Looking for innovative spinners and weavers

I am working on an income generation project for poor villagers in the foothills of Nepal, creating low-tech, sustainable processes for them to produce export-quality, wild-growing Himalayan nettle fiber for use in fashion products. The goal is to sell the fiber up stream, to an innovative manufacturer and then collaboratively sell the fabric.The fiber is lovely, similar to linen but can be finer and is stronger and more elastic. As we scale up, the social/financial impact on Nepal will be…See More

Dear Ellie,

My name is Laricea Ioana Roman and I am a student at Kingston University, London (KU ID 0942659). I am doing a Master in Marketing, Advertising and Communications and at the moment I am writing my Dissertation. My topic is related to ethical clothing, more specifically, I am investigating how personal values influence customers' decision to buy ethical clothing. In order to come up with some answers for my topic, I need some opinions from people who actually bought ethical clothes.

This is the reason why I am kindly asking you to help me and fill in my questionnaire. It will take you no more than 10 minutes and you can win three books and £30 vouchers!

Thank you for your consideration,

Laricea Ioana Roman
