The Slow Grind is a collection of essays, think pieces and conversations, gathering some of the most formidable voices across the creative and fashion industries, to address the crucial questions of creative, social and environmental sustainability.

The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis
Climate change: it is arguably the most urgent and consequential issue humankind has ever faced. How we address it in the next thirty years will determine the kind of world we will live in and will bequeath to our children and to theirs.
As a fashion brand, we believe in harnessing change through our actions. Graye is reevaluating our current business and design processes and will be changing the way things are done. We also hope to cultivate an open platform to share and learn together with our customers about ongoing issues relating to fashion and culture. This is the first step in bringing greater awareness to important issues such as environmental waste, sustainability and slow living.
