Sustainable brands to have in your agenda

Before visiting the Sustainable Experience Area, it is important to know a little bit about the brands that will be exhibited in the event. We have visualized them one by one and these are our favorites.

In the fashion category we find veteran brands that are making a dent in the international market, such as Magan Barcelona. Specializing in women's clothing, always knitted, the company already has more than 200 points of sale in Spain. We like their basic designs created with natural materials with GOTS certification, which guarantees that the garments have been created with social and ecological responsibility.

We have also found new brands that we did not know and that have surprised us by their chic and ultra-feminine design. If that is what you are looking for, you will like Ana Ikigai, a sustainable fashion brand with years of intense work that seeks to beautify the women with feelings, women who are alive, a with a conscious aim.

If you are looking for avant-garde, groundbreaking and sustainable design, go to D The Brand, a company that makes clothes responsibly, conveying a positive message of love and hope, for people and nature. The style of D The Brand is minimalist, perfectionist and, especially, with awareness. D The Brand won a well-deserved First Prize for “Fashion, Sustainability and Business”, launched last edition by Momad, Madrid is Fashion. Luxiders Magazine was member of the Jury.

For the most avant-garde, we recommend visiting The13SnakeProject, which was born with the idea that we all should buy a concept: authenticity. At the heart of the project lies a connection between sustainability and design. This Peruvian brand wants to return the value to the ancestral crafts of its country. Urban, different and unisex collections for a sustainable future.

For the most classic, Fil Noir transports us to the culture of Italian clothing, since the history of the brand begins more than a hundred years ago in Certaldo, Tuscany, where the brothers Luca and Lorenzo Manzini took over the clothing factory from his father in 1899. An impeccable craftsmanship, the best cotton fabrics and fair prices are the guarantee of this brand's success.

For those looking for footwear, we recommend seeing the new collection of the Portuguese brand Marita Moreno, which we could see and touch during the last edition of Neonyt. It is wonderful!! The brand cares about the creative process and uses quality materials for durability. We also like Mariettas by MB Mallorca. This company proposes its own designs 100% handmade in Mallorca. Bohonomad, on the other hand, has surprised us by its new generation sandals, antibacterial, ecological, vegan, very comfortable and light.

Jewelry is also important to have. We like Nehcaa Jewelry. The firm creates jewelry with a sustainable soul for men and women aware of nature and human values. The noble metals they use are certified by the Fairmined responsible mining alliance, which guarantees that the miners get a fair wage for their work, free of child exploitation and conflict zones, investing in social development and environmental protection. We also recommend visiting Bamboleira, a Colombian jewelry brand with fashion accessories inspired by the legacy of ancestral traditions, supporting the country's talent and caring for the environment.
