Safia Minney has long been on my list of ethical fashion heroes. You might know her best as the visionary behind pioneering ethical brand People Tree, which has been producing beautiful garments and advocating for workers rights for 20 years- or you might have been introduced to Safia through The True Cost Documentary.
I've just recently learned of Safia's latest project, a book and campaign titled "Slave To Fashion" that aims to expose slavery and exploitation in the fashion industry.
I'm really honored to share this great post today by my new friend Alma AlFarisi, founder of Kawula Muda. Truly ethical style involves asking more questions about a than just "was the person making this paid fair wages?"
