People Tree, a fair trade fiesta ...

As Fairtrade Fortnight draws to a close, I would like to showcase one of my favourite fair trade fashion retailers.

From their early beginnings in Japan is now celebrating 10 years of fair trade in the UK.

The gorgeous designs at People Tree reflect the latest fashion trends. However, unlike conventional fashion, the company is 100% fair trade, supporting communities and helping farmers and artisans live a quality life.

2010 saw Emma Watson as the trailblazer for People Tree, designing and modelling her own collection, and 2011 sees her second collection.  Also in the Spring 2011 catalogue are the beautiful garments made in collaboration with print house Laura Ashley.  Fabulous.
