All For Everyone ADORABLE VEGAN SWEATER ALERT.

It doesn't say anything on the site about the line being vegan, but it looks like the only material used is cotton, which is awesome! Everything is made by the designer. Not for those of us on tight budgets, though I'm thinking about splurging on one of those cute one of a kind hats.

Be sure to check out sellers on http://efaartistshelpinganimals.org/ - a portion of profits go to animal-related charities. (This month's charity is Farm Sanctuary.) You can search for items from these sellers on Etsy by including "team efa" in your search terms.

Some British companies:

http://www.pantstopoverty.com/
Pants!

http://www.gossypium.co.uk/
The fair trade company based in my home-town. Mostly undies, pajamas and sportswear.

http://www.vegetarian-shoes.co.uk/
Vegetarian Shoes in Brighton. The staff have never been anything but rude when I've been in there, but they have a fairly good range and most of their shoes are made in Europe (so theoretically sweatshop-free).

http://www.gringo.uk.com/
My cousin used to work for them in their Swansea shop. Gringo are a staple of hippy shops all across the land. According to my cousin, things fall apart after a year, but they are quite cheap.

http://www.getcutie.co.uk
I know someone who worked as a seamstress there, so I can vouch that things are made locally. They have a male version called Boy Parker, but that doesn't have a website.

That's really helpful, especially the comments.

ETA. Reasonably-priced, simple cotton underwear! I'm so excited. http://www.bgreenapparel.com
