Materials: 99.5 Cotton 0.5 Metallic The Facts: At five spinning mills in Tamil Nadu in Southern India, a major hub in the global knitwear sector, 60% of workers were below the age of 18 when they first joined the mill, and 18% were below the age of 15. The Power of Fashion: Ace & Jig partners with experienced textile specialists in India, with whom they work one-on-one to create authentic fabrics using ancient wooden hand looms. The company's Indian partners share its core values and are continuously improving; not only do they provide free childcare to all of their artisans, but they also provide organic produce that they grow using reclaimed water.
Fashionkind wants to change the way you think about fashion. Taking its name from the phrase “fashion for humankind,” this Philadelphia boutique only stocks its shelves with ethical and sustainable luxury designers and artisans, each of which have been carefully curated by founder Nina Farran. The result? Cutting down on environmental impact without having to sacrifice your style.
Inspired by their love for antique textiles and unique patterns, Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson started Ace & Jig in 2009. Ever since then we’ve been finding our own inspiration through the Brooklyn-based fashion line’s seasonless yarn-dye stripes and rad collections of women’s wear and home goods. The designers work closely with their partners in India to create their signature, hand-woven fabrics.
