Sustainability Champions is a podcast series by Daniel Hartz which highlights the people, ideas, and innovations protecting and healing the planet.
Sustainability Champions are the individuals, companies and organizations currently solving environmental challenges around the world. They are leaders and innovators and their numbers are growing.
In this episode of Sustainability Matters Today, I interview Katherine Maunder, Founder of Threadtales and #Champion of Ethical Fashion through Sustainable Practices.
Threadtales is a luxury fashion brand that creates scarves, travel wraps and Kaftans using environmentally-sound fabrics.
Katherine is passionate about handcrafted raw materials to create unique designs, so she chose to make many of Threadtales’ pieces out of their signature Lotus flower fabric.
The Lotus flower grows naturally in lakes in Myanmar and benefits from harvesting, which helps the crop renew each season.
The clothes are then produced in Nepal using zero electricity, zero waste, and zero chemicals.
Thread Tales were recently awarded the Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury for their company-wide commitment to strong environmental principles.

I hope you enjoy the episode!
