We know sustainable winter coats are not always affordable. thegreenlabels holds affordability as an important part of the sustainable fashion revolution so if something is pricy is should be worth it. For us the labels and products mentioned below are high quality and team members have also invested in some sustainable coats because we truly love them.
We talked about “cost per wear” on our Instagram before. It’s a topic in sustainable fashion where you consider how long you can wear a high-quality item and then realise that it might even result in you spending less over time. Especially true for higher price items like coats or shoes, where durability matters. In this post we calculated the cost per wear for each coat assuming you wear it for 5 years and for a full winter (3 months). This is of course an estimation only, but proves how much you can get out of these amazing sustainable coats!
Here is our selection of the best sustainable coats:
Embassy of Bricks and Logs
This green label is from Berlin, Germany and the city’s streetwear style is reflected in the coat designs. Thus, their Credo: Design first. “We want to make a great product that wins people over.” Then, make this product as sustainable as possible without compromising on quality. The result is high-quality vegan winter coats made from recycled and vegan materials with clean processes. We love that this brand supports ethical production and is transparent of their supply chain! We have proof that these coats will keep you warm even in -20 degrees and the water repellent surface protects those of us in countries with rainy winters. They are not water proof tho, so you will get wet after a long exposure in the rain!

LangerChen was founded in 2013 by a German man and a Chinese woman LangerChen is the contraction of both of their name. Majority of the sustainable coats are made from 100% organic wool, did you know that boiled wool is also water repellent? Yes you heard me right! The wool is treated with non-toxic processes to be long lasting, breathable and water repellent! Fair working conditions, the lowest possible ecological footprint, and high-quality products have played a major role for LangerChen from the start.
