Women play a very important role in the textile industry, particularly in the fast fashion industry. But stereotypically and statistically, women like to spend more time shopping than men do! It is therefore our responsibility to look out for each other and support other females!
This is very apparent in the slow fashion market! #Iloveit! So many Eco brands have been founded by strong independent and loving women who support female empowerment. They even base their values and aims on supporting women and encouraging growth and development.
Here are a few examples of Eco and ethical brands founded by women:
Instead of adding to the vicious fast fashion circle, lets get caught up in a beautiful whirlwind of natural warps... an ethical, recycled and upcycled fashion cycle! Lets join the journey in the right direction!
As well as buying from these awesome brands you can also become a member of Eco and ethical programmes! Check out the London Based ethical fashion marketplace So Just Shop who recently launched their new ‘Founding Membership’ programme to help empower female artisans and stand up for change. #JustJoin
So Just Shop is an online fashion marketplace where talented females from developing countries sell beautifully handmade goods directly to an international market for a fair price. People keep saying to me they find it hard to find places to shop ethically, well this will provide you with a safe place and make this struggle simple for you; you will enjoy exclusive access to new product lines, discounts and seasonal offers and events, plus you help them reach to women in some of the most impoverished societies worldwide! So you can look good, whilst doing good! #itsanobrainer
"our vital support will let us lift up women who currently have no access to the international market. This is a huge opportunity for them to provide much needed income for themselves, their families and their communities. It’s an amazing opportunity for you to be a part of real, sustainable social change"
