What Daisy Did

What Daisy Did are strong advocates of slow fashion, a term which describes our battle against reckless consumerism in the fashion industry (fast fashion). It encourages consumers to slow down and make more conscious decisions by asking a few simple questions. What Daisy Did are a member of The British Association of Fairtrade Shops and Suppliers and they are partnered with The Woodland Trust to offset our carbon footprint.
 
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the recycle nature of the products, no two products are the same and colours vary. If you place an order a photo will be sent through with all of the colour options availalbe for you to chhose from, or contact us first and we'll e-mail what colours we have in stock. 
 
Carnival Collection
To create the bags and purses What Daisy Did works with two brothers in India called Pinu and Manish who they visit every year. Carnival Collection is made from recycled leather and cotton that has been wasted by factories within a 140km radius of where the bags and purses are made. If not collected, this leather could otherwise end up in landfill.
What Daisy Did has 60 families (just over 100 tailors) producing the products. They live in small communities within a 60km radius of the brothers home. Many of the tailors are ex shoe makers that lost their jobs in the trade shift to China. All tailors are paid a fair commission, with living wage realistically achievable within normal working hours, they work from home and have complete working flexibility. Flexible work is great for them as it means they can work around other commitments such as university or parenting.

We do not use any child, elderly or forced labour. Workers set their own deadlines for what they can produce, meaning no pressure is put on them to meet our deadlines. We also keep work availability consistent by building up stock during quiet times. We try to use every scrap of leather, and any leftovers are sold on to a small jewellery making company to minimise waste.
