    Clothing: alternatives

    See our companies data for the best buys amongst mainstream brands. Avoid companies with significant criticisms where possible.
    The table below shows alternative retailers and brands with positive features. Note, some positive features have been grouped together. Please note that the table signifies some items have the particular feature (not necessarily all). Check the label and make enquires yourself to ensure you know the specifics of particular claims.
    Note: Ethical Clothing Australia accredited brands/businesses are listed here if they have a brand and are available either in shops, online or both. For a full list of accredited brands/businesses including manufacturers please see the Ethical Clothing Australia website.
    To sort the table according to the Features (see all listings for a particular feature at the top), double-click on Feature headings (ie. FT).
    Download the table as a spreadsheet here.
