Pachamama Finisterre Gloves - Olive
New to Fair and Fabulous for autumn/winter 2021 we have a stunning range of Pachamama 100% wool clothing and homewares. As you might know by now, we are very partial to throwing ourselves in cold water! So one thing that is a must after a swim is a cosy pair of gloves! These Finisterre gloves have bands of traditional Fair Isle patterns and are 100% wool. The olive colourway coordinates beautifully with any of the flock of sheep accessories and homewares.
100% 1 ply Wool, fine knit, unlined
Machine wool wash max 30 degrees or cool handwash. Short spin. Dry flat. Do not tumble dry.
These beautiful wool products are handmade in Nepal by knitters who are mostly based in their own villages, supplementing their incomes from farming and fitting production around their own family and work commitments. All of the skilled artisans work in excellent conditions with fair pay and benefits. They are brought to us by Pachamama, who are fellow members of BAFTS Fair Trade Network UK.
Fast fashion is one of the most damaging trends in our society - both in terms of exploitation of workers and environmental damage. These fair trade, sustainable and ethical products are a great example of slow fashion - designed for life and made to last. And although wool products are quite seasonal in demand, Pachamama ensures that they provide year-round orders to the knitters to ensure they receive a regular and reliable income.
