One of a kind, handmade, fair trade kimono. We recycled a traditional skirt to make this stunning kimono!
We're helping to make the world a better place by using recycled materials for all of our jackets (these were once blankets, wall hangings and traditional dresses).
Be kind. It's in our nature.
Wondering where our fabrics come from?
India. Our supplier and co-designer ethically purchases fabrics from families who have excess materials such as bedding, wall art, traditional equipment and clothing. Fair trade is honoured throughout this entire process.
Our supplier also supports the wider business community by working with shops who are unable to sell their high-quality fabrics due to damage. This is usually because the fabrics have been unsold for too long and might have some wear and tear. Instead of the retailer being put out of business, our supplier purchases these fabrics and gives them a new life.
Can you tell that the fabric is recycled?
Majority of our fabrics look as good as new (if not better!). They are high-quality, have been washed and well looked after. Some of our oldest fabrics have subtle blemishes however, these tend to only be sold at our market stall so that you can inspect in person before buying.
How are the fabrics valued?
Value is based on the following attributes:
What fabrics are the rarest?
Are all your products 100% recycled?
Our clay earrings and shawl jackets are not 100% recycled. This information is made clear at the top of each product description.
What are the working conditions like?
Our commitment to having the direct relationship with each supplier means that we can personally trace our product from creation to completion. We know what the wage is for all of those involved in making the product and know that it is effortlessly above the National Living Wage. Our production line is transparent and we have a kind and personal relationship with each of the people involved.
Try not to take size as gospel. Please refer to the images as an indication however, some styles look good baggy, some styles look nice if they're fitting - also up to individuality.
