Everyday Advocates is a new series highlighting collaborators whose ethical values are reflected in their businesses, hobbies, and everyday actions. We are launching the series with Sam Leigh from eco|mono who talked to us about her path to ethical fashion, as well as the challenges of working in the industry.
Sustainability advocacy requires year-round action, but few people have the time or opportunity to start a blog, work for an ethical fashion brand, or organise a clothes swap. Luckily, there is one small action we can take to become “micro-influencers” among our friends and family.

When Kayla contacted Hanna, Dorsu’s co-founder, wanting to create more gender inclusivity in Atlassian’s swag offerings, Hanna jumped on the opportunity.Kayla’s effort to bring Dorsu to Atlassian is part of a grander shift in considering where our clothes -- all our clothes – are made.
Women dominate most aspects of the fashion industry, from design school student bodies to entry-level jobs, making 70% of the entire fashion workforce. We’re even the primary customers, with women’s fashion growing to $621 billion in annual revenue, a staggering 54% more than menswear.
The term ‘capsule wardrobe’ gets thrown around a lot these days and it seems it’s true meaning is getting a little lost among fashion trends and is being stretched to actually incorporate more shopping, rather than less. A capsule wardrobe in its truest sense, moves through the seasons.
Our team is the most important thing to us at Dorsu. We do what we do because we believe the conventional garment industry is inhumane, unnecessary and in dire need of some serious change. At Dorsu, we want to break that cycle, provide an alternative for both workers and consumers.
