It's been a while since I last uploaded a post focused on sustainable fashion. To make it up to you, I'll be sharing several conscious outfits in the next few days. Starting with this one! I wore it during my trip to Vieques, Puerto Rico.
This fair-trade dress is colorful, beautiful, light enough for those hot summer days, and handmade by artisans in India using the traditional technique of block-printing (stamping on fabrics with natural dyes and recycled wood blocks). I usually wear a vegan leather belt around my waste to make the dress more fitted. In this case, I wore a belt made of recycled fabrics by the same brand.
MP fair-trade earrings: handmade by women in Colombia using beads and traditional beading techniques. These artisans get paid above average wages and work in human conditions.
