Tell us about who you are and what you do?
Ethical Stories Ethical Me is an ethical fashion market place, with a collection focussing on jewellery, handbags, beachwear and clothing. Our names are Shivani and Sameena, and we are two sisters who found a hole in the London fashion market for ethical fashion pieces that were stylish, affordable and accessible. Our aim is to make the world a little smaller by bringing new ethical brands to the UK, and connecting our consumers with the artisans by telling the story behind each group artisans that we work with. Our products are sourced globally, from countries including Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Haiti, India, Kenya, the Philippines and Cambodia. Each product within our collection meets at least three of our ethical badges, which include Fair Trade, trade not aid, eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty free and organic. Through our ethos and carefully curated collection, we are able to empower both our artisans and the ladies who wear our products.
