Dear Jenny,

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!

Hello there Jenny,
About five or six years back, I tried desperately to join Fair Trade here in Nepal as many of my clients at the time thought it was a good idea. I was just ignored here by the fair trade office and the reason I found out was that I was not a NGO. About upto two or three years back, only NGO's were allowed to join the Fair Trade group which was not fair at all and so I trade fairly. I do believe that TRADE and not AID is the answer for countries like ours. I could join fair trade now but am not interested. I do pay my people more than others do and I think I have looked after the physical, emotional as well as the mental working conditions of my group here. Now I am setting up different nettle producing groups in different districts of Nepal and that is what I am involved with at the moment. I understand you have your limitations and have no complains. I still do not think I want to register for fair trade. Take care and thank you for your reply. If there is anything i can do from Nepal, feel free to shout in this direction. Take care,
Udaya

Hi Jenny,
Thanks for commenting. Yes, it would be lovely to see you there if you can make it.
I would definitely be interested in finding out about the fashion show. It looks good.

If you're interested in Ethical Fashion (which I guess you probably are, being on this network) and live in the Bristol area, come on down to Tantric Jazz at 8pm on Thursday 24th September. It's a lovely little Jazz cafe in the centre of Bristol.
We can put some faces to names of others on the network, and generally have some fun meeting like-minded people and drinking coffee (or your preferred beverage). Abbie. x

Hello there Jenny,
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 . Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
Udaya
