Today it’s time for another fair wear friday! The dress I’m wearing here will surely become a favourite, read on to see where I found 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.
How fair is the outfit this week?
We’ll start with the dress! The bird dress is by People Tree. People Tree is a pioneer for fair trade fashion, they also work with a lot of producers in Bangladesh. I’m a great fan of their fashion and would love to buy everything there. It’s not cheap, so I sometimes search for it on Marktplaats, the Dutch equivalent of ebay, that’s where I found this!
The shoes are from Camper. On Rank a Brand they are rated with the lowest possible score, an E label. That’s such a shame, and this is because they don’t give any substantial information on their sustainable policies. So please Camper, do report to your customers!
Then the bag, well I had planned to not promote Tulsi Crafts too much in these fair wear friday posts, but we were taking photos of this bag for the website, so it was an opportunity too good to pass up. The bag Noor Indigo is made from handwoven jute, fair trade from Bangladesh.
How fair is your outfit today? Let me know in the comments or on social media!
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.
