People Tree is one of the world's leading sustainable and Fair Trade fashion brands creating contemporary collections for women, men, kids and babies.
A simple idea
For every beautiful garment People Tree makes, there's an equally beautiful change happening somewhere in the world. Think of it in terms of a shoots-and-roots motif, providing customers with exclusive fashion - the shoots - while at the same time working deep down through the roots, improving the lives and environment of the artisans and farmers in developing countries. It's Fair Trade throughout. Simple

How it works
In order to ensure People Tree fashion meets the Fair Trade principles set out by WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation), they work closely with more than 50 Fair Trade groups in 15 countries. That way, they can bring benefits to people and the planet at as many steps of the production process as possible - growing cotton, weaving, dyeing, embroidery, stitching, etc - helping alleviate poverty in the world's most marginalised communities.
People Tree also works hard to ensure that they pioneer ecologically sound methods of production and minimise environmental impact. Not only is most of their cotton certified organic and Fairtrade, all their clothes are dyed using safe and natural dyes. And they source as many products as they can locally, choosing natural and recycled products over toxic, synthetic and non-biodegradable materials.
All People Tree designers - both in the UK and Japan - know how to work within this set-up, which means they can produce garments that are beautiful, as well as caring. So, their collections are all the more special because they make imaginative use of local skills (handwoven fabrics, hand screen printing and hand embroidery are used a great deal), which creates as much employment as possible in areas that really need it.
People Tree has operations in Britain and Japan and is affiliated to a Japan-based environmental and social justice NGO called Global Village, founded in 1989 by British Fair Trade and environmental activist, Safia Minney. In 2009 Safia Minney also set up the People Tree Foundation, a registered UK based charity that supports and campaigns for Fair Trade and sustainability. People Tree is a registered member of the International Fair Trade Association and, proving their credentials as the UKs leading pioneer in ethical fashion yet again, they were the first UK fashion company to carry both Fairtrade and Soil Association accreditation on their designs, with over 50% of the collection made from organic and Fairtrade certified cotton.
