On the topic of ethical clothing, here we have some ethical shoes. These are my new Ish Shoes, that I bought with my earnings from my market stall at Ecofest. They are handmade in Barongarook, a little over an hour from here. They are made from soft leather, which moulds and stretches over your foot as you wear them. They felt a bit tight when I first wore them, but now they are quite comfy. You can have them made to order in all sorts of styles and colour combinations, it's fun to choose. Evie had similar ones last year in a metallic aubergine colour, with silver flowers on them, and they were very durable for kids feet, we will be able to pass them on to Livinia when she's a little bigger. They are also competitively priced, with kids shoes around $35 plus postage if you can't get to their showroom or a market they sell at.
