Emma Watson for People Tree
Late last month everyone's favorite wand-wielding petite pixie launched her third eco-chic collection for People Tree. The spring line showcases everything from floral prints to gingham, bohemian-inspired designs to a bit more retro fare. I was impressed with the styles from the lookbook and it's such a delight to see influential people putting a focus on fair trade. What exactly is fair trade?
- World Fair Trade Organization
Each item was made by producers from one of People Tree's partners. They're located anywhere from Bangladesh to India. Take Folk for example, who made the Bella Silk dress below. According to People Tree, "Folk Bangladesh works with over 600 artisans, of which many are women from tribal and indigenous groups, providing them with fair wages, loans and health insurance." Not only is it great to know your purchase is supporting such an ethical and helpful organization, but to know that each piece is created by these women, though following Emma's designs, with their own sense of craftsmanship is so exciting!

Kudos to Emma for providing fab fashion and keeping us grounded. I hope more people will follow her lead.
