Nice to find a Zurich-based person also interested in ethical fashion. I am based in Zurich and Nairobi and recently launched a line of ethically made contemporary African jewellery through my label Savannah Chic. Do you have any tips on marketing and distribution in Switzerland? Check out the line at www.savannah-chic.com. Would be great to hear what you think! May be we can start an ethical fashion meet up group in Zurich? Not sure how many people are involved in this industry over here though...
Hello there Hannes,
I have been working with natural fibres in Nepal for a long time now and can supply you with fibre, yarns, textiles, as well as finished goods. Please have a look at www.heavenhemp.co.uk and www.wildweaves.co.uk to get an idea of what we do. I work with hemp, nettle, cactus, banana, bamboo . I was wondering if you could advise me on how to find people to work with in your country. Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
