For far too long the fashion industry has been ruled by a ‘fast fashion’ ethos. Retailers restocking their shop floors with the latest trends every 4-6 weeks, pressuring us to buy more and at the same time think less. Think less about the impact our latest shopping hauls have on the environment. In fact, the clothing industry is the second largest polluter in the world, after the oil industry.
These past few months there have been major strides forward in divulging fast fashions dirty secrets and I hope this will result in more people starting to consider their purchases with thought and intention. Choosing to buy garments that will last the test of time, items of quality. Clothing like that made by Sammi, the woman behind the consciously handmade apparel brand – Ragtrade Clothing. Ethical clothing has long been my preferred method of fashion. Garments made on a small scale, slowly and sustainably. Last year I stumbled upon Ragtrade Clothing on instagram and ever since I have been following along with Sammi’s work, enthralled with the process behind making her beautiful garments. Read on to find out the story behind every item she creates.
