If you're searching for stylish sleepwear and pajama sets that are also ethically made, here are the best sustainable brands. Chic and timeless in design, these slow fashion labels make sustainable PJs that are made to last with comfortable, breathable, non-toxic fabrics such as organic cotton, vegan silk, ethical silk, and linen. The brands are mostly based in the US and Canada, with a few from the UK and Denmark. I note whenever there are options for men, children, babies, and pets.
