They also believe that supporting communities by helping them keep alive and developing their craft empowers them both financially and socially.
Partnering with talented artisan communities around the world, Artha produces selected collections of home goods & accessories. With each collection being created by a different community in different parts of the globe, each piece has its own history imparted with a different time-tested craft technique.
In developing relationships with new artisan partners, the founders aim to visit each group spending time to get to know them, their culture and the way they work. By forming long lasting relationships with the groups and producing collections on a continuous basis, Artha aims to offer artisans a sustainable source of income year-round.
Passion Lilie began with a desire to change the fashion industry, so that ethical fashion is affordable and accessible for everyone. Founded by Katie Schmidt in January 2013, the mission of this New Orleans-based women’s fair trade clothing line is to empower artisans in developing communities by creating dignified employment opportunities.
Working alongside production groups that pay fair wages and offer safe and healthy working conditions to their primarily female staff, Passion Lilie’s vision was to create a fun, playful line of dresses with simple cuts that are flattering and easy to wear. Inspired by the Indian hand block printed fabrics iconic to the line, as well as by vintage fashion styles, this new brand offers unique products for those who want to make a global impact while looking effortlessly fashionable.
London’s leading eco-couture bridal fashion house, Tammam offers a delightful range of bespoke and ready-to-wear gowns for the ethically-minded bride. Lucy Tammam, a fashion graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins, created the brand to offer high fashion with a conscience for the discerning fashion forward woman. Classically trained in bespoke tailoring, Tammam’s designs always have a perfect cut and supportive structure. Since its creation the label has designed seasonal high end collections that have been showcased at London, Paris and New York Fashion Weeks.
Tammam has, from the start, created the label to be as sustainable, ethical and eco-friendly as possible. The fashion house ensures that all garments and fabrics are produced under fair trade conditions, all fibres are sustainable, natural (or occasionally if no alternative is available, recycled or vintage), and vegetarian (mostly vegan, while the only animal-derived fibres used are peace silks where the moth is allowed to fly from the cocoon).
"How amazing would it be if we could make life better for someone in poverty every time we bought an item of clothing? Well that is our goal; to make the world a better place and provide you with sweet fashion to look good along the way!"
