Today is not only fair wear friday, but also warm sweater day (in The Netherlands). I feel the cold and don’t like turning up the heating, so for me it’s always warm sweater day. Except maybe for sweltering summer days 😉 Adding to that I’ve just bought this great sweater, so let me tell you more about it.
Once a month I participate in ‘Fair Wear Friday’ on this blog. On the other Fridays I’ll let you know on Instagram how fair my outfit of that day is, so follow us there as well.
It’s very important to me to buy clothes that are made as fair as possible. I’ve seen the enormous size of the textile industry in Bangladesh, and the huge impact changes can have on many lives. That’s the same for many other countries of course. Still it’s challenging to find fair fashion, and I always ask myself the question what’s acceptable for me and what isn’t.
To inspire all of us, several bloggers have started Fair Wear Friday. A great initiative that has given me a lot of good ideas. Take a look on the blog (in Dutch) Villa Lisa to see who’ve joined Fair Wear Friday.
How fair is the outfit this week?
Let’s start with the sweater! It’s secondhand, bought at Ruby Lee and the vintage factory, a wonderful vintage shop in rotterdam. This woollen sweater is originally from Austria.
De shoes are from Think!. With Rank a Brand Think scores a D, not very good unfortunately. Think does give the impression of being quite sustainable, so it would be great if they could report more precisely about that.
How fair is your outfit today? Let me know in the comments or on social media!
