Rêve En Vert was founded in 2013 by Cora Hilts and Natasha Tucker out of a response to the consumptive fast fashion culture that has been growing all too quickly, and have both taken it upon themselves to move towards a more sustainable lifestyle as well.
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY DOES NOT RELY SOLELY ON OUR DESIGNERS, WE ARE CONSTANTLY STRIVING TO BETTER OUR OWN GREEN PRACTICES. Cora + Natasha
Rêve En Vert is a commitment to a better world via conscious lifestyle and fashion choices and these two fashionistas are supporting designers who are raising the standards within the industry.
These four words guide the ethics in which Rêve En Vert selects it’s brands and designers:
Organic | Natural and Organic materials are sourced with a focus on a low carbon footprint and a garment created to last a long life cycle.
Re-Made | Operating with as minimal waste as possible, recycling and upcycling old materials when plausible.
Local | An appreciation and focus on local communities and economies with some kind of value and practical support of charity and cause based programs.
Fair | A commitment to fair trade principles and a healthy respect for artisans worldwide that create the clothes that we wear. Rêve En Vert checks in on factory certification, supply chain, and fair living wages to ensure a conscious business operation.

MATT AND NAT
Matt & Nat follows a simple motto, “live beautifully”. The brand describes living beautifully as appreciating the good in all of us and has strong values of social responsibility, integrity, and authenticity. Matt & Nat does not use leather or any other animal based materials, instead, they opt to focus on using innovative recyclable materials such as recycled plastic bottles.
I am featuring the black Brave Backpack, made from 100% vegan leather with the lining made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. This backpack has such a cool chic urban look, and I love how soft and comfortable it is to wear, and how easy it is to style with just about any outfit. It also can fit a ton of with enough space to include a laptop, set of clothes, water bottle and lots more! It’s the perfect city backpack and I have been able to replace it with my purse and still feel dressed up.
Baserange creates sustainable chic loungewear, focusing on simple, light accessible garments that perfectly balance modern fashion and the comforts of the natural life. Using high-quality organic fabrics, Baserange is committed to keeping a low carbon footprint, creating clothes sustainably and ethically and designing modern easy basics that will make any women look beautiful while still feeling comfortable.
I am featuring the Orleans Jumper in size M/L. It is a loose fitting sweater with wider arms holes, a a slight boat neck opening giving it a more casual chic look. The knit is very comfortable and easy to wear tucked in, sleeves rolled up or just loose open and free. It’s light enough material that you can wear on it’s own in warm weather with a pair of short or layer it for cooler days. It’s quickly become my new favourite contemporary piece in my closet.
