Eco-consciousness is beginning to awaken in Shanghai
FINCH is a Shanghai based company launched by two garments and textiles designers: Heather Kaye and Itee Soni. The ladies aim to incorporate sustainability in their design process to the Chinese market and are dedicated to create environmentally and socially responsible apparel and accessories.
They use organic and sustainable fabrics, dyes and printing techniques for their original styles and textile designs, in order to create sustainable apparel and manufacturing here in China, which is not easy. Design-wise, they are known for their retro-vintage vibe and one-of-a-kind prints.
In 2013, FINCH will open the doors of China’s first eco-conscious, small-scale manufacturing and textile printing facility just outside of Shanghai. They also intend to expand it to Asia and eventually take it global.
