Fahison with Passion in Glasgow

Bolshie
Bolshie Dress

Bolshie is Scotland’s first boutique to offer exclusively organic, fair trade and recycled clothes. Its kickoff event at Glasgow University is a fair trade catwalk which is another Scotland first.

“With the UK spending £30 billion a year on clothes, the ethical clothing market is quickly becoming big business. According to the Co-op Bank, spending on ethical clothing rose by 17% to £273 million in 2003.” –Sunday Herald, Dec. 3, 2006

What does Bolshie mean? An “emotionally charged term used to refer to extreme radical or revolutionary.” Nice. Certainly more of a conversation totem than say Eco-Wear, Inc.
