Just wanted to stop in to let you know about a special offer from custom clothing site, eshakti. I first reviewed eshakti at Thanksgiving. I received some good feedback from readers on that post regarding their production standards, which I encourage you to read here.
Eshakti guarantees that they have their employees’ (primarily women in India) best interests in mind and that they both pay 50% to 100% over minimum wage and routinely inspect their facilities. They recently updated their website to include more contemporary styles and easy-to-shop themed categories based on current trends. They also offer custom fit options at reasonable rates above the base price. I opted to change the sleeve length on my little black dress last fall, but in the future, I think I’ll try full custom!
I like the look and feel of the updates and am finding that a lot of the newer styles appeal to me much more than previous selections. They’ve definitely embraced the graphic and minimalism trends and, though I’m not going to turn into an Everlane model anytime soon, it’s hard not to be influenced by it, so I think it was a smart move for eshakti. It feels to me like they’ve narrowed their selection, too, which makes the site more manageable to peruse.
Eshakti is offering a $35.00 discount for Style Wise Blog readers. Just click the code below to enter the site and make sure to enter it at checkout. Note that if you use my custom code, I’ll get a bit of commission on the sale (which would be groovy!).
I feel like I’ve been manically posting about brands all month, which is both wonderful and overwhelming. I had some time to work on a longer form post that I hope will be helpful for those interested in diving deeper into the conscious consumerism discussion. It’ll post Monday morning.
