Whilst the world feels like it may be going crazy right now (well at least in South Africa) it is no surprise that slow fashion ideals like Embroidery take center stage on catwalks and in retail establishments a like .

According to Tara St James in her piece “ The Business of Ethical Fashion“ for Notjustalabel.com, “Slow Fashion is the movement of designing, creating, and buying garments for quality and longevity. James goes on to say that slow fashion encourages slower production schedules, fair wages, lower carbon footprints, and (ideally) zero waste. She surmises that people have reached a place in society where garments seen on a runway today are knocked off and available in stores tomorrow. By adding transparency about our production process and educating consumers about the craft of clothes making, we hope consumers will begin to understand what is required of producing a well-made garment”
