Katherine Hamnett

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

U.K. based Katherine Hamnett is one of my heroes. When I used to spend more time in England back in the 1980′s, Katherine Hamnett’s social activism was in the news all the time. She wasn’t afraid to speak up about issues that were important to her, using her line of hip t-shirts as a way to spread her message. Her slogan t-shirts became part of a movement to affect change. She was a humanitarian and pacifist before I knew you I was one too.

I love that she manufactures her own line of clothing just so she can be as ethical & and environmentally responsible as possible, which also includes a line of ethically & environmentally mined gold and diamond jewellery.

Her humanitarian works extends into Africa, where she has championed farmers to trade their way out of poverty by encouraging them to grow cotton organically which has in turn made these farmers so much healthier as well.


Katherine Hamnett is a true inspiration to us all and may her messages of peace and love spread across the world.

Sunday Out at the Fleamarket

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

It was overcast and cool this morning, which was perfect for walking through the Fleamarket, a surprisingly great place to be Eco. Recycling, repurposing and reusing is what a Fleamarket is all about :) I saw many fabulous things that either I don’t need or have room for but I didn’t go home empty handed…Here are some of things I liked and may or may not have bought:
