It's never been more important as consumers than now, to be aware of where we shop from, and how the products we buy have been made. Ever since the Rana Plaza factory tragedy in 2013, it's become everyone's responsibility to ensure the fashion industry we love treats all its workers fairly in conditions that are safe. On the high street, it's still hard to trust the major brands, but remember, they aren't the only places in which you should be spending your hard-earned.
Fikay Fashion is an ethical fashion brand, in every sense of the world, that specialise in the kind of cool accessories you'll want to own including purses, gym bags and even yoga mat holders. Every single product is handmade from recycled materials and not only are you guaranteed that the workers have been paid fairly and that their conditions are good, you can 'Meet The Maker' on their website to find out exactly who made what you are buying. The artisans are mainly women or those who are often excluded from working such as people with physical disabilities, giving them a chance to earn a living. Fikay also donate part of every sale to their charity Fikay Foundation which promotes education and schools abroad.
To celebrate the end of the summer, Fikay are currently running a 50% off sale on selected items - a great opportunity to stock up on gifts and goodies for you, your friends and your family.
