Amour Vert (the name means green love in French) is equally a fashion-forward and a sustainable apparel brand. Amour Vert partners with various USA based fabric mills to directly create their own eco-friendly textiles, and thus minimizing the negative environmental impact of both the fabric manufacturing and the garment creation. Some of these environmentally responsible textiles that Amour Vert uses in their apparel line are: zero-waste Paris Rib (Modal) fabric that is made from FSC-Certified beechwood in a closed-loop process, organic Cottonseed Cupro (a vegan silk), femme fête (an organic cotton, linen, and modal blend), and upcycled/recycled fabrics.
Amour Vert’s website sells items from both their own brand and from ethical partnered brands like: vegan leather handbags created from recycled plastics from JW PEI, upcycled jewelry pieces from CastleCliff, vegan-friendly leather jackets manufactured from organic cactus leather as well as sustainable leather jackets made of recycled leather from discarded and old garments from Deadwood, plant-based and hand-dyed organic cotton scarfs from Dear Indigo, and many more. Amour Vert does not just use eco-friendly fabrics but also only uses soy based inks and packaging made from recycled materials, that is 100% biodegradable.
Furthermore, Amour Vert efficiently utilizes sustainable planning by not overproducing the same garments and ensuring limited quantities. As well as, creating fashion items in universal sizing that allows one-size-to-fit-all for as many styles as possible. Both of these techniques greatly reduce the amount of clothes needed to be manufactured, while also decreasing the amount of clothes that will end up in a landfill. Ultimately largely diminishing this brand’s carbon footprint. Additionally, Amour Vert plants a tree in North America for every t-shirt sold together with the non-profit American Forests. Jointly they have planted over 300K trees throughout the United States.

Amour Vert produces 97% of their products in California, USA, just around the corner from their San Francisco office. Amour Vert works together with six different small-scale factories in northern California, many of which are all female owned and operated.
The proximity of these local factories allows for routine visits to ensure adequate wages are being paid and employees are being treated correctly. Amour Vert equally pays frequent trips to the fabric mills they collaborate with as well as following and examining their other suppliers in their supply chain.
Amour Vert’s partnered brands likewise, faithfully follow ethical and sustainable methods. Each specific item on the Amour Vert Website, whether their brand or not, shows full transparency and states exactly where it was generated (sometimes even which factory made it exactly).
Amour Vert is not a vegan company. While this brand sells many items made from eco-friendly and vegan fabrics like: Cottonseed Cupro, Modal, Tencel, and organic cotton; it also offers merchandise that contains non-vegan materials such as: leather, wool, and silk. Amour Vert, however, does not use any: animal fur, down, angora, or exotic animal skins.
