not charity, just work

Sarah-Jane and I recently visited the beautifully skilled artisans in Africa with Marion Hume & Simone Cipriani for the Ethical Fashion Initiative, with whom we have collaborated to create The Heading North tote & the On Your Marks clutch.

The craftswomen we met are amongst the most talented in the world. There is a real truth, tradition and honesty about their work.

The initiative combines fashion & poverty reduction, by supplying ongoing work for disadvantaged African communities. This assists predominantly women in feeding, educating & caring for themselves & their children.

Our visit has created a strong and emotional tie with providing work to African artisans as we know each product has empowered many women throughout Africa.

    Admittedly, positioning the news matter prominently in search engines is vital.

    Exposing oneself to some wider target audience gives instant recognition and permits for an raise in sales
    figures. As the internet revolution is convulsing
    fast, number of startups as well as established firms are seeking for the unprecedented marketing and promotional
    techniques in order to be a part of this revolution. A number of press release distribution websites allow you to select
    the day and time that you would like your story to be published and syndicated.
