Hand made is special

It's always heart warming to receive a thank you card but when its hand made...  .    .       well its special.

Making it to the final: Ethical Fashion Forum Source Awards 2012

A little bit less breathless than an athlete but just as elated to make the Ethical Fashion Forum Source Awards 2012 final.  Cholesburys has been shortlisted as  a finalist with other Ethical designers and brands in the INNOVATION category:

Recognising new talent in fashion design and textiles design, combined with innovation in sustainability terms.

You can read all about it here but the really exciting thing is to be shortlisted along with brands that I respect like Patagonia and people like Orsola de Castro, Saffia Minney (of People Tree), Vivienne Westwood, Katherine Hamnett and sustainable style icons Livia Firth, Erin O'Conner, Lily Cole and Emma Watson all of whom I admire.  So for a little company I am feeling rather good about hand making my sandals in England in the right way.

Winner to be announced on 4th December.
