We're absolutely stoked and privileged to have been chosen as one of the best new and emerging fashion start-ups that are built on sustainable values by Drapers, the leading authority on fashion retailing in the UK.
Drapers have been the leading authority on all things 'fashion' in the UK since 2006...so their opinion matters! This year, their inaugural 'Sustainable Fashion Awards' recognises the strides that are being made in reducing the industry’s environmental impact and creating fairer working conditions across the supply chain. The awards were judged by an independent panel of experts in fashion, retail and sustainability.
Understandably, we are therefore totally humbled to have been selected for the coveted 'Ones To Watch' award, which has been introduced to recognise new and emerging fashion companies that are built on sustainable values, as well as demonstrating signs of commercial viability.
Drapers were absolutely inundated with entries from a wide spectrum of start-ups across the industry: from bag brands to sportswear; high-end fashion; childrenswear and swimwear; as well as multi-brand retailers and marketplaces; and rental start-ups.
The Drapers team have handpicked Warrior Addict as one of the best start-ups to watch. Here's what they had to say about us:
"Men’s yoga label Warrior Addict began as a direct-to-consumer online brand in 2017, but now counts the likes of Wolf & Badger and Yoga Emporium as wholesale stockists. Its activewear is made from eco-friendly yarn lyocell and GOTS-certified organic cotton, while only recycled and biodegradable packaging is used. It has since expanded into a broader range of lifestyle products, including accessories, yoga mats and water bottles. Always striving to do better, the brand has interestingly introduced a pro-planet rating for each of the products that it sells, so that its consumers know how eco-friendly or sustainable each item is."
We are feeling immense gratitude and appreciation for this recognition!!
So, according to Drapers...Watch this space!!
