Work That Magic

Emma Watson is apparently collaborating with People Tree to design a clothing line that promotes free trade. I’m going to tell you right now, I have no idea what that means.

Clean and easy to wear – Emma Watson and People Tree have created a cool collection boasting a range of jersey t-shirts, dresses, woven skirts, trousers, shorts and knitwear for both men and women.

Bohemian hand embroidered bed throws, recycled sweetie paper jewellery, banana fibre slouchy beanies and head scarves add innovative fashion and home accessories to the collection.

Not only does the collection use 100% organic and Fairtrade certified cotton, it is also made entirely by Fair Trade groups by hand, using hand weaving, hand knitting and hand embroidery to create livelihoods for some of the most disadvantaged people in India, Bangladesh and Nepal.”

Wow, that sounds boring. If she wanted to raise awareness and promote a cause she should have created a free trade swimsuit line. Or just pose naked.

Update 9/18/09: Apparently the word I meant to use is “Fair Trade” not “Free Trade.” I stand corrected and care just as little.

  2. That would be FAIR TRADE, not FREE TRADE – they are very different concepts!
