Bibico’s utterly charming, oh-so-perfect-for-spring clothes. See all of them here!
Break out the confetti! The ModCloth family just got a little bigger this week, with the arrival of new fair trade designer Bibico.
The UK brand is run by Nieves Ruiz, who spent years designing for leading fashion companies in Europe and Australia before breaking out to create the label she always wanted–one that was stylish, sustainable, and supported fair trade. Bibico’s clothing is sewn by women in co-ops in Mumbai and Kathmandu, and Nieves hopes to economically empower these women and their communities.
What is fair trade, exactly? Fair trade is a movement that aims to create greater equity in international trade, and is founded on the ideas of sustainable development for marginalized producers, and ethical and eco-friendly practices. Bibico is committed to the World Fair Trade Organization’s 10 standards of fair trade, which include:
We’re thrilled to welcome Bibico to our site, and we hope you are too!
Yes! Yes! Yes!! So glad you guys are offering fair trade pieces. Love!
YES! This is exactly what I was hoping for! I know Modcloth would start thinking globally!
wow! fair trade AND adorable! most excellent!
Wow, beautiful pieces! I love the yellow one. It’s great to know that you are stocking fair trade clothing, definitely makes it all the more tempting! x http://www.lostinthehaze.com
So glad ModCloth stylists are going the fair trade route! As more fair trade designers come onto the site, I’m sure I’ll be making many more ModCloth purchases! Can’t wait!
You read my mind! I just filled out the ModSquad Street Team survey last night and one of the things I suggested was more sustainable/eco-friendly/fair-trade clothing and here it is! SWEET.
I totally put that in my survey response, too! This is great, and definitely a sign to me that ModCloth is going in an awesome, fabulous direction. 🙂
Conscientious fashion! Delightful. 🙂
I love Bibico, and I love that ModCloth is stocking some fair trade stuff. Thanks!!
So. So. SO EXCITED for this! Thrilled to see more fair trade!
AWESOME! I saw you got a Mata Traders dress too! That is one of my favorite brands! Props!
FINALLY! I am going to spread the word so much, and can’t wait to support this designer!
Wow. gorgeous pieces and such a great cause!
I’m glad because I have done presentations against human trafficking/modern day slavery and constantly am conscious about what I buy and I thought most everything from ModCloth was fairtrade/slave free until I received a couple pieces made in china or areas known for having hard labor for long periods of time with little to no pay.
This is amazing! And the pieces are gorgeous!
Any chance you guys will be adding People Tree as well?
