    I would like to add our wholehearted support to this great endeavour. Too often the ethical issues have been pushed aside in the name of the prolonged recession. We are full UKTF members, so if there are new ethic chic designers who want to trial showcase their work with us, I’d be more than happy to give them a run. Feel free to contact me directly. Glad to see industry taking care of the real business of helping out.
