This smart, swing-style jacket has been made from hand-woven white denim and block printed (by hand!) with animals – either red lions or turquoise birds. The jacket is fully lined and fastens with a tie and a popper. Dark blue denim (blueberry – matches the Jumpin’ Jeans!) has been used to trim the jacket across the shoulders and around the bottom. The loose, swing style of this jacket means that it will (hopefully) survive a growth spurt and last a little longer! This jacket has been made ethically using processes that are kind to the environment and is, of course, traceable.

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!
