Origin Africa are the world's first 100% not-for-profit ethical clothing brand, based in North Devon (just like MindfulCommerce!) Origin sells gorgeous planet friendly clothing made from sustainable materials with a strong, positive social impact. Each item of clothing is thoughtfully and ethically made - funding social impact projects in Africa. Origin’s garments are unisex, easy to wear and can be part of your wardrobe for years to come!
We believe social business is the future! If all companies had purpose at their heart then the entire economy would be geared towards positive social change. We are part of the Slow Fashion Movement and use the sale of our organic clothing to fund sustainable community projects in Africa.
Why We Love Origin Africa 🌿
Not only are Origin Africa a local brand to us in North Devon, we simply love that they take a holistic approach to ‘sustainability’ to include all 6 pillars of the MindfulCommerce Framework - everything from their packaging, environmental impact, supply chain, materials, the people and what their profits achieve in Africa!
Origin is a growing social enterprise which is genuinely changing lives. Not only is the ethical fashion brand built on sustainable and planet friendly production, it is also using its profits to help drive social change in Africa. Their clothing and iconic designs have become popular across the UK including many celebrity fans such as Fearne Cotton and Gemma Atkinson and has featured on the BBC, ITV, Forbes, The Metro, The Evening Standard and You Magazine. Origin is proving that fashion can be a force for good and that consumers don’t have to choose between style and substance.
