Created in 2009 when the Ethical Fashion Forum launched its Spotlight on Sourcing initiative, it includes all the presentations and notes from the Spotlight on Sourcing seminar and workshop series.

There is a discussion forum here for each of the topics that were covered, from working with co-operatives to sourcing from different regions in the world.

Hi All,

I'm looking for ethical and fair-trade manufacturers and suppliers interested in expanding their business in the far east by participating in the Blueprint trade fair in Singapore this summer. This is an exciting opportunity as I have a lot of eastern designer's who are interested in outsourcing to green factories in South East Asia. Can the interested parties please mail me on asap?

Hello, I have imported from US-based hemp/eco fabric company Enviro Textiles their big set of 51 fabric samples from their main collection... everything from colourful silk charmeuse and hemp twill to hemp & organic cotton mixes... see their website for more info. These samples can be bought online via Offset Warehouse http:// which has the full list of main collection available.


I also have Enviro Textiles 'close-out' sale sample selection (see their website) for photos... some very pretty fabrics in the sale!


Including import duty and postage from US, this cost me £35. I will happily sell it on (as I've chosen my order) for the reduced price of £25 inc UK postage. Payment via paypal please.


Best wishes, Helen
