Finn’s Western Shirt – One Year Later

Finn's western shirt 1

So, you know how we’re always banging on about how well made our clothes are? How they’re made tough and built to last? Ready for any action your children can throw their way?

Last week we received the photo above; our Western Shirt – one year on. As you can see, it looks slightly different to the original (below)

western

It’s faded and has a few tears but it still looks awesome!

This well-worn shirt is the one that was given to skateboarding prodigy Finn, who appeared in our brand film.

It has been put through some serious wear and has come out looking great. It’s still one of his favourites, so we’ve sent him a new one. We’re looking forward to seeing what he does with the next one!

Order one here and let us know what you get up to in yours!

Muka Kids Includes The Fableists in their ‘LOVE’ List!

Mukla

What is muka kids?

muka kids is a social enterprise, whose mission is to empower those who make AND those who wear ethical clothing (and those who want to wear it!), to end the harm done to people and the environment by the clothing industry.

They have four goals:

  1. Make it really easy for everyone buy ethical and sustainable clothing.
  2. Empower women cotton farmers in India with the means to escape poverty and improve their position in their community, by providing them with small loans (microloans) to start and expand their own small businesses (learn more about the woman).
  3. Improve the sustainability (reduce the environmental footprint) created by unsustainable manufacture and limited/single use approach to clothing.
  4. Empower clothing makers to grow their ethical and sustainable products (clothing lines and business practices).

Part of their plan is to sell used ethically accredited children’s clothing.

They recently published a list of clothing companies they love, who are working in line with their goals and The Fableists made the cut! See the full article here.

The Fableists are now in stock at Molmoos in Singapore!

molmoosMolmoos is a stylish online retailer for babies and small children. It was started by three good friends who referred to their gaggle of collective children as the ‘Little Moos’. They knew they wanted to provide safe, stylish clothes and lifestyle items for the Moos; stuff that would also not damage the environment. After struggling to find shops selling the kind of wares that met their criteria, they decided to launch a shop of their own.

The Molmoos web site is divided in to ‘Wear’, ‘Play’, ‘Eat’ and ‘Decorate’ and features beautifully crafted, design-led, practical products – all with a sustainable angle. The Fableists are thrilled and honoured to have made the cut!

Molmoos is Sinapore-based but will also ship internationally, so all you Fableists fans in Asia-Pacific do check them out!

‘Not On The High Street’ to Surprise Mum on March 15th (and spot our Breton in the adverts!!)

Not on the High Street has created some television adverts with loads of brilliant ideas for celebrating Mother’s Day this March 15th (in the UK, anyway!). Look closely and you will spot The Fableists gorgeous Breton Top.

In ‘Tasteful Tea Party’, it’s on the little boy who runs in and out of the scene.

And in ‘The Secret Garden’, the gardener herself wears it.

Don’t forget Mother’s Day on March 15th and while you’re at it, pick up one of our Bretons for your Fableists. They are made from organic cotton and ethically and sustainably produced. And they’re unisex to help you to pass on the top when one child has outgrown it!
