Our Fair Trade Autumn Winter 2019 Collection Has Arrived!
Our Autumn/Winter 2019 collection is finally here, and we are delighted to be able to finally share it with you.
Inspired by the free thinkers of the 1920’s Bloomsbury set, our Autumn/Winter 19 collection celebrates creativity, beauty and innovation. Discover a palette of warm neutrals and jewel tones, a riot of textures from tactile needlecord to soft viscose crepe, and a new delivery of exclusive prints.
It was hard to choose, but these are some of our favourite pieces from the collection - available to buy now and wear forever!
The dungaree dress
After it’s popularity last year, we just had to bring back the dungaree dress. With practical patch pockets and a modern flared hem, it’s the ultimate in versatile dressing and works perfectly for this trans-seasonal time of year. Wear now over a basic tee with bare legs and layer up in the coming months with cosy tights or organic cotton leggings, merino wool knitwear and your favourite boots.
The first ever Nomads raincoat
We are so excited to finally share these with you! We’ve often been asked for waterproof coats and we always listen to customer requests – but sourcing ethical, biodegradable raincoats took a lot of time and effort by our wonderful design team! After much research and product testing, we are now able to launch an organic cotton raincoat that we hope you will love as much as we do. Crafted from 90% biodegradable materials with a water resistant treated organic cotton outer and a soft viscose lining, this coat will do everything you want it to in the winter elements as well as look great.
Environmentally Friendly Lyocell
Our continuous search for new sustainable and environmentally friendly materials has led us to introduce a new eco-friendly fibre this season. Lyocell is made from sustainable wood pulp, and as well as its green credentials, it has a beautifully soft texture and drape. The lyocell production process has minimal impact on the environment as the trees are grown organically without pesticides and the finished material is naturally breathable and completely biodegradable. The Batik print tunic dress, pleat front top and printed skirt are just some of the pieces made from this wonderful natural fibre.
The Bloomsbury Print
Guided by a sense of fun and freedom, the Bloomsbury print was truly inspired by its namesake, and has to be one of the stand-out prints for us this season. Available in warming tones of turmeric and mocha it will inject depth and warmth to chilly days to come.
Merino Wool Knitwear
It wouldn’t be an Autumn/Winter collection without some super cosy knitwear, and this season doesn’t disappoint. Our top pick has to be the new wrap cardigan which can be worn 3 ways making it a versatile sustainable wardrobe staple.
And for when the chill really hits? We’ll all be wearing the matching merino wool hat, scarf and fingerless gloves!
We only ever use certified cruelty free Merino wool, you can read more about this and the benefits of
