I had this idea of producing easy t-shirts for urban cyclists, mainly bike girls who ride bikes as a everyday transport. But I don't have a fashion background and all these ideas hasn't been becoming concrete...until one of my best mates Tomo who has a ethical fashion label called "onagono" encouraged me to print some t-shirts together. I'm a fan of her clothes and very excited to do something with her finally! I drew a bicycle wheel and Tomo provided cute and super soft organic cotton t-shirts. We managed to print some mens T as well, onto good sturdy organic T shirts in pink and green. It has been such fun spending a day at printing studio, getting hands dirty. I'm already thinking of next design.
Have lots of treats everyone!
We went to a Halloween party at nursery. We made little native American head dress.
we received a delivery of hand knitted woolen accessories from People Tree today.
I bet long arm fingerless mitts and matching hats will be very popular. They are all hand knitted by KTS Kathmandu (Kumbeshwar Technical School) support female workers from lower castes system and funds school for their children to be educated. it's an another social triumph story of fair trade products! please read more on People Tree site.
We got these "bambu" home ware.
bowls are coated with lac, all very appetizing hue. some called kiwi and cayenne.
They are made of organically grown bamboo in Vietnam. All from sustainable source, ethical manufacturing and come with very good design. Completely guilt free purchase! I got the feeling these will be standard item at Family Tree.
My snap shot doesn’t really do a justice. Please come by to see and feel yourself!
