Welcome to Shakti+Mary, an ethical clothing brand specialising in fairtrade cashmere and handmade textiles.
Working with NGOs in Nepal, artisans in India and tailors in Bristol, Shakti+Mary creates limited collections from cashmere, handloom ikat and blockprint - with a menswear collection planned for 2018.
Rebecca Hobson (a writer by trade) started the brand in 2017 after moving to India and falling in love with its commitment to handloom and resistance to fast fashion.
What's in a name?
Shakti represents divine female energy in the Hindu faith, and is believed to be responsible for creation and change.
And Mary, well, she was the mother of Jesus, and pretty impressive by all accounts. So they represent some powerful stuff.
They also happen to be Rebecca's middle names.
