this is to avoid unnecessary over-stock of unsold garments. All garments are numbered.
What we love: By virtue of its constant need for newness, fashion fosters change. Sustainability, on the other hand, champions garment life extension and encourages material reuse. 3WLABEL positions itself at the intersection of fashion and sustainability. From ethically sourced fabrics to clean lines and timeless color palettes, 3WLABEL strives to please the most discerning customers while staying true to the brand’s values: design for longevity, care for people and planet, and transparency. Each piece is a classic with a twist, presented in contemporary hues and enhanced by practicalities such as pockets. 3WLABEL garments are comfortable, versatile, and eye-catching.
