Leopards and Roses: ethical fashion

If you follow my blog, you know I promote SLOW FASHION: sustainable, eco-friendly, fairtrade, cruelty-free fashion. I support small businesses and thrift shops.

I often mention my daughter’s eco-boutique and show beautiful items I have bought at her store Drizzle and Shine in Seattle.

“We’re an eco-boutique in Seattle. You’ll find a carefully curated selection of women’s and men’s clothing, shoes, and accessories. We specialize in items that are kind to the earth and animals and that are made by people who are treated fairly. We donate a percentage of each sale to nonprofits that align with our values.” ~Drizzle and Shine

I was very happy to find an eco-boutique in Fergus, Ontario (closer to home) this summer. Jaboli ll is a Canadian, family-owned company selling ethical and vegan-friendly clothes and hand-made jewellery.

“Leopards and Roses Owner and Designer Anne Toube’s drawings are passionately created and then brought to life. Her concepts are designed in Canada, brought to Nepal and then transformed into handmade, recognizable and wearable fashions.” ~Leopards and Roses

I bought this dress knowing it would take me into fall. Leopards and Roses, 100% organic cotton, fair-trade made in Nepal. I love the design and quality. My long cardigan is secondhand, made in Canada.

“Leopards and Roses. Ethical Fashion. Wearable Art.”

I was not always aware of these important things and now I try to do my part to make a difference by choosing eco-friendly and cruelty-free. Do you support small businesses?

Together we can make a difference for our environment, for people and animals. Let’s make the world a kinder place!

Fashion with compassion!

  11. Hi Carmen, I am glad you found an eco friendly boutique close to home in Fergus ! This is a great transitional dress , will be perfect on its own in summer and the addition of tights and a cardigan makes it great for fall / early winter. I do like to support small business , we can all help one step at a time. Happy Wednesday, Terri xo.

    A beautiful dress, worthy of your beauty. I love the print, where turquoise dominates, that color so yours. I like the game of turquoise and black, both playing with your pink skin and your beautiful blond hair. And as a companion, gray, so that your eyes do not feel alone. And all bought and mixed from your ecological and solidarity criteria. When beauty, elegance and style blend with compassion and solidarity, only something as beautiful as you can appear!

      I always look forward to your kind comments because you are soooo encouraging and we are very like-minded with fashion and compassion! We both appreciate the beauty of style but not at the expense of our environment and the suffering of people and animals.



  17. Wearable art. I like that term Carmen. And promoting eco friendly clothing is a wonderful thing.
    Looking gorgeous.
    Happy Monday.
