A very cute pinafore dress made from hand woven white denim and block printed (by hand of course!) with animals or birds. Indigo denim is used as a decorative trim at the bottom and on the straps of the dress. The poppers on the shoulder allow for size alteration. This dress can be worn all year round as a sun dress or a winter pinafore. When it is too short as a dress, it becomes a tunic top!
The designs are ducks, birds, lions or butterflies, in green, yellow, red or turquoise. Unfortunately we don’t currently have every pattern in every size, but we hope you find a pattern to suit you!
This dress has been ethically made using processes that are kind to the environment. It is, of course, traceable and comes with its story so that you can find out all about how it was made and who was involved.
Age 4/5: chest 34cm, length (from back of neck to hem) 58cm
Age 6/7: chest 36cm, length 60cm

Hi, I’m Jo Salter, Founder of Where Does It Come From?
I was concerned that the clothes I was buying for myself and my family were not being created ethically, and that I may indirectly be helping to sustain cruel labour practices and contributing to the world’s pollution problems.The Where Does It Come From? strategy has three main goals:
Firstly we work with Social Enterprises to produce our clothing, ensuring that all the workers have pay and working conditions according to fair trade principles. We provide work for cotton farmers, spinners and weavers in co-operatives set up to empower rural women, and small artisan printers, dyers and tailors.
Secondly we focus on protecting our environment. We use low water and carbon processes, non-toxic dyes and organic cotton as we want to have as low a negative impact as possible. We encourage our customers to keep their items longer and pass them on when finished with them. We run a ‘preloved’ shop to support this.
Thirdly, we share the whole story of our garment creation. We hope that these stories will educate and interest – especially the children – and inspire people to shop differently. We believe that having better relationships with our clothes makes us happier too!
