The Story of Emiliana Underwear has now been written by Emma for a chapter entitled ‘Knickers to that!’, which is featured in the book “Stories of the Great Turning”.
The book is introduced by the wonderful eco-activist Joanna Macy, and contains a wonderful collection of true stories, detailing inspiring, practical grassroots approaches to Sustainability from all over the world.
I encourage you to buy this wonderful book, but as a taster you can download my chapter here.
Mass-made consumer products are generally made by women thousands of miles away who, in the process of making these knickers, are just treated like machines, performing the same task over and over again, for hours on end, day on day. Instead Emiliana Underwear aims to engage women in the wonderful, happy, participatory process that creating beautiful underwear should be.
