Let’s talk about accreditation

We all know that our lives and brains are full and that it's hard to really have a full grasp of a complicated issue unless it's in our job description (or an honest passion). But hey, we also know that if we get the basics, that's often enough and we can always add as we go. That's a lot of life, right? Ethical accreditation schemes are complex, multilayered and not without their problems. But grasp the basics and you can...

Fashion Revolution at Upward Dog

Yes yes! Fashion Revolution week is coming up on the 24th to the 30th of April and we are excited.  Fashion Revolution is all about making the fashion industry accountable for the way that the workers in the manufacturing process are treated.  You might have come across the #whomademyclothes and #fashionrevolution hashtags.  You will be seeing them a lot more next week, as people show the labels on their clothes and ask manufacturers the question, 'who made my clothes'?...

Dharma Bums Navy, Mesh, and Barre

A new order of Dharma Bums has arrived, made up of basics with some lovely features.  We now stock the Bamboo Twisted Back Tee in black, the Mesh Panel Leggings in navy, and the Barre Leggings in black.  I love punchy prints, and sometimes some neutral basics are just the thing.  I have noticed navy, mesh, and barre styles trending, and although we are not tied to trends, I recommend all of these styles as something that you can get a lot...

The Go Geo Leggings (above) are 7/8 in length so that is great for shorter people or those who don't want the bottom to be right over the ankles.  They have a standard waist.  I love the swoosh-y print: it makes me feel like moving just seeing it. The Disco Glitter Leggings are full length and high waist, so...

Someone made your clothes

It's true.  I know you know, but still, it gives a purchase a kind of intimacy, reflecting that hands, possibly many, have been involved in making a garment. A little while back there was 'Fashion Revolution' day which is about asking the big brands #whomademyclothes.  Excellent, more of this, and you know, not just for the bandwagon factor.  Some change can be good: bigger systemic changes would be the thing, of course. In the meantime: we are definitely not a big brand,...
