It’s always fun to get to know new brands. And you know me, I love to support smaller brands and start ups. I was sent this gorgeous tote bag by the lovely folk at Ethical Fashion Brand – Maglen Designs. Based in Australia, the cousin duo work with other small businesses to ensure all their products are produced fairly and ethically.
Let me back track a second though… I feel I may have under-sold the actual bag if I’m honest, because it’s not just your run of the mill ‘tote bag’. It’s constructed from a hardwearing canvas (the print was designed by the owners), with leather handles and an internal pocket which is perfect phone size!
It’s just one of those, popping to the shop, day out, uni library kinda bags. Handy for running errands while looking stylish as heck!
As a career into my 40s, I’m trying to make more ethical purchases. I know I’ve talked about it before and part of me will always be a slave to fast fashion and bargain buys. But I do love the thought of supporting small businesses and real folk, not faceless corporations.

I’d love to hear about your favourite ethical brands. Educate me please!
