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.

‘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!

An Interview with Fableists Founder Matt Cooper

mattFollowing the release of our animated short ‘The Epic Thread’ (which you can view here), The Mill published this interview with Matt.

The Fableists range is effortlessly cool but also has to incorporate an element of practicality – what are the challenges in designing for children? 

We have never really thought about kids differently. Firstly, we believe kids like clothes (we have four so have some experience!) – but not fussy stuff. Our stuff allows kids to be kids. The concept of The Fableists’ wardrobe is that you can wear the clothes in the city, in the park, by the sea, up a tree, or to Sunday lunch at grandma’s…
