This wonderful Australian Lady, Francis Carrington, sent me information about a great fashion line that she creates in Dharamsala (the home to the Dalai Lama) in the Himalayas. What I love after reading the information on her website is she is an employer who cares about the people who work for her. Her clothing is all Fair Trade Fashion and there are some wonderful stories on the website about how she has helped Tibetans, Nepalese and Indians to create better lives for themselves and their families. It is so lovely to read about the people who actually make the garments and what they bring to the company. It adds the human element that is so often missing in the information that consumers receive. More and more consumers are wanting to make connections between what they buy and how it is produced. I think Francis is doing this beautifully.
She is offering a 15% discount to all readers of Eco Fashion Asia, who check out her website:
One of her main exports is children’s fashion, but she also does a wonderful range of women’s fashion, some men’s fashion and wonderful accessories.
Here’s an article Peppermint magazine did about Francis and Eternal Creation.
