For the next coming weeks, we are doing a series of posts on Sustainable Weddings, from Eco friendly and fair trade wedding dresses, ethical wedding rings, invitations and wedding registry ideas for those planning a summer wedding!
This week, we are kicking it off with great bridal dresses that are fair trade, ethical and sustainable!
Eco fashion designer Deborah Lindquist creates distinctive wedding gowns using organic and sustainable fabrics such as organic linen, hemp/silk satin, hemp/silk organza. She blends the sustainable and organic fabrics with upcycled fabrics such as vintage lace, beaded wool, and beaded fabrics to create limited edition bespoke eco friendly wedding and special occasion gowns.
Environmental issues are important to Minna and consequently, her label can best be described as Eco Luxe. Each piece is hand embellished and made from sustainable, organic, recycled and locally produced textiles. Her label has in a short time re-defined what ethical fashion should be. Environmentally friendly production techniques including local manufacturing and zero waste pattern cutting techniques are used for every garment. Minna is always looking into any new ways to minimise the impact to the environment. Stylish, desirable and beautiful, Minna’s range appeals to the wider audience, not just ethical.
Sister Organics is a collection of chic dresses made to order in beautiful organic and eco fabrics. They also offer a made-to-measure service and make bespoke occasion wear in eco fabrics.

Pure Magnolia began in 2009 as a side project for owner Patty Nayel who was then employed full time as a Technical Designer. Patty was passionate about living a ‘green’ lifestyle and saw that the market did not provide brides with an Eco-friendly alternative when it came to wedding gowns.
