The Blue Belief // 02/12/2019
It was so great to meet the reps from Samsoe Samsoe this week, one of our longtime favourite Scandinavian designers. We're so excited to be part of the The Blue Belief, a wave of consciously crafted sustainable pieces, landing in CARA stores already...
All blue belief styles are made from organic and recycled cotton with 100% conscious choices, 95% water reduction, 75% saved energy and chemical reduction.
For every Blue Belief item sold Samsoe Samsoe will donate Â£1 to charity: Water. The money is used to build wells in Rwanda, allowing poor and remote villages to have quick and easy access to water. How cool is that!
