Where to buy warm, stylish slippers for winter ... that don't come from a chain or department store and are ethically produced? Amy Stephens of Fair Fashion Year has the answer!
It doesn’t take long for Warehouse slippers to fall apart. How long, you ask? Well, mine lasted a record one year. Plastic fantastic!
I wasn’t expecting to find anything in Wellington's Victoria St Trade Aid. But little did I know, they stock super soft and comfy women’s and men’s wool slippers for the reasonable price of $49 a pair. There are lots of sizes and colours too.
They're much nicer to wear than anything else I’ve bought. They also look like they will go the distance. Nice one, Trade Aid!
Meet Amy from Fair Fashion Year
Amy lives and works in the wonderful city of Wellington and has always been interested in fashion. But recently she's become concerned with the 'dark side' of fashion and the ethics and sustainability of it.
She's been blogging about her journey so far on her 'fair fashion year' - there are three rules. They are to only buy pre-loved, Fairtrade or New Zealand-made clothing and shoes.
So far it's been a pretty amazing and interesting eight months! You can read about her year so far at Fair Fashion Year!
