Fabric: 100% Organic Cotton
Whilst on a trip to India in 2016, Sophie Franklin was faced the environmental impact and exploitation of workers within the textile industry. FORT Dungarees was founded in response and each piece is inspired by the timelessness of a simple cut and the strength and simplicity you get from a one-piece. FORT believe that women should be able to easily express both their femininity and masculinity at the same time. Their Striped Collection is made from an ancient indigenous, rainfed cotton which is handwoven in rural India, dyed using natural dyes and stitched by an artisan community all within the same region. Their Black collection is made in the foothills of the Himalayas in a centre originally set up to help Tibetan refugees find work. They now work with over 50 staff spanning all religions and cultures who work in harmony and have escaped the rat race of the mainstream textile industry.
