Karen Walker joins ethical fashion initiative

Designer Karen Walker teamed up with the UN’S Ethical Fashion Initiative and asked Kenyan artisans to make screenprinted & beaded pouches for her Summer 2014 eyewear collection.

The Ethical Fashion Initiative connects the fashion industry with artisans in Africa and Haiti. The idea is to embrace the skills of artisans and make sure that every employee earns a decent wage. 

"Our overarching goal is to empower women. We do this by creating work. By earning a regular income, women can improve the circumstances of their families and their communities. Our production is 100% ethical with a strong focus on environmental protection"

Great work Ethical Fashion Initiative

We hope more influential fashion houses will follow!
