For the perfect shirt – The Fable
Price range: $$
There is nothing better to wear at work than a silk shirt; they are luxurious, versatile and comfortable.
There are some conflicting opinions on if silk, produced from silkworms, is ethical to wear, but that’s a personal choice (read more here). If you are looking for the perfect silk shirt, that’s also produced in ethically certified factories; The Fable has got you covered.
The founder Sophie has been visiting the brand’s factories in India, and now Shanghai, since the beginning of The Fable in 2015. The majority of the current garment workers are women that have been working in the factories for over seven years. Read more about the working conditions here.
The brand has a wide range of beautiful silk shirts, in a range of patterns and colours, to wear from work to a night out. The shirts are made from 100% silk, which means hand washable only, so if you’re a fellow mess go for a darker shade.
