Last weekend was spent in the city with my glorious friend Matilde at the Finders Keepers Melbourne market, and we had a total blast! Coffee, flower crowns and lots of wandering back and forth and around in circles as we tried to fit in everything at once (in hindsight a more linear system may have worked better).
I had some vague plans to take my camera along but managed to leave it in the car, so the day was spent with my face out in the open with no lens to hide behind — scary! I have to admit, I’m very glad I did. It meant I could really take notice of the amazing stalls and vendors, and it was here that I stumbled upon the gorgeous Aussie eco fashion label Vege Threads.
A beautiful merging of sustainability and style, Vege Threads’ range is relaxed, minimal and well-made. They use 100% certified organic cotton jersey and a new luxe eco-friendly fabruc tencel, and my god do they feel amazing. I think I stood there in a trance for a good few minutes at the market, just poking at everything on the racks and admiring the touch.
As well as feeling great, the Vege Threads ethos is pretty darn excellent too: focusing on sustainability and social awareness, a percentage of their profits go to their sponsor foundation in Northern Bali. Have a look at their collection below, then make sure you have a good stalk through their Facebook, Instagram and website. There you’ll find the full Vege Threads story, plus a list of stockists so you can get your own VT piece if you missed them at the market (shaaaaaame).
