editor-in-chief’s letter

“While we’ve come a long way in forging a path of equality, there’s still a long road ahead” Who runs the world? Well, if some of the incredible women in this issue were put in charge we’d be hella better off, and Beyoncé’s answer might be true. But as our cover powerhouse Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore found – along with photographer Michelle Grace Hunder – this certainly wasn’t the case when they decided to document an under-represented group in the music industry: women. “My intention was not to ostracise men, but to simply celebrate women. It’s a chance to listen and, I hope, a grand gesture in the direction of change. There’s room for the conversation to get louder,” says Claudia. While we’ve come a long way in forging a path of equality,…

social enterprise spotlight: bilum & bilas

Tell us about your brand… Bilum & Bilas is a social enterprise based in Papua New Guinea. We create contemporary accessories handcrafted by female artisans using traditional weaving techniques. How do you support your artisans? Papua New Guinean female artisans create amazing products, but market access is extremely limited. Most women remain in poverty as they wait in local markets for sales, surviving hand-to-mouth on unstable incomes. We support our artisans by directly employing them – providing a guaranteed income and a safe and secure work environment. Our team also receive training in fashion trends and international quality standards, which supports them to produce more competitive designs and build a sustainable business. What kinds of products do you create? Our pieces are intricate representations of bilum weaving techniques and other traditional adornments, such as grass skirts,…

raise the bar

While pesky plastic tends to run riot through every room in the house, a particularly troublesome hot-spot can be the bathroom – jam-packed as it is with lotions and potions in disposable bottles galore. Happily though, it’s also one of the simplest spots to fix, with nifty bar-based options available for pretty much every inch of you. Not only do bars help cut down on the eight million tonnes of plastic that heads to the ocean each year, they’re often more concentrated (because = less water) and use all-natural ingredients – meaning they’re better for us and the seas they wash into. ETHIQUE GINGERSNAP SCRUB New Zealand brand Ethique is leading the way in plastic-free toiletries, and they tick a lot of recyclable cardboard boxes with their vegan, plastic-free, cruelty-free and palm-oil free…
