Business Essentials for Ethical Fashion Designers

Build the business your brand deserves.

- Cat, Founder of SewEthico

SewEthico strengthens the foundation of women-run businesses on a mission.

Women who are building businesses that are bigger than themselves are focused on helping the world succeed. We’re focused on helping them succeed.

We fuel the fire of ethical brands with the goal of creating a more stable and sustainable path for ethical entrepreneurs to expand their businesses and compete in the mainstream market. By growing the strength and number of ethical brands in the marketplace, more ethical goods and services become available and accessible to consumers, and your business has a higher chance of long term growth.

Fashion is part of our everyday life. It's a simple decision we make each morning: get up, get dressed, get out the door.

But what about the people who make our clothes, the chemicals in our fabrics, or the natural resources the fashion industry uses in order to flood the market with inexpensive goods?

We imagine a world where ethical brands have a larger market share, so that ethical apparel is more accessible for consumers, and we can all use our everyday decisions to make the world a better place.

You started your brand to solve a problem — don't let the challenges of business keep you from succeeding.


SewEthico welcomes and encourages participants from all backgrounds. Gender, orientation, language, religion, politics, hair color, eye color, those who color inside the lines, and those who don't even see lines — we welcome it all. We want to make the world a better place and part of that relies on the opinions and attitudes of people from all walks of life. We have a zero tolerance policy for discrimination, and urge all community members to respect one another's values and opinions.
