Swedish Revolution

I recall wearing wooden clogs as a child. So did my sister and a few friends. The clunky sound they made would echo as we walked around, and we would flippantly flip them off to the side, whilst playing, as they were so robust. I was always so proud of them, as I thought they were cool, and gave me a height advantage at the time.

A while ago, I rediscovered the clogs, but with a completely new take on it. The Swedish Hasbeens, are so Retro, and nostalgic, yet perfect for the world we live in right now.

They shout alternative, and I like that alot!! and of course, my favorite material ‘Wood’ features strongly. The story behind the brand will make you smile (http://www.swedishhasbeens.com/story)  and all the shoes are hand made in Sweden, with ethically sourced wood and leather.

Swedish Hasbeens are part of a Fashion revolution #Fashrev, moving us towards great fashion, without stripping the earth of too much resources.

It’s Fashion Revolution day today (http://fashionrevolution.org/),  so as well as asking, ‘whomademyclothes?, I also ask ‘whomademyshoes? – working progress, but we are getting there.

On a lighter note, join the fashion revolution crew, wear an item of clothing inside out today, showing your labels, tag the brand, and hashtag #whomademyclothes?

These mint pearl ones are my favorite, and will become my dress up and down shoes for this summer.
