My name is Karina Michel. I am a graduate of the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Back in March 09 I moved to India to work for Pratibha Syntex Pvt. Ltd. They are one of  the world’s largest and most progressive vertically-integrated garment manufacturers representing about 30,000 organic farmers in India. I lived inside the factory compound for 18 months researching sustainability at the factory level and now I’ve moved to London to study MA Fashion and the Environment at the London College of Fashion. I’ve continued to work for Pratibha while I’m studying and hope to use this blog as a window into the world of eco fashion. I’ll be posting what I learn, what I see, and what I experience in this burgeoning cultural shift of sustainability.
