    Our creative partners hail from across the fashion landscape and around the world.

    We are honoured to work with such diverse talents as Ilaria Venturini Fendi/Carmina Campus, Sass & Bide, Stella Jean, Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood. Jeweller Chan Luu's clients include the hottest names in Hollywood. Osklen/Instituo-e, Brazil brings terrific energy and expertise. We thank Takashimya, Maiden Nation, 10 Corso Como. Our big brand partners include United Arrows, Macy's, Manor Switzerland and Myer Australia/Hands that Shape Humanity.




    We understand fashion media. We support our designer partners with photography and moving image. In keeping with our agenda to nurture local talent, we work with up-and-coming image-makers in Kenya, Ghana and Haiti. We offer support in terms of press materials to ensure that the consumer searching for stylish ethical product knows where to find it. We have deep connections with international fashion media. We know that product that attracts attention sells, orders increase and all those involved thrive.

    The craftswomen in Africa are amongst the most talented artisans in the world - there is a real truth about their work. The standard comes from tradition and attention to detail that is unparalleled. We couldn't be happier with the final product.
