Embracing Slow Fashion and Rejecting Capitalist Pressures

In today’s fast-paced world, driven by capitalist expectations, there is a constant push for instant gratification and relentless production. This culture of immediacy often comes at a significant cost to both the environment and the well-being of workers. At For Everyone Collective, we consciously choose to reject these norms in favor of a more thoughtful and sustainable approach.

We understand the pressures of always producing and meeting instant demands, but we believe that true value comes from slowing down and respecting the natural rhythms of life. Our extended turnaround time of 10-30 days is a deliberate decision to ensure that each item is crafted with the utmost care, honoring the principles of slow fashion. This not only minimizes waste but also ensures that every piece we print is meaningful and cherished.

This is also a commitment to the mental health and well-being of our team members. We refuse to subject our team to the relentless demands of fast fashion production schedules. Instead, we prioritize their mental health, allowing them the space and time needed to create without undue stress. This approach fosters a healthier, more creative, and ultimately more sustainable work environment.

As a collective, we must all move slower and value the earth. By rejecting capitalist ways of being, we can create a more balanced and equitable world. Our approach to fashion is a small but significant step in this direction. We encourage our community to join us in this journey, embracing the beauty of slow fashion and the profound impact it can have on our planet and our lives.

Thank you for being part of our collective effort to create a more sustainable and thoughtful fashion industry. Your support means the world to us.
