People Tree was founded in 1991 by social entrepreneur Safia Minney. The brand partners with social businesses who provide stable employment with fair wages alongside investment in the local community such as funding education, providing medical facilities and raising awareness of the rights of women and girls.
One of the partners, Swallows, was set up to support women by providing employment and training opportunities, enabling them to provide for themselves and their families. People Tree operate under Fair Trade standards and their clothing is made using sustainably sourced fabrics. They help keep traditional hand-skills such as weaving and embroidery alive, providing an income for female artisans in rural areas who would otherwise be forced to travel to the city to make a living.
Every product on the site is made to the highest ethical and environmental standards from start to finish. People Tree gets its inspiration from the the Victoria & Albert museum archives of over 1,000 individuals and organisations relating to art, design, performance and the history of the Museum.
The result is stylish, innovative and affordable fashion while respecting people and the planet. Collections featuring organic cotton, TENCEL™ Lyocell and responsible wool, are made using traditional artisan skills such as hand weaving, hand knitting, etc.
If you are looking for a brand that encompasses good design, beautiful fabrics, care for the environment and the well-being of its workers at its core…this is it.
