Hello Spring! New Collection Online & Instore Now
Ethical designer Tara St James is continuously studying different types of high quality, environmentally friendly and sustainable fabrics. This SS15 collection sees Shirt 1.3, a deconstructable, open back button down. Made up of a patchwork of organic cotton in different textures and weights, it can be worn as an oversized blouse or a cropped shirt.
What is Fairtrade Cotton?
For Fairtrade Fortnight this year we’re sharing the story of People Tree’s organic cotton farming. In it, representative Safia Minney visits their farms in Rapar, India, working closely with farmers to tackle harvesting dilemmas. They also visit the local school that is funded by Fair Trade Premiums—which People Tree contributes to—that has better books, computers, and a superior learning environment for local kids. The video goes on to show water reserves funded by the organization, which helps lessen women’s burdens of fetching clean water.
