5 Places to Find Stylish, Affordable and Ethical Sweaters in Prague
It’s winter in Prague and well, it can get cold. We’ve had a few people ask us where to find winter sweaters that are stylish, affordable, ethical and eco-friendly.
It’s a valid question. Though at first glance it may seem that something as innocent and fluffy as a sweater could do no harm, we have in fact learned that the fashion industry has a dark underbelly, both when it comes to social and environmental impacts.
Our stance is that no consumer decision is too small or insignificant to potentially have an impact. So before we buy our next sweater, or any item of clothing for that matter, we will surely think twice. Below are some good options, with something for every price range.
