Maison Orient is an online store & fashion marketplace that is proud to have the amount of sustainable, slow fashion brands that we do and we are so excited to highlight them for you. Here are some sustainable fashion brands you must check out.

Sacred Geometry is an Istanbul-based eyewear brand that focuses on timeless, affordable, and sustainable designs. They use acetate to create their glasses because it is a cellulosic material. This means that the base material is from plants, wood pulp, and natural fibers. Unlike plastic, acetate is hypoallergenic and biodegradable. It is also resistant to a variety of chemicals making it durable, sustainable, and flexible. They also include a beautiful vegan leather glasses case with each purchase to keep the glasses clean and safe.
You are not sacrificing design, quality, or durability with Sacred Geometry as these glasses will last you a lifetime. These glasses should offer you peace of mind that they will eventually biodegrade instead of laying in a landfill for thousands of years.
