Our Zippy Jacket has been created from soft, handwoven denim and is fully lined. Collarless and straight fit, the jacket has two zip pockets for keeping treasures and a button-up front and cuffs. As with all our products, this jacket has been ethically made with very low environmental impact and is, of course, traceable so that you can find out how it was made and who was involved. The jacket comes in three gorgeous colours – Bubblegum, Sky Blue and Toffee.

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!
