The Coronavirus pandemic has affected many small businesses and independent artisans across the globe. Thread Tales have used their creative brains to adapt the way they sell products and have teamed up with ISHKAR, Goldfinger and INDOI to bring ‘A Conscious Christmas Auction’ to their customers.
“The aim is to make thoughtful shopping part of everyday consciousness; to inspire people to buy better and influence brands to do better. In doing so, we all become a part of the sustainable revolution which is such a joy - especially in a time when the world can feel dark and confusing”
Katherine Maunder, Founder of Thread Tales.
The Conscious Christmas Auction is a carefully curated selection of one-off pieces and experiences. Browse exquisite Artisan woven scarves, wraps and cosy knits and beanies from Thread Tales; curated craft from incredible talents made in areas of conflict from ISHKAR; totally stunning fashion from INDOI crafted by the Artisans of the Indus Valley, and incredible furniture and objects by Goldfinger, an award-winning social enterprise.
Funds raised from the auction are vital to support these sustainable brands in their social mission, bringing orders to artisans that rely on purchases to sustain their livelihoods. Each brand will also be donating 10% of their proceeds to a chosen charity. There’s so much to love- both in the beautiful products and what these brands are trying to achieve.
10% of purchases of Thread Tales products will be donated to The Trussell Trust
10% of purchases of ISHKAR products will be donated to EMERGENCY
10% of purchases of Goldfinger products will be donated to People’s Kitchen // To Your Door
10% of purchases of INDOI products will be donated to SRSC in Pakistan
Bidding opens at 6AM on Thursday 12th November 2020 and will end Sunday 29th November 2020 at 10PM.
