A social marketplace hosted by The Trampery and curated by Good Apples

This October, we are excited to present a unique marketplace showcasing some of our favourite forward-thinking brands as part of Social Saturday.

We’ve secured a selection of gorgeous fashion, homeware and accessories that don’t just look good, but do good too. So join us on Friday 13th October at The Trampery, Old Street, peruse the products and spend your pennies without the guilt.

Just some of the confirmed stalls are:

Know the Origin who create classic organic cotton clothing for men and women that supports workers from seed to garment, paying close attention to every stage of the making process.

Wyatt and Jack who make bright and durable tote bags out of old bouncy castles and deck chair waste.

Juta Shoes, a social enterprise who create handcrafted espadrilles using reclaimed leather and environmentally-friendly materials while supporting women into work. They’ll also be leading a workshop so you can make your own shoes using traditional stitching techniques – SIGN UP HERE.
