For the next 4 weeks I'll be on a family holiday in Italy (yay!) so won't be blogging during that time.
I will, no doubt, be scouring the beautiful country side for Italian made fabrics (don't tell Hubs, he doesn't know yet!). Finding locally made fabric is part of my commitment to only buying ethically made / produced fabric. You can read more about that in my previous post "Dear Fabric, Where do you come from".
For those who don't sew and/or are wanting to make ethical purchases in ready to wear clothing I suggest you check out the lovely Beth at Tall Fashion Adventures and read about her commitment to buying ethically made clothing (link here).
During Fashion Revolution week last month I felt even more inspired to pursue my goal of only buying ethically produced fabric (and clothing, but I buy very little clothing). To be honest, I felt a little high and mighty because I was already doing this... wasn't I special?! Then I saw this post on IG from @fash_rev_ausnz which knocked me right off my high horse:
I have been guilty of buying cheap fabric of unknown origin in the past. Just as I have been guilty of buying fast fashion; cheap, nasty and not built to last.
However, now I know better and will not do so moving forward. Are you with me?
