Hopeful Traders collaborates with artists affected by homelessness

Models for Hopeful Traders

Hopeful Traders is working on an amazing project right now: a fashion collaboration with artists affected by homelessness mental illness.

Four artists have created designs for T-shirts and sweatshirts – currently available on Kickstarter to fund sponsorship of community projects – to support other people who are experiencing homelessness and mental health problems.

James Lewis, ROL AKA Ray of Light, Zin Vaitekunas and David Tovey – who tells his story in the video below – are all taking part in the project after going seriously difficult situations themselves.  

The tees and sweatshirts are made responsibly by Fairwear Foundation-certified manufacturers in organic cotton, and printed and customised in London. The artists receive ten per cent of sales directly and there's re-investment into their chosen charities' work and community projects.

The campaign video is well worth your time – and the rewards are worth your cash: as well as clothes there are some really gorgeous art prints available.
