Style Yourself Sustainable
You probably know that the fashion industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world . As a designer I am always looking for the biggest trends – following the catwalks – but I have since realized that all that really will not matter for our future…

Happy International Women’s Day!
On Thursday this week, the 8th March we celebrate International Women’s Day. Since 1909, this has been an annual event recognising the achievements of women and it is now celebrated worldwide. The theme this year is #PressforProgress for women and girls everywhere.
The story of the women artisans at Kanimar and their determination to progess was the main inspiration to start Ethihub. These women are from the tribal Irula community in Tamil Nadu, who are extremely poor even by local comparisons, and have few rights or opportunities. A few short years ago, they began to learn embroidery under the guidance of John, founder of Kanimar. Very quickly, they began to demonstrate a talent for creating their own designs and proudly producing very sophisticated hand-embroidery.
Kanimar needed a platform to sell their products and after some planning, I created this hub for selling products by Kanimar and similar artisans at fair prices to ethically-mined customers. It’s still early days, but the plan, with the support of you, our customers, is to create opportunities for these women and also to support the education of the next generation of girls. Together, let’s make it easier for them to Press for Progress.
Our 2017 Highlights
As we start the new year, I thought it would be good to reflect on some of our 2017 highlights. Since our very recent launch just a couple of months ago, Ethihub has got off to a great start. We have launched our online shop and we have also attended lots of craft fairs around London where we shared our story. showcased our beautiful range of accessories and gifts, and welcomed lots of wonderful customers. A huge thank you to everyone who stopped to chat, shared suggestions and words of encouragement, and bought some of our fantastic products for personal treats as well as for gifts. We particularly appreciated your feedback on how much you are enjoying your purchases.
It was wonderful to meet so many people who shop ethically and support our inspiring artisans. Every purchase not only makes you feel good, but also does lots of good by empowering our artisans.
As we start 2018. we are busy with our plans to grow our ethical hub. We are planning to support our artisans in lots of ways with growing their business, and we are also planning to introduce lots of exciting new products for our customers to enjoy.
As a little thank you, we are offering a generous 20% off all our products in our great winter sale. This is only while stocks last, so hurry and snap up a little treat today. You deserve it!
Have a wonderful year in 2018!
