Cork: The Ecological Alternative to Leather


I must apologize for my lack of posts lately. Some of you already know that I'm in the process of moving to a different state. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity, but more on all that soon. Luckily, Shivani Patel, the designer of sustainable accessories brand Arture, has helped me out by putting together a post for you about the benefits of using cork in fashion. Enjoy!

How Bags Are Preserving Culture


I'm so excited to have Danica Ratte, sustainable fashion designer and founder of Wild Tussah, as my first guest writer. Due to the rise of mass production, traditional artisan techniques are being lost worldwide. Wild Tussah is striving to save weave cultures by designing pieces for modern tastes and commissioning production from weaving villages that need support. I love the work Danica is doing, so I was thrilled when she asked to speak to you about how handbags are preserving culture. Enjoy!

Ethical Fashion Series: Good Cloth + Giveaway

There is an increasing desire among consumers for ethical and sustainable products and companies are starting to try to meet the demand. There are lots of claims of fair trade and eco-friendly manufacturing, but the supply chain often isn't made available to consumers. It can be difficult and time consuming to research every step of a piece's production journey, which is why I'm very excited to introduce you to Good Cloth, a brand new ethical clothing store whose top priority is transparency!
