CH 42: Fellow Dreamers: Story of a slow fashion startup

Curious Handmade Podcast Ep 42

I’m talking to Jemilla Robertson, Fashion Designer and founder of Fellow Dreamers, an ethical and sustainable lingerie and loungewear label.

We chat about why she started Fellow Dreamers, the ethical fair pay workshop in India where embroiderers create the artisan embellishments on her garments and her hopes for Fellow Dreamers to grow and help even more disadvantaged women.
