If keeping things minimalist, classy and also ethical is on your fashion to-do list, browse through the collection at Motherhouse. Started by Japanese designer Eriko Yamaguchi, the brand focuses on ethically made bags, jewellery and more. Materials are sourced (also ethically) from developing countries like Bangladesh where it gets jute and leather and Nepal for its high-quality cashmere and silk.
The brand is also very involved in many charity and welfare programmes. Instead of a customer loyalty system which only the shopper can benefit from, the in-store Social Point Card is where you shop to accumulate points which you can use to engage in various charity activities. Motherhouse has been active in providing housing, shelter and daily commodities to victims of a cyclone in Bangladesh and a mass earthquake in Nepal.
