When it comes to sustainable clothing and slow fashion, it’s often difficult to find brands who genuinely care about the environment. Don’t get me wrong, there are brands who do care, but finding them can be a little tricky.

Over the last few years, we have become increasingly aware of the environmental impact the fast fashion industry is having on our planet; clothes being made quickly, cheaply, low quality, the eye-watering use of resources, and let’s not forget there are some brands that have been linked to unethical practices when it comes to how textile workers are treated. 

With sustainability at the forefront of many conversations, it appears we are seeing a shift away from quantity and starting to embrace quality. If you’re looking for clothing made from organic cotton, high quality, that follow sustainable practices, and care about reducing their carbon footprint – Plainandsimple is a brand I would highly recommend. 


Who are Plainandsimple?

The Plainandsimple business model started with the idea of tackling the negative impact the fashion world was having on our planet. Their passion was to create a sustainable brand where their clothes were designed to last, as well as transparency when it comes to ethical practices within the production process. 

Ultimately, the goal is to reduce waste, giving their customers a real opportunity to make a difference.

The business launched in July 2021.


What makes them different?

They started off with a line of fully compostable and recyclable T shirts made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is a textile processing standard. They’re key features include – Organic Fibres, Ecological and Social Criteria, All Processing Stages, and Third-Party Certification. 

All of their clothing is produced with a lifetime guarantee. When it’s reached the end of its life, you can send it back to them for free. In return, you’ll get a discount for your next purchase. This is a great way to reduce your waste, I don’t understand why more brands don’t do this. 

Since they launched, they’ve had over 60 items of clothing back from customers – this has meant that these items have either been composted or recycled. NOTHING has gone to landfill. 

Since launching their t-shirts, they have also added a line of sweatshirts, hoodies and sweatpants to their range.

By using sustainable materials and designed with no plastic from the fabric to the label, they are 100% biodegradable.


Review Time

The first thing that I noticed about the Plainandsimple website is the transparency; not only the materials they use but their ethical practices too. This information is so easy to find on their website – not hidden deep down in the small print. Whichever product you select on their website, you will find a tab on ethical factories. They only use ethical factories that promote fair labour practices for their garment workers with safe working conditions. They also have a section where the factories are located as well as the practices they follow. 

This transparency was unlike anything I had ever come across before – I was really impressed.

The team at Plainandsimple gifted me a hoodie (medium in grey) and a t-shirt (medium in grey), as I practically live in hoodies, it kinda made sense. 

Delivery was quick with no issues whatsoever, that’s a good start! 

The material is soft to touch, and there’s a weight to the hoodie that I like, it’s easy to tell they’ve been made well. I also noticed the hood part is double-layered; I’ve never noticed this on some of my other hoodies – I like this. 

I absolutely love the fit. The t-shirt and hoodie fit so well and will go with so many of the clothes I already have. I’ve worn both quite a bit before writing this review and they’re comfortable to move around in.

I’ve been looking at putting together a capsule wardrobe, I think these could be a great addition to the pieces I already have – clothes that are good quality and made to last. 

Anyone who knows me will know I would never recommend a product/brand I didn’t like myself and especially one that didn’t align with my ethics. I this brand; I love their clothing; I love their ethics and I love their transparency.
