Who Made Your Clothes? Sustainable Fashion in Australia

A few weeks back we collaborated with the wonderful team from Dorsu, an ethical fashion business based in Cambodia, to put together a night of sustainable fashion. The purpose of the event was to share with consumers about fair and ethical fashion, and the impact of individual purchasing choices for people involved in making our clothes.

We had a variety of products available for sale on the night, including our limited edition Paper Rain tees, as well as our basic tees and bags made with Fairtrade, Organic cotton and jute. We shared our vision of hope and freedom for women trapped by human trafficking in Kolkatta, and how our products are creating real change by providing the women of Freeset with a sustainable livelihood and restoring their sense of dignity.

A big thankyou also to our fantastic photographer, John Xavier Photography and his partner Tara for their beautiful photos capturing our products. Finally, a big thankyou as well to all our Melbourne supporters who came along to support us, purchase our products and hear more about our producers in India.
