George Eliot once wrote: “Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face.”
Such a simple sentence encapsulates such a great love. But we’d expect nothing less from the wonderful Eliot.
We hope you’re showing your Mum some extra love this Sunday. If you’re considering buying her a gift, why not make it an ethical, Fair Trade gift and ensure that the women and mothers around the world who make your clothes and accessories feel the love too?
