Australian label sass & bide will be joining three other superstar labels including Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood & Ilaria Venturini Fendi in a bid to help fight poverty and promote ethical fashions as part of the ITC’s Ethical Fashion Initiative. The duo has collaborated with women living in East Africa to create two limited edition pieces which will uphold the ITC project’s ideals of export impact for good and not charity, just work.

sass & bide co-founder Sarah-Jane Clarke commented on the relationship;

“It is inspiring to be working directly with the East African Artisans, & to be influenced by their traditions, culture & daily lives. By partnering with these talented craftswomen, it allows them to suppoer their immediate families and greater communities. It is rewarding to see that their wages are used to educate their children.”

The “heading north” shopper and “on your marks” clutch are now available for purchase from sass & bide boutiques.
