Ok. So I have this obsession for bags. It is nothing less, I tell you, than a real genuine Obsession with a capital O. There is always a good excuse to buy a bag. I love them in all forms and sizes, from simple tote bags to the real expensive ones to the fair trade ones made with respect to our environment. I have to say that I am becoming more and more conscious of fair trade ecofashion and I highly appreciate these initiatives. Nothing is so important than our environment and it is high time we take into consideration the footsteps we set on this earth. An ethical bag is even better than a normal bag, I tell you! Recently I discovered these two Dutch brands who are both producing clothes and accessories with respect. The first one is called Studio Jux and they make the most thrilling fair wear. The second is Philomijn, a leather brand that makes the most beautiful leather products. As of next season her products are also completely made with ecological leather from German cows who have had an animal friendly life. She also uses natural dyes like rhubarb and mimosa for colouring.
Her bags are truly beautiful. I am so glad we are all (producers and consumers) looking into ethical fashion and embracing it. Let’s start a revolution!
