Topshop launch Key to Freedom ethical collection
Feel good fashion takes on a whole new angle with Topshop's new collection of Key to Freedom scarves. Launching exclusively in three branches - Oxford Circus, Brompton Road and White City - as well as online, these silk scarves, featuring one of four traditional Indian printed designs, are on sale to support the Key to Freedom project.
As part of the Women's Interlink Foundation, the project is aimed at providing vulnerable women in West Bengal with training, skills and safe houses to enable them to develop financial independence. A spokeswoman for the charity said: "The young women who are working on the project had a horrific start in life, many fleeing violence and sexual exploitation." She goes on to state that "once settled in the home and the textile business, the young women are often discovered to have hidden talents in areas such as colour and design, technical process ability, printing, tie dying, sewing, and management."
To support this incredible collaboration, head online to check out one of the four gorgeous designs. Choose from a pretty pink or cobalt blue traditional Indian printed scarf, or go for one of two beautiful tie-die offerings; either a light, summery peach or a bright, bold green.
