We were delighted to be involved in Edinburgh’s first Fair Trade Fiesta in May 2014 – the celebration of World Fair Trade Day and of Scotland’s status as only the second country in the world to be awarded Fair Trade Nation status. It was only logical to design the Fair Trade tartan!
But the design of the tartan was just the beginning…… what about using the tartan design to raise some funds for Scotland’s Fair Trade legacy? We had many ideas (some of which might yet see the light of day) but the one we liked best was the idea of a Fair Trade tartan tee shirt, using the design in two ways: as a tartan globe, since the Fair Trade movement is worldwide and the ever popular ‘I heart‘ legend and sourcing fairly traded, ethically produced tee shirts, printed in the heart of Edinburgh. And here they are!
They are available in both adult and children’s sizes and we are, as usual operating the ‘ten per cent solution’ to our sales: ten per cent of our proceeds will be donated to a Fair Trade fund to continue the legacy of the first fantastic Fair Trade Fiesta!
