Gandys Flip Flops – Story Behind the Brand

Gandys Gandys Flip Flops   Story Behind the Brand

I am just back from 2 weeks of gorgeous and relaxing summer hols and before I went, I treated myself to a new pair of flipflops as I always spend most of my time around the swimming pool. I decided to opt for a new brand that I discovered through the Bibico blog and whose story and mission really caught my attention.

Those who were old enough at the time will vividly remember the shocking TV footage of the 2004 tsunami that hit the coasts of Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia and Thailand on Boxing day causing devastation and misery for all those involved. Rob and Paul Forkan, founders of Gandy’s Flip Flops and were affected directly when an adventure of a lifetime with their parents working on humanitarian projects in India and Sri Lanka turned into a nightmare. They lost both their parents when the Tsunami hit the fishing town where they were staying in Sri Lanka and they both faced a very difficult journey with their brothers and sisters to find their way home to the UK from amidst the chaos that surrounded them.

Fortunately for the Forkan Children, they were supported by friends and family allowing them to finish their education. Rob and Paul got jobs in London and saved up enough money to complete the trip that they had started with their parents including returning to India.

But the story doesn’t end there. Rob and Paul wanted to find a positive end to this tragedy and decided to continue in the spirit of their parents by trying to help orphans like themselves in the countries that they had visited with their parents, orphans who weren’t lucky enough to have family and friends to support and help them as they had. After Rob woke up with a “mouth like Gandhi’s flip flop” at a festival one morning, the idea for their new flip flop brand was born. A brand that is designed in London, inspired by travel and fuelled by giving back.

Gandys is a social enterprise with 10% of all profits going to the ‘Orphans for orphans’ mission or the Gandy Foundation which is already beginning to make a difference by funding homes for orphans in India and Sri Lanka. This year the first home is opened in memory of Kevin and Sandra Forkan marking the 10th anniversary of the tsunami.

Gandys have a fantastic range of flip flops in a selection of colours and patterns. I was particularly taken by the Liberty print ones which have been pretty much welded to my feet for the last few weeks. As always with the ethical fashion brands that I love, it is great to have something that looks great but that also makes a difference.

You can find out more about Gandys story and mission or check out their collection of flip flops on www.gandysflipflops.com.

Ethical Fashion – The August Round Up

Ethical fashion is really where it is happening at the moment but with so much going on, I am really struggling to keep up with posting about everything. So I have decided to introduce a new monthly round up feature to give me the opportunity to share with you anything that I think you would love to know about from my favourite ethical fashion blog posts, new collections, offers, discounts and giveaways. If you have anything interesting about ethical or sustainable fashion that you would like to share this month please leave a comment below.

itv this morning Ethical Fashion   The August Round Up

It was great to see Ethical Fashion getting some of the TV coverage that it deserves with this fantastic ethical fashion round up by Darren Kennedy on ITV This Morning. It featured some of my favourite brands including Annie Greenabelle, Bibico and Braintree Clothing.

It was also great to read on The Fashion Spot that This Years Copenhagen Fashion Week is all About Sustainability.

Ruby Rocks Ethical Fashion   The August Round Up

Ruby Rocks (another of my favourite ethical fashion brands) has just launched a new jewellery collection in collaboration with Emi Jewellery. To celebrate they are holding a giveaway with the chance to win a statement necklace from the new collection. You can enter on their Facebook page.

There is a fantastic guest post over on City Girl at Heart about Fortress of Inca, an ethical brand creating beautiful handcrafted shoes in Peru. How amazing are these wedges?

There was an interesting post on Op Ed last week discussing the need for etailers to tell consumers where their products are made. I absolutely agree. Websites and social media offer such great opportunity to tell the story about a brand. I also think people are actually starting to care more about where their clothes are made. What do you think?

Last week I also took part in the new Your Ethical Style feature at Moral Fibres. You can check out the interview here.

Ecooutfitters web 200x120 next page 1 Ethical Fashion   The August Round Up

For any parents out there, you may be starting to think about the children going back to school. Whilst there is now quite a lot of ethical fashion out there to choose from, finding ethically made school uniforms for children can be a little more tricky. Which is why I was really pleased to discover Ecooutfitters. Organic cotton school uniforms are not only a better alternative for the environment but they are also a good way to ensure that your children do not come into contact with any chemical nasties found in school uniforms treated with stain-resistant, wrinkle-resistant coatings.

Last but not least here are a few of my favourite ethical fashion pieces from the end of summer sales.

Ethical Workwear – Summer

042 Ethical Workwear   Summer
Dress and Scarf – Braintree Clothing

I hope you are enjoying the summer! I am loving the gorgeous weather everything just seems to much happier. The warm weather can throw up a few challenges in finding ethical workwear though. The office can get quite warm despite the air conditioning and so I like to wear sleeveless dresses but also want to look reasonably smart and would feel uncomfortable in anything too skimpy.

I invested in this dress a few months back and it fits the bill perfectly as it is really lightweight and cool but also below the knee. I ordered a size up than I usually might wear for a really comfy loose fit. The dress is by Braintree Clothing, a brand which I love for their ability to create relaxed but pretty clothes with just a hint of boho. The SS14 collection features some of my favourite colours in soft comfy separates and unique prints. I love that the style of the dress will not really date so I will be able to wear it year after year on hot summer days in the office. If you are looking for affordable clothes that are ethical and sustainable, I would definitely recommend checking them out. The clothes are ethically made from hemp, bamboo and organic cotton, all of which feel great against the skin especially in hot weather.

Which are your favourite ethical brands for summer?

Things have been pretty busy lately, but I have managed to steal a bit of time to work on creating a new store for my blog which you can check out here. The store contains a large selection of ethically and sustainably made clothes including vintage, upcycled, organic, fair trade and vegan. I am hoping to make shopping a little easier for anyone who loves fashion but does not want to compromise on ethics. There are plenty of amazing brands out there but sometimes it can be a little difficult to know where to look. The store is a work in progress so I hope to continue developing and improving it. I would love to know what you think.
