Fashion Revolution Week 2017 has arrived and with it, this special 7-part podcast series hosted by Clare Press of Wardrobe Crisis, highlighting the stories behind some of our region’s most ethical clothing labels.
The nature of ethical fashion is often tied most closely to the people who make the garments, but it doesn’t stop there. What about animal welfare and environmental stewardship? Farming practices and the biodegradable fabrics?
Clare speaks with Pip Smith of Love Merino – a family-owned label crafting scarves made from the finest Merino grown right on their farm in Wellington, NSW. They chat about the Smith’s holistic management of the land, the way they use a sustainable sheep breed in order to stop any need for mulesing, and also the steps they take to ensure that each step of the process in producing their scarves is ethical and in support of small Australian businesses.
