Pictured above are several of Mata Trader's aritsans. These ladies are from marginalized communities in India and Nepal, and through their work with Mata Trader's, they are empowered. Mata Trader's is a member of the Fair Trade Federation, and provides their artisans with access to health care, education, and fair wages.

We will also be sharing a number of Fashion Love Stories later this week as well! This is one way to celebrate our clothes and fall back in love with our existing wardrobe. Love what you wear and wear what you love!
Use your voice and your power to change the fashion industry. Awareness and conversation is key: the more we talk about the impact that fast fashion has on people around the world and our environment, the more that brands will be held accountable for the choices that they make. As consumers, we have the responsibility of voting with every item we buy. Support brands who share your values and believe in putting people before profit.
Learn more about the Fashion revolution movement on their website here. As always, feel free to ask us #whomademyclothes, and let's keep the conversation going!
