“Bold zero-waste women’s apparel”

A lot of people think that caring about the environment is what makes a company sustainable. However, we cannot talk about sustainability without talking about the people who make our clothes. Not only are clothing makers often exploited but they are also the most impacted by the environmental destruction of the fashion industry. Tonlé has shown that they care about how their workers are treated, making sure their production does not negatively impact surrounding indigenous communities, as well as the environment. Tonlé offers a wide selection of apparel for women, from tops to dresses to outerwear that you can be sure come from good practices.
