Graham Hollick, our designer, was invited to speak at London's Design Museum last week at the PechaKucha x Fair Trade talk. Organised by illustrator Chris Haughton, the quick-fire talk was given by 10 designers, entrepreneurs and organisations involved in ethical and sustainable trading. Some of the designers were directly involved in Chris's project to produce a range of fair trade hand-knotted rugs in Nepal for his company Node (read more in our blog post here), whilst others, like Stitch by Stitch, spoke about creative projects they'd undertaken applying the principles of fair trade.
The PechaKucha format allows each speaker to show 20 slides, each for just 20 seconds, which ensures a concise, waffle-free presentation! Here, we are pleased to share Graham's presentation about the fascinating projects which led to our Peacock Sportif and Narayan textile collections:
