Hi. I am also an ethical childrens wear designer/maker. I live in Telford Shropshire and have been running 'raw' for 13 months now. I am feeling a little like giving it up at the mo because i am unclear about which direction to take next. I have a theory that "money makes money" and because i have very little of the stuff, i can not do what i need to do!!! How frustrating when ur a highly creative and passionate about the environment kinda person.. :0( How are you doing with your business?? Any ideas or words of encouragement would be greatly Good luck with your venture.

Hey sian!

Woops sorry I just noticed this comment part of the EFN! But so if you decide to try and have a social next month that would be great! Once you figure out a date let me know and I'll definately try and get some of our members to come along! Hmm I dont think there will be more than about 5-10 ppl though if thats ok?
And yep, joining the cov society sounds like a good idea!

Hello there Sian,
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 and to get an idea of what we do. I work with hemp, nettle, cactus, banana, bamboo . I also have a small workshop where we make bags, clothing and rugs from natural fibres. Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
