I’m so excited about this blog post for a couple of reasons! Firstly, I’m really happy to introduce you all to my new favourite clothing brand called We Are Hairy People. They are a hand-painted clothing brand based in Bristol UK, made sweatshop free, uniquely hand-painted by three lovely artists! I first came into contact with them on our first collaboration a year ago. I was a new blogger and was thrilled for a brand to personally reach out to me. They were to be one of my first sponsors ever! We continued to follow each other’s work from opposite sides of the world and not long ago I decided to give their website another visit as I saw they have just launched a new, colourful collection. Immediately I noticed their new project called ‘Lifesaving Gift’, which means for every purchase of that item, a Lifesaving gift is sent to someone in need around the world. There is a drop down box where you can choose the gift that is sent, from malaria nets to tetanus vaccines. I had a lot of fun choosing which pieces I wanted, and what gifts I wanted to get sent out from my purchases. For the first time, splurging on clothes does not have to be considered ‘wasteful’ nor ‘selfish’. On top of all of this, their passion and energy towards their work is extremely refreshing and draws me to them as there’s nothing that makes me happier than to see people who truly love and believe in what they do!
If you would like to support their cause, you can head over to We Are Hairy People and look for items that say ‘Lifesaving Gift’ where you will be able to choose what you would like to get sent out with your purchase. Use my discount code ‘NunLife‘ at checkout for a 15% off on any items at their store! And of course, do browse the rest of their lovely hand-painted items as well! ❤
