For Autumn Winter 2017, People Tree and the Victoria and Albert Museum introduce a unique and feminine capsule collection inspired by the 1930s. This limited edition collection recalls the elegant outfits of the period with a contemporary twist. Key to the collection are romantic long and lean shapes with subtle ruffle details. The Seed and Tulip prints are based on dress fabrics produced by the Calico Printers’ Association in Manchester, now held in the V&A archive.

The garments are hand crafted in organic cotton and sustainable materials, using traditional skills that support rural communities. People Tree is the pioneer in Fair Trade and environmentally sustainable fashion. For over twenty years, People Tree has partnered with Fair Trade artisans and farmers in the developing world to produce a collection of ethical and eco fashion.
Lyocell or the branded name, Tencel®, is a more environmentally friendly substitute for viscose. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Tencel fabrics have a beautiful drape, allow your skin to 'breathe' and don’t absorb odors. The fabrics has a luxurious look and feel and is very comfortable to wear!
Tencel is sustainable because the fabric is biodegradable, made of renewable material and attention is paid to sourcing wood pulp from sustainably managed forests. Other environmental benefits are that there is no bleaching needed before processing as the fiber is very ‘clean’ by itself. The energy, water and chemical consumption is reduced to a minimum due to the unique closed loop production process. And you can launder clothing made of tencel effectively at a low temperature.
