Fair Trade Ethical Fern Stitch Beret - Banana and Wool

Uplift Fair Trade

Fair Trade Ethical Wool and Banana Fibre Fern Stitch Beret Beanie 

Fair Trade Ethical Beanie. Beautifully hand knitted with pure, natural, Eco-friendly wool from New Zealand and banana fibre sourced from Nepal. 

These Berets are lovingly made by Artisans in Nepal who spin and dye raw wool from New Zealand and banana fibre from Nepal using azo-free dyes. They hand-knit the Beret using bright and varied colours, making every beanie totally unique. The whole process is sustainable and eco-friendly as Uplift Fair Trade have chosen to source this product that uses the leftover pieces of wool that would otherwise be thrown out.
