Snow, Bibico’s founder, designed clothes for major High Street brands for over 10 years. During this time they watched fashion get faster, clothes become cheaper and quality worse. And no consideration was given to the people producing them. Disillusioned, Snow and her husband decided to create their own clothing company. They committed to working with producers they knew well and that looked after the people who worked for them. Today Bibico creates easy to wear, fuss free and well made clothing.
Bibico currently work with two women’s cooperatives that are both fair trade certified by the WFTO. The cooperatives provide women with training, education and work, empowering them to move themselves and their children forward and out of the world of poverty.
“We wouldn’t work for a wage from which we could not afford life’s basics, so we don’t expect the people making our clothes to do so.”
