Series two of our ethical shopping guide features two other brands alongside Hiptipico that directly empower, employ and support women :: Lotus + Luna and Sudara. Shopping ethically does not mean you have to forgo style. Even a plain black tee with a hint of color on the wrist goes a long way: both in style and in impact.
Lotus + Luna: Beaded accessories handcrafted by female artisans living in various small villages in Northern Thailand, providing them and their neighbors with consistent, fair employment. Lotus + Luna strives to see women escape the cycle of poverty that many of their parents have been trapped in for generations.
Sudara: Advocates on behalf of and empower women who have escaped from, or at the highest risk of, human trafficking by providing dignified employment opportunities. Sudara products are ethically-made by and for the benefit of women in India who are working to remain free from sex-slavery.
A quick meeting with our artisan partner Juana and an afternoon coffee is the perfect combination to showing how effortless you can be even when dressing sustainably.
