I first heard about People Tree when reading a Fashion Magazine called Women’s Wear Daily. The article was talking about how the famous actress, Emma Watson, was designing a line for the sustainable, fair trade clothing line. I’ve always been interested in alternative clothing brands; fashion companies that produce a great clothing line but also give back to people and who are also very socially conscious.
Peolpe Tree works with 50 Fair Trade groups in 15 different countries by helping produce and buy local farmers and artists products to help develope the best product, that also meet the unattainable high fashion standards of today’s society. The company helps the people in third world countries grow the cotton, weaving, dying, stitching, etc. while also finding alternative, eco-friendly ways to manufacture and transport the merchandise. People Tree is based out of London, England and is really growing rapidly as an overall business.
