"Eclectic, ethical and one-of-a-kind! Vagabond Van offers eco-chic fashion made by hand with love from Africa. We work with craftspeople all over Africa, recycling (or 'upcycling' as we like to say!) everything from vintage silks from the 60's to detergent bottles, adding to the unique story which each piece has to tell and minimising its effect on the environment."
The van is a 1952 Flying Cloud Airstream caravan. And is now parked in Camden near Proud Galleries. This month they are launching their Band 4 Hope (follow this link to join in) where you buy a copper and zinc band, ethically hand crafted again in Africa. A 1/4 of the sale price goes to a charity of your choice. The idea is that you buy the band. Wear it for 4 weeks then pass it on and watch its journey online at the band4hope blog. Interesting concept have a look.
