The thing with cord trousers is they can go brittle after washing and you’re not so much folding them as snapping them in half to put them away. Not so with these wonderfully soft cargos. They have remained soft after repeated washed and look great!
The Charcoal colour contrast well with the bright blue of the jersey lining which again is soft and feels lovely on the skin. The tousers have some lovey details: cargo pockets on each leg with butonned flap (by the way, I have never had a button come off a Frugi item! They are securely stiched aand not hanging by a thread after two wears!); hip pockets, belt loops, adjustable toggle at the waist and zig-zag stitching on one of the back pockets, the flaps of which are also lined with a flash of vibrant blue.
I like the waist band on these too. There are three bands of elastic within the jersey so the waistband is broad and soft. Manny never has and red or pink marks which can sometimes happen with harsher materials or restrictive waist bands.
Preparations are now underway for a pretty amazing job.
I’m off to India next week with the frugi team to cover the entire production process of Organic children’s clothing. Were starting on the farm were the cotton grows (i’m quite worried about the tigers) and all the other stages that go to creating a beautiful and ethical clothing.
We are going to be highlighting some issues that you may not be aware of such the effect of nasty GM farming on our lovely organic cotton farms, and the indian cotton industry as a whole. We will also be covering some of the amazing work that Frugi helps to do within the communities which they work with. We will be visiting the orphans that frugi are helping to put through education and visionary fairtrade communities. So if I don’t get eaten by a tiger expect to see some very real images on this page soon.
We’ve just received this exciting news, via Cornwall Wildlife Trust whom we support via our 1% for the planet donations.
“Yay! Fab news for our seas and all those great animals that live in it! The long awaited Marine Bill which Cornwall Wildlife Trust have been campaigning for for simply ages, has finally been given Royal Assent, which means it has become the new Marine and Coastal Access Act. Now this may sound like yet another dull piece of legislation, but no other country in the World has successfully introduced such a piece of legislation to protect the marine environment. Of most importance to us and the Marine Strandings Network project we help to fund at Cornwall Wildlife Trust is the fact that the new Marine Act will enable Marine Conservation Zones to be designated, as well as much better marine environmental and fisheries enforcement, both of which will be fantastic new tools to help protect our marine life like the dolphins, porpoises and whales which regularly use our coastal waters. It’s a great feeling when the effort of campaigning pays off and you achieve something worthwhile!”
