Hand knitted scarf up for grabs
We will shortly be launching a competition on our Facebook and Twitter pages for a fabulous goody bag, full of wonderful delights kindly donated by various suppliers and partners. Here’s the first preview of one of the goody bag items.
Why would I need a scarf in Spring you may ask? Well this is Great Britain, with the not so great weather producing snow and hail only last week. And if the weather is kind enough to behave itself, you can always stash it away until the winter months approach. Plus, this is not just any scarf…
This super soft hand-knitted scarf was donated by Birdsong – a clothing range for women who expect more from their wardrobe. Birdsong finds the best female makers and brings them to you, no sweatshops, no photoshop. They source fairly made fashion, from chitenge-printed bomber jackets to quirky bone jewellery. Each purchase gives 50-85% back to the women who made it, from groups in Malawi to seamstresses on Brick Lane.
The scarf was crafted at The Bradbury day centre by Edna. The expert knitters meet once a week over a chat and cup of tea. The ladies donate profits from their scarves to the centre, allowing them to welcome in more of London’s older people.
Watch this space for more goody bag items and details of the competition, which will launch within the next month. Make sure you don’t miss your chance to enter by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
