With consumers paying more attention every season to where our clothes are made and how responsibly, brands no longer have the opportunity of sitting out of the conversation. Proactive work in the field is essential and Farfetch’s Positively Conscious scheme is the perfect example.

Farfetch developed a set of independently backed criteria to qualify Conscious products on the platform. The Conscious criteria leverage established and widely recognized standards and certifications on sustainable materials and business practices in fashion. In the criteria development process, Farfetch engaged the expertise of some leading organizations (including Good on You and Sigillum Knowledge Solutions) to provide critical recommendations on the standards and certifications selected.

The Conscious label is earned on Farfetch after the sustainability team asses five key parameters: material composition, material production processes, whole product certification, pre-owned nature, and the brand rating on Good on You. If a product matches one or more of these categories, it's given the Positively Conscious go-ahead.

We took to the Positively Conscious pages to round up some of our favorite items. Ranging from patchwork accessories to rugged workwear boots, it’s proof that every wardrobe can be built consciously.
