an #ecofashion update: One Mango Tree - making change in N. Uganda

One Mango Tree line of tops, bottoms and dresses for women comes in array of fabrics including organic cotton knit, African kitenge, the fabric often used for traditional garments is so on-trend this season with its vibrant colours and patterns, plus Butvin also sources fabrics from vendors in Kampala’s vast fabric market.”We try to source materials locally to reduce our carbon footprint,” Butvin shares. “When you buy a garment in a typical mall shop, it very well could have traveled to globe twice over to get to you. By sourcing locally produced organic cotton knits and hand-loomed fabrics, we not only create additional jobs in Uganda, but we reduce our impact by creating only one journey – from Uganda to you.”
