Perk up any T-shirt with this stunning Twilight Tassel necklace from Mata Traders, made by a Fairtrade women's co-op in India. Silver plated brass, there's two crescent moons along with long tassels. It will soon become your favourite go-to, over anything piece.


5 ethical accessories for summer including Camila Shoulder Wallet

Shoulder bag, £66

We love a cork bag, and this Camilla wallet from Rok Cork is a fabulous sustainable shoulder bag. Cork is a natural material, it's vegan friendly and made in Portugal. The clever design means you can wear it as a bag or carry as a wallet, there's a phone pocket, window slot for a card and even pockets for cash.
