This week is Fashion Revolution Week and Sunday 24th April, marks the third anniversary of the Rana Plaza collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh, that killed 1,134 people and injured over 2,500.
The Fashion Revolution Campaign was started with a mission and a belief that the fashion industry can become an industry which values people, the environment, creativity and profits in equal measure, and that it’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that this happens.
This global movement is asking both consumers and businesses to get involved. For individuals they ask us to be curious, find out and do something; this can be from asking the manufacturers, #whomademyclothes? to looking for alternatives such as clothes swaps, charity shops, vintage and customisation to prolong the life of our clothes and encourage us to 'buy less, choose well, and make it last.'
Here at Danaqa we don't work with garment workers but we do work with a range of extremely talented craftspeople to produce our beautiful range of jewellery, scarves and bags.
We are delighted to be able to showcase the amazing work of twin sisters Haimanot and Tigist who design and make our most popular range of jewellery.
