Ethical Fashion

As some of you may have noticed, for a while now I haven't really had much time to dedicate to Katsai ventures - still pending listing new season pieces in my Etsy shop... and got waaay behind on correspondence :( - hopefully things'll get back to normal soon!

I've also really missed surfing around all the great blogs and sites I've discovered in my time online these past few months.

A new one that I have come across, though, and I just couldn't miss passing on to any "interested parties" is an interesting looking forum called the Ethical Fashion Forum.

EFF define themselves as a "network of designers, businesses and organisations focusing upon social and environmental sustainability in the fashion industry" that aim to "reduce poverty and create sustainable livelihoods by supporting, promoting and facilitating innovative values led business practices within the garment industry".

I'm actually passing on this link without fully reading through the ins-and-outs of it all (...see above lack of time, snif...), but I'm definately going to check this out in the near future, and I hope maybe some of you fellow Etsy designers, crafters and homemade fans will find it interesting!

Note: I found this site following a link in an feature from The Guardian unlimited, that led me to a the web of specialised boutique in London called Equa that, apart from being what looks like a great little set-up in itself, also offers so very interesting bookmarks in it's links section! If you found this interesting.... be sure to check the others out too!
