When I saw this fabric in my search for Fairtrade fabric I immediately thought of two things - the Masai tribe and the amazing colourful tartan colours they're known for wearing and my daughter Mary who, when she was 2, used to dance like a Masai jumping up and down. The weavers in Tamil Nadu, India who made this fabric produced cloth within a fair trade system for 25 years. “Their children were paid bursaries to remain in education, and as a result the whole community has become much better educated. The young adults have many more choices about how they will live and perhaps unsurprisingly, many choose not to follow in the hand loom tradition, but to pursue higher paid jobs. As a result we are now paying fair wages to power loom operators instead. This is wonderful because it proves that fairtrade really works to raise people out of poverty.” – FairTrade Fabric. Sadly, the company that once sold their fabrics had to close due to rising shipping costs. This little skirt was the very last bit of what I had bought and it's absolutely gorgeous.
