    Kudos to Prada for ethical practices in fashion. Glad Indian arts are getting the recognition in fashion circles. But would I pay Prada prices for them?? Hmm.

    oh please. prada being open and honest by sticking on a dinky little label that says where the clothes were made? hahahaha! what an “aisha” moment.

    how much of that over priced prada price tag ACTUALLY gets paid to the indian artisans? anybody knows? anybody cares?

      You should buy chickan from SEWA. The profits go entirely to the women artisans plus their craftwomanship is absolutely stunning.

    But.. on a secondary note..
    Am I the only one to notice those fingers that are working on these lovely shoes…? They are scraped.. hurt.. or over-worked?


    Crossing mine that they are getting their worth for this work!

    Baby steps.. but atleast steps in the right direction!
    I think the worst i’ve heard of so far are the bags by Simone Camille. The design/handwork/structure is completely stolen from the Rajasthani style handbags you get everywhere in India. Completely disgraceful!
    ps: Love this post!
