I want Tall Fashion Adventures to be your go-to for information on responsibly and ethically made clothing for tall women! Since 2016, I have been more thoughtful and curious about where and how my clothes are made and these two things drive my purchase decisions. I hope to inspire the same curiosity and thoughtfulness in you! If you’re interested in learning more about about my journey to thoughtful shopping, check out this post. Since I already have lists for where to shop for tall clothing, for larger sized shoes and for custom-made clothing, I figured it was high time I put together a list specifically for tall ethical clothing and shoes. Bookmark this page as I will be updating it often and be sure to read all the way to the bottom to find brands that will be launching soon! Also, join my newly created Facebook group Tall Ethical Fashion to continue the conversation!

Height of Rebellion – Here is what the founder of this brand had to say about her plans for responsible manufacturing. “Our clothing will be made in the US in ethical clothing manufacturers and we will be using environmentally friendly fabrics. When choosing a good manufacturer you always want to personally check the conditions the works are working in. Luckily I already have a long relationship with few of the manufacturers we are working with from my extensive years in the fashion industry. One of the most fun parts of designing our collections has been finding the perfect eco friendly options for fabric. The Fashion industry produces a huge amount of waste each year so as a new company we want to make sure we are doing our part from the start to be eco friendly.”
