Featured Book – Slow Fashion


Slow Fashion offers creatives, entrepreneurs, and ethical consumers a glimpse into the innovative world of the eco-concept store movement, sustainable design, and business that puts people, livelihoods, and sustainability central to everything they do.


Safia Minney argues that the future of brick and mortar retail is in the best in fair trade, sustainability, and organic products, together with vintage and second hand goods and local produce. Restorative economics is  helping to shape big business.


The book curates pioneering people and projects intended to inspire  change. International names featured include Livia Firth, Zandra Rhodes, Lily Cole, Andrew Morgan, The True Cost filmmaker, and Dana Geffner of the Fair World Project. With full color photography, Slow Fashion profiles the people bringing alternatives to the mainstream: designers, labels, and eco-concept stores across the world; fair trade producers; campaigns that are re-designing the fashion economy; and the fibers and fabrics  making a difference.


Author Safia Minney is founder and CEO of fair trade and sustainable fashion label People Tree. She has turned a lifelong interest in environment, trade, and social justice issues into an award-winning social business, and is widely regarded as a leader in the Fair Trade movement.
