Brand New Items in Stock at The Fableists

Ta-Dah!

Ta-Dah!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks since our launch. We launched with thirteen artist-designed t-shirts on October 29. They have been popular with kids and grown ups alike. We even have a number of adults now roaming around in 9-10 (or smaller!) tees. All of the amazing designs are 100% organic products in accordance with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). They are produced from Indian Cotton, and certified by the Control Union and Soil Association. They have a 90% reduced Carbon Footprint (CO2e) according to the BSI PAS2050 and are certified by the Carbon Trust. The conditions of ethical trade and justice for workers have been audited by the Fair Wear Foundation.

We are very excited to announce that we now have most of our first collection in stock. The denim on the skirt and jeans is dark and heavy – perfect for taking all your little punks can throw at them. They are made for boys and girls and will stand the test of time to be worn by multiple kids. The sizing is generous in both items and each has an elasticated inner waist to allow for growth and accommodate all shapes. The jeans are built a little extra long because we love them with a big turn-up. You can hem them or roll them up but they will allow for that next, inevitable growth spurt.

We also have two ultra-soft and versatile tops:

Our classic Breton features blue and white stripes on a fine, organic jersey cotton.
The Baseball Tee is an essential in any wardrobe. With its red sleeves, it provides a great pop of colour on its own, or under dungarees or a sleeveless dress.

Finally, our Western Shirt is in stock. Its mother of pearl buttons and classic western styling are ultra-sharp for a smart look that still works hard to keep up with #wildtime.

All of these new items are manufactured in India using certified organic cotton. The fabrics are made especially for The Fableists to our specifications and the cotton is grown, woven and dyed by a collective of organic farmers. You can read our interview with Ayan Banerjee, CEO of Chetna Organic here (http://thefableists.com/blog/may-we-introduce-indian-organic-farming-collective-chetna-organic/).

The new items are all 100% organic products in accordance with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). They are also certified by Fairtrade-USA standards, FLOCERT (FLO ID 4512) and SAAS Accredited as SA-8000:2008

You can pre-order the Smock Top, Smock Dress and Chore Coat, which will be here in two weeks.

With the news that we have a launch date established, we will be making some exciting changes to our blog site. The grand opening of our web site on Tuesday October 29th, will mean that the blog will be located within the site as well as at its current location.

Up until now, we have been telling the story of The Fableists. We’ve been sharing photos of the first collection, information about how and where the clothes are made and interviews with many of the people involved in making the clothes and getting our brand out there.

We will still bring you stories about The Fableists and give you special sneak peeks at our new collections but will also take a step back and look at what is important to The Fableists. We will share information on sustainability and design but will also bring you great recipes and activities for families. We’ll look at other brands who are making changes in the fashion industry and do interviews with people who are making those changes. Our blog will reflect what our brand is about: design, sustainability, kids and their families and doing great stuff and having adventures!
