People: 2/5
Planet: 3/5
Animals: 3/5
Circularty: 3/5
Economy: 3/5

Started by a mother and daughter team, Azaki is inspired by the founders’ time in Africa together.

Pieces by Azaki are designed to become a much worn and loved part of your wardrobe, and the brand’s website discourages the throwaway ‘fast fashion’ culture. It notes that it’s on a sustainability journey, always opting for natural fabrics such as linen, silk and cotton. They have a made-to-order system to reduce waste and Akazi also produce a very small run of garments in a small-scale production house in Indonesia. While they claim to have a close relationship with the production house, there is no evidence it ensures living wage in its supply chain. It’s important to mention that silk has a worse impact on the environment than any other textile, using more water than cotton and emitting more gases. The website does not list sufficient supply chain information about social, environmental and economic impact to give the brand a higher rating.
