Ethical Fashion Initiative

This Autumn-Winter, Vivienne Westwood celebrate 10 years of working side by side with the Ethical Fashion Initiative of the International Trade Centre, a joint agency of the United Nations and World Trade Organization. The Vivienne Westwood collaboration with the EFI through Artisan | Fashion, the first of its kind and a ground-breaking social enterprise, has facilitated collaborations with local artisans, initially in the Kibera slum, and now across Kenya, Nepal, Burkina Faso & Mali, with the aim to provide a sustainable stream of work, in place of charity.

To mark this special milestone, a limited-edition tote bag and bucket hat have been created by the artisans in Kenya, with each piece screen printed by hand with the Westwood art and culture manifesto graphic “Mirror the World.” The graphic features doves and hearts in white, on vibrant scarlet 100% East African cotton canvas and is finished with a special 10 Year Anniversary Westwood postal stamp.
