We want work with Brands, new or established to ensure that your whole supply chain from the fields to the factory is ethical, sustainable, transparent and Fair Trade. We believe that every Brand, be it in Fashion, Homewares or Lifestyle needs to integrate this into the supply chain now – it’s what is going to make Brands stand out and be different to start off with and then ideally it will be become the norm. It’s essential for our planet, people and in turn profit.

 

We’ve worked within the Fashion, Lifestyle and Homewares industries for over 15 years, buying and sourcing for the fast-paced mass market  through to the “slower” paced individual Designers, Craftsmen and Artisans. We understand and can see what is happening in the industry – or in the case of the Fashion industry, sadly not much and there is a major need for ethical change and we can work with you to do this.

 

Customers are understanding and starting to demand for quality over quantity and ethical products versus simply more product, we as the industry need to take responsibility of the whole of our supply chain and ensure that we can offer customers the sustainable products that they are desiring.
