More about treen

treen is a vegan fashion retailer, offering a selection of style must-haves from a carefully selected group of brands that make a positive difference. Living ethically and sustainably is complicated, and knowing how to make the transition from fast to slow fashion can be a challenge. Whether you’re ready to overhaul your entire wardrobe or looking to make just one switch, we’re here to support you.

treen was founded in 2018 by Cat Anderson, a fashion graduate with over eight years experience in the retail and fashion industry. Cat’s transition to a vegan lifestyle in 2015 prompted her not only to reassess what she was eating, but also what she was wearing. treen was born after she struggled to upgrade her wardrobe to match her new lifestyle.

Bringing positive impact fashion to the conscious woman, treen delivers the ultimate curation of product and content through pop-up spaces, an immersive website, and a lively calendar of events. At treen, we want to put a smile on your face. Together, we can create a wardrobe of your dreams without compromising on style. You can look good because you did good.
