Just a few years ago, giving anything dubbed ‘sustainable fashion’ as a holiday gift could easily be your one-way ticket to the bottom of a friendship hierarchy. These days, you’re likely to find the exact opposite reaction… especially if that pressie is coming from this sustainable fashion gift guide.
London-bred LA-dwelling content creator and co-founder of Noble Media, Laura Piety, is an expert of all things chic, luxe and sustainable. Her catalyst project — a documentary called The True Cost — pried open our eyes to the realities (and questionable ethics) of fast fashion; her more recent Clean Luxury series gives power the same mission with signature creative force, appreciation for personal style and a keen eye for good design.
We asked Laura to share a few of her fave eco, ethical and ever-stylish picks for this year’s season of gifting and the pro certainly delivered. Peruse her sustainable fashion holiday gift guide below, featuring some of our most-loved local designers (and plenty of ‘it’ girl style points)…

i want that blue sweater…why isn’t IT linked? 🙂
Hi… Any references for the pretty blue sweater? Thx so much. Jan.
Loving these suggestions! The bag and shoes are already on my wishlist!
But of course…the most sustainable way to shop is to shop second hand. Reduce and reuse before you recycle or buy new things!
