Last Friday I was excited to see ethical fashion brand Know The Origin* celebrate their first birthday in style – with a pop-up bricks-and-mortar store! Myself and Katie Vibes headed down there and picked up a few goodies just in time for Christmas.
Located at 32 Charlotte Road, EC2A 3BP, their shop is well-placed in Shoreditch: artisanal items, gorgeous handbags, and rail upon rail of well-made, ethical fashion.
Particular items that caught my eye were…
- Nikki Strange‘s notebooks (I’m on the hunt for more ethical stationery at the moment!)
- O My Bag‘s handbags (they are leather, but eco-leather, made from a cleaner and safer tanning process, a reduced carbon footprint)
- Nice Pear‘s handmade ceramics (I’m the proud owner of a boobie plate already, but the hairy mug is next on my list. Such a weird sentence out of context!)
You can visit their pop-up until 17th December, so get your skates on. They have loads of events going on too, so make sure to check their itinerary!
