FAIR+FAIR SHOP AT MINT
FAIR+FAIR is a small department store in an antique canalhouse on one of the main canals in Amsterdam. Sustainable design from more than 30 countries is presented in a few stylish rooms in a bohemian atmosphere.
All products are based on fair production principles like ecological, fair trade production, re- or upcycled, natural materials, locally made, hand made or social design.
It’s the daily task to develop an assortment with the purest karakter and the most simple design without ignoring local traditions.
The assortment contains a diversity of products for living, house and body.
In January 2014 the FAIR+FAIR+FASHION collection will be launched. Relaxt urban basics for every moment of the day for man and woman from 1 to 100. The garments are made from the softest eco-cotton and fair trade produced with the highest standards and the best fit.
All the profit from FAIR+FAIR will be invested in housing their producers in poor countries. FAIR+FAIR is an official registered social business.
FAIR+FAIR has its own shop in MINT
With its positive, progressive focus on sustainable and ethical fashion, MINT has also proved to be a very topical new feature. The fearless drive of this mainly young generation of fashion designers and decision makers offers a tantalising glimpse of the future of the fashion industry. The ultra-fresh and stylish MINT exhibition platform also merited an updated look. The first labels to have registered for this edition of MINT – Eco Couture, Format, L’Herbe Rouge, MLY, OAT Shoes, O My Bag, People Tree, studio JUX, Twin Couture and Underprotection – also include the two newcomers Löv and Komodo.

Under the banner “Forward Fashion”, MINT presented the future of fashion. Forward Fashion offers clothing produced in a way that respects people, animals and the environment without compromising on style. At this edition, MINT was confined to a small selection of brands, such as Elsien Gringhuis, whose catwalk show was warmly received. However, at the next edition, MINT will be doing things on a much larger scale!
