Gloves & Slipper Socks
by Trading for Development
Trading for Development demonstrates how ethical business practices and high quality fashion can help to support some of the poorest communities in the world. Linking the producers in these communities with leading fashion houses and top fashion universities, we encourage the growth and appreciation of traditional skills, and promote the marketing of fairly traded products worldwide.
TFD makes use of the wide range of traditional skills available to fashion designers around the world to supply desirable, luxury items such as alpaca knitwear, accessories and jewellery. Our products often use traditional craft techniques, as well as natural fibres and dyes that minimise damage to the environment. By only working with World Fair Trade Organisation members, we can ensure that all of our producers are certified and that there are no missing links in the supply chain.

by Nancy Straughan
Established in 2011 Nancy Straughan Printed Textiles produces beautiful homewear and accessories crafted from her own range of organic printed fabrics. Nancy focuses on combining classic sophistication with uncompromising attention to detail with each print collection and product. Inspired by the motifs seen in Scandinavian and 1950s textiles she creates simple and refreshing contemporary products for you and your home.
Sustainability is at the heart of what Nancy creates. Each pattern is printed onto ethically sourced textiles and every single product is made in England. Rather than letting the designs follow trends each print and product is created thoughtfully to last for years to come.
Nancy strives to be as transparent as possible with regards to sustainable and eco friendly practices. The desire to live and work in a way that is kind to the earth has led to many positive choices for Nancy, everything from the inks and fabric chosen to print with to the packaging of your items are all as eco friendly as possible.
