Dress-Natural is for those looking for sustainable fashion and want to be transparently informed on the ethical and ecological footprint of the clothes they wear.
We believe that sustainable quality garments can be accessible to everyone .
To do this, we directly buy the best raw materials all over the world, we create the garments with our Italian craftsmen and we make them available directly to you on our e-store, without unnecessary steps in between.
Dress-Natural is a fashion house different from the others because it was not born by making clothing,
but to answer a very simple and important question:
"When is fashion really sustainable?"
Dress-Natural is the result of an interdisciplinary cultural-economic research project that sees us constantly engaged in the study and comparison of the work of sociologists, philosophers, journalists, bloggers, designers, producers and processors of raw materials, certifying bodies, environmental associations, NGOs engaged in the defense of animal and human rights.
Being an outsider allows us to have an unconditional and independent approach, which translates into truly sustainable products, without compromise.
There are people who make a difference, making the world we live in better.
Some have inspired us for years, others are pleasant news.
In common to all, having marked a before and after in our way of thinking and acting.
We pay homage to them with the portraits of our designer Deda.
"There was an old conflict between chemical-industrial and organic agriculture. Now a new one is emerging between authentically organic agriculture, which is based on small biodiversity biodiversity, and a pseudobiological one, used on the monocultures of large farms that show for the export. Authentic organic farming is based on biodiversity, small family farms, local markets and fair trade "

"We cannot face a crisis without treating it as such. We must leave fossil fuels underground and we must commit ourselves to equality. If we do not find solutions to the current development model, it means that we must change it. You have no more excuses and we have little time. We are here to tell you that change is coming "
