Sustainable fashion: the key Irish players
Irish Times, 18 June 2016
Ethical, environmentally friendly labels are making clothes in organic cotton and silk, and local tweed
In Ireland a growing number of small brands and young designers driven by ethical concerns are creating collections that are also aesthetically pleasing.
This new luxury Irish clothing brand uses ecological textiles and Fairtade manufacture with QR (quick response) coding giving 100 per cent transparency and traceability. Founder Dubliner Denise Thomas, who has a background in graphic design, photography and fashion design, has created a collection of six pieces made from Turkish Fairtrade cotton and a special woven fabric inspired by Irish dry stone walls for which she is sourcing crowd funding. The clothes will be stocked by Om Diva, Not Just A Label and Wolf & Badger.
