It’s Me Made May, a month where handmade clothes and ethical fashion are the topic. Taking a moment to recognize who makes our clothes, who benefits or who suffers from our decisions. The intent is not to shame old habits, but to guide us to better ones, gently reminding us to step away from trend buying, understand where the components of our lives come from, where they really go when we are done with them, and to make educated, respectful choices when we can.
