By now you are pretty well aware of my love of all things ethical shopping… and one of the things I’m such an advocate for is making ethical shopping online EASIER. SO many people tell me, “I don’t like shopping ethically because it’s feels too hard! I have to go to all these different places to buy different things. There are so few places where I can shop for lots of ethical products in one place.”
WELL GUESS WHAT? My friend Cayley Pater (you may remember her from my podcast – she was a guest early on representing Darzah and Child’s Cup Full!) and her husband Andy just launched MADE TRADE – an ethical online marketplace for the conscious consumer. Cayley and Andy basically felt exactly how I felt – they loved all these amazing ethical brands, but they didn’t find a whole lot of options for how to shop / support those brands in ONE marketplace online that also told the stories of these brands and help increase the impact of those brands. So, they wanted to create a solution and create a beautiful online marketplace to showcase the stories and products of so many incredible ethical brands.
I featured this look in my recent Fall / Winter ethical fashion look book! It has been a favorite of mine this fall as we transition to colder weather (the south can’t make up it’s mind! 40 degrees one day, 70 the next! The kimono and shoes are both from Made Trade and I am beyond in love.
These shoes from Darzah on Made Trade are STUNNING. STUNNING. The embroidered tatreez (traditional Palestinian embroidery) work on the toe is so beautiful, the leather is high quality, the dorsay style is on point, and they are so comfortable! Every time I wear these shoes someone compliments them and asks about them. I love when I get to not only talk about the beauty of a product, but also the story behind them! These shoes tell the story of an incredible culture, a traditional artform that has been passed down, and also the opportunity given to talented women who need a sustainable income.
This Symbology kimono from Made Trade is another BEAUTIFUL piece that I feel glamorous and sophisticated in every time I wear it. It also is just downright gorgeous. The kimono is handprinted by artisans in India using traditional art techniques. Pictures don’t do the beauty and detail of this kimono! It’s also the perfect layering piece to throw on with a dress, a top and jeans, or even a tank and shorts. It can be worn year round!
