Sizing and Colours
We are blessed to have manufacturers from all over the world, and this is reflected in the their interpretation of what constitutes S, M, L, XL etc. Therefore, in most cases, barr one, which we shall mention in a moment, customers should disregard this information, and instead, refer to the measurements provided on the individual item listings. Measurements should be taken using a tape measure by the customer if needed, prior to purchase.
The exceptions: Certified Fair Trade Clothing items, particularly those marked “one size”….
… Most of our certified fair trade clothes are made by family groups and small enterprises and are often made by hand. The styles are loose fitting and so trying to get consistent sizing across seven different countries has been challenging. The items marked “one size” will fit a person around a UK size 10- 14. Measurements are gradually being added to these items but will take some time. Therefore, we recommend waiting for these if you are a size 8 or a size 16 to make sure the item will fit.
All product measurements provided are approximate and allow for 2cm difference. Therefore, if you are between sizes, we recommend ordering the larger of the two.
We generally do not accept returns and exchanges for sizing differences so please ensure you measure accurately and also allow for any variance by ordering a larger size if you are at all unsure of how the shape of an item may effect the way it fits you. The exception to this is any fair trade item that does not have measurements displayed at the time of purchase. We will exchange, but will be unable to cover return postage cost.
