Just a bike ride

Wednesday 28 September 2011

 

 

 

Once upon a time, and Amandine Jix who loved cycling, sport, people, stories … …. And they just get together with a funny name: Just a Bike Tour

 

And hop …. They went to “drop everything” to focus on their great project  (in French) . They started a cycling  tour in a  part of Asia starting point of Thailand and then Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and ending with China. During the course of those countries they will go and meet local people, including many little-profile associations whose purpose is the education of children. They will provide a “balance sheet” of development perspectives for analyzing these children who attend the school.

 

What I like in this project is that it is well prepared, structured and you have to do with real passion but not unconscious. But rather than words, Amandine presents herself the project (in French):

 

You can visit Facebook’s page and Like it

 

 

You want to sponsor them : it is here

 

And you will see the web site is well designed and well organized with precise documentation

 

To conclude, in order to do not hide anything…. For sure I am jealous to do not be with them!

 

 

Findings and reflections on the Ethical Fashion Show 2011

Tuesday 20 September 2011

On the last edition of the Ethical Fashion Show, we have made great discoveries, human first. All these motivated people who are there whose primary concern is human, and they are more creative and more they defend the know-how (no matter where it comes from) and in addition they think of our planet . I can not list them all but here’s a selection of things I like, I would call the findings Featured.

 

To start the two friendly Gonzague de Borde et Aymeric Bellamy-Brown who are leading  Les Soieries du Mekong. We had met once on the Green Ethic Bazaar where we presented our product lines

 

Les Soieries du  Mekong were infatuated with a dual mission:

• In France they offer scarves and accessories of high quality silk for men and women and of course all that ethically

• In Cambodia through training and accompaniment they try to fight against the rural exodus and thus maintain a knowledge of traditional weaving

 

Then I’ll talk about accessories that I find very poetic: it is the bags of the brand ZAZAZOU. I have not had the opportunity to meet the two designers of ZAZAZOU, but I like their approach and creativity

 

Then to complete this first selection designer Valerie PACHE who makes clothes recycled with the paintings of paragliding. You would imagine that this wedding gown is made in a recycled material.

In addition to this series does not spoil, Valerie is what I call a “good person” smiling, sharing, funny and talented!
There was also lessons of crochet with plastic bags with ADAMA

Adama

Lionel & crochet

Beyond the glitter that can represent the event the motivation of our interest are set jumble below:

• To show our creations for fashion professionals and the public

• Meet people who share our human values

​​• Have a return all of these creations.

• Make most popular image of luxury fashion

• Show that there are alternatives, environmentally friendly, pretty and not necessarily more expensive.

Have good fun!!!

 

After the Ethical Fashion Show you find yourself having sweet dreams: town centers that are not all modeled on the same model. Today we go to Paris, Tours, Angers, Blois, Nancy, Lyon, London, Milan, Barcelona … we’re not really out of place in any case, commercially speaking. The same signs, the same items, the salesman(woman) on the same model: Let’s go buy there.

Pious dream of seeing all these cities are re-transformed into a beautiful identity? Lyon is a city UNESCO World Heritage Well it would be really great if UNESCO took into account environmental criteria in the broad sense to keep this “label”
