About me / About business or organisation:
I am Charlie, founder of 'Charlie boots' , an ethical womenswear label selling clothing that is designed and pattern cut by myself. It is UK made by local artisans and all the fabrics are ethically sourced. I use organic, fair-trade, vintage, bamboo and re-claimed fabrics.
I have a limit of ten items per design so nothing is mass produced. The garments are couture-finished with binding so they last longer and this also allows me to make my designs reversible.Two outfits for the price of one!
I now have a shop in Bath (35 Broad street) where I also sell the work of many other artists and designers. We have accessories and homewares for both sexes. The shop focuses on design led products, locally made, recycled and sustainable.

I just had a look at your website, it is great, I love the nature of your ethical fabric sourcing. For my final collection I sourced in much the same way. I up cycled a lot of fabrics that I sourced at Crescent Trading near Old Street in London, I don't know if you have heard of it? If not it is definitely worth a look.
Where are you based? I am currently working on an ethical fashion research project, based at Westminster University. It is an academic role, but I would like to remain involved in creative projects too, and would love to know more about your company.
For me, ethical fashion is the only fashion to be involved in. My email address is email@example.com if you would like to get in touch - I don't know whether I can be of any use to you...
Hi there I'm happy to a friend since I'm interested in knowing about designers and suppliers on the network. I'm starting to include ethical issues within the course I teach on and build links with practicing designers.
Just getting into using this website forgive lack of responses
