Fair Trade Cotton Clothing



For a long period, a number of our consumer habits have actually seemed to have no outcome. It is now quite apparent that there's an instability in requirements of living around the world which can be fuelled by the Wests' continuing short changing and exploitation of labour markets in the so-called third-world.

We do not think anybody who is really aware of what is happening in the world would want to change their backs and help a slave-trade economy.

Becoming into clothing we made a decision to do some worthwhile thing about it. Certified organic, fair-trade garments this is certainly ethically and sustainably created from seed to apparel.

Thank-you for believing in what we do.
