Summer Sale at People Tree

People Tree was launched in Japan by social entrepreneur Safia Minney in 1997. This fair trade fashion line uses handwoven and handprinted cloth and collaborates with designers like Thakoon, Richard Nicoll and Bora Aksu. In 2006 People Tree launched fair trade on the UK high street with a concession in Topshop's flagship Oxford Circus store in London.

"In order to ensure People Tree fashion meets the Fair Trade principles set out by IFAT (International Fair Trade Association), we work closely with 50 Fair Trade groups in 15 countries. That way, we can bring benefits to people and the planet at as many steps of the production process as possible – growing cotton, weaving, dyeing, embroidery, stitching etc. – helping alleviate poverty in the world's most marginalised communities."
