If you thought Fairtrade was just about where your bananas came from then you’d be wrong… Fairtrade and fashion are becoming an ever-more important partnership.
Maine New England FIVE G is our range of clothing made from Fairtrade certified cotton and you can feel good when you buy because it supports farmers to give them a Fair Deal.
Take a look at Hollyoaks and Casualty actor, James Redmond, wearing some key pieces from the collection above. We love the green Fairtrade Cotton striped jumper and navy dobby stripe shirt. It’s casual, really easy to wear and the ideal range for your weekend essentials.
Sir Steve Redgrave, who is a big supporter of Fairtrade, recently visited Kutch in India to see the impact the Fairtrade minimum price and Fairtrade Premium have had for the small scale cotton farmers and the local community.
