NOLCHA, Independent Fashion Talent Company,Expands to Chicago
New York City and London-based NOLCHA launches Independent Retail Week in Chicago - week long shopping event to increase business and branding awareness for small retailers
Independent Retail Week (www.independentretailweek.com)
“There could not be a more perfect time to expand this project and support independent fashion businesses,”
Continuing its support for ethical fashion, Nolcha has partnered with Morsbags to produce shopping totes that are funky, strong, fabric reusable bags made from recycled duvet covers, curtains and vintage clothes that will be given consumers to replace the traditional goodie bags and plastic shopping bags.
Just by putting a free pattern on www.morsbags.com and by word-of-mouth, over 1000 groups -'pods' worldwide have signed up to make morsbags in their own homes, local schools, churches and community centers. Using only recycled fabric, i.e. no more harmful pesticides and bleaches and dyes are used in the making of morsbags, they prevent unwanted material from ending up in landfill while making a fabulous and simple reusable bag. They take only 15 minutes to make and over 44,000 morsbags have been made and freely distributed to date, potentially replacing 22 million plastic bags.
