The Joinery & Ecofashion

The Ellis sisters are two very clever ladies who are paving the way for ecofashion in South Africa. I am not usually a fan of stereotypical “ecofashion” (read: ugly clothes made out of hemp), but poor practices in the fashion/garment industries are becoming more and more of an issue and ethical material sourcing and labor are making ecofashion an interesting topic. The Mail&Guardian released an article today discussing the direction of “Slow Fashion” (ecofashion) and highlighting the Ellis sisters and their ecofriendly label The Joinery. Find the article here and see some of my favorites below:
