Questions about fashion

Here at Ethnic Supplies, ending poverty is about job creation in order that African women can achieve financial independence. To that end I promote and sell the work of women that produce fashion accessories , art and crafts. The products are all handmade from natural or recycled materials.

I have recently found myself in deep thought as to how much the public understand about some of the terms that are used in the fashion industry and the impact of this on what I am trying to do here at Ethnic Supplies

This post is therefore my way of seeking feedback from the public on some of these terms. So over to you folk.

WHAT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AS APPLIED TO FASHION ACCESSORIES ?

  1. sustainable
  2. sustainability
  3. FairTrade
  4. fairly traded
  5. fair trade
  6. humane silk
  7. ethical
  8. ethically produced
  9. Eco
  10. Eco friendly
  11. handmade
  12. handcrafted
  13. fair wage
  14. organic
  15. green
  16. suitable for vegetarian
  17. environmentally friendly
  18. sweat shops
  19. value addition

I also wonder what influences your choice when shopping,

would the above terms influence your choice when shopping?

If so why?

Are you happy to pay a premium for  a product with any of the above labels? If  so why?

I will keep this short so that we can have a discussion.
