Pets Unite Against Human Trafficking
Ethical Clothing Line Features UN-Endorsed Blueheart Tartan
In a campaign to help pets unite against human trafficking, Liberation Kilt Co is proud to supply its UN-endorsed anti-trafficking Blueheart tartan for UK pet clothing brand Lulu & Robbie.
Lulu & Robbie have partnered with Liberation Kilt Co to launch a new line of pet clothing that puts animal welfare first. Included in their four unique styles is the striking ‘Blueheart’ design — the official tartan of the United Nations’ Blue Heart Campaign against human trafficking.
Liberation Kilt Co is a textile designer that promotes worthy social causes, from fossil fuel divestment to freedom of speech. By literally weaving these issues into the fabric of everyday life, the company hopes to raise awareness and inspire like-minded people to connect, create and act in new and meaningful ways.
Professor Giles Jackson, co-founder of Liberation Kilt Co, says:
“It is only fitting that man’s best friend takes a stand against the scourge of human trafficking and what better way than to wear the Blueheart tartan, whose colours and lines symbolise the collective heartbeat of victims of human trafficking.”
Twenty percent of the profits from the sale of Blueheart tartan fabric go to the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons, which supports charities around the world fighting modern-day slavery.
Lee Mounter, Lulu & Robbie’s founder, says:
“These jackets not only promote a worthy social cause, but also put pet welfare first, which is a first for this industry. As practicing veterinarians, my daughter and son-in-law have long been dissatisfied with what’s on the market. For example, many dog jackets are not made from breathable fabrics, which is important because dogs do not perspire. They have worked closely with us to design better alternatives.”
“Partnering with Liberation Kilt Co was a no-brainer. They not only design tartans promoting social causes, but also use sustainably sourced and ethically produced materials. Both our companies make high quality products with a wider social benefit. Lulu & Robbie looks forward to offering pet clothing in a range of Liberation Kilt tartans as our business grows.”
Made from 100% Pure New Wool, Liberation Kilt Co’s tartans are woven in Scotland by Bute Fabrics Ltd, a recipient of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK’s highest accolade for business success. Lulu & Robbie’s Blueheart dog jackets are made in the UK.
Serving pet owners across the UK, Lulu & Robbie’s range is now available online at luluandrobbie.co.uk. Liberation Kilt Co’s tartans are woven to order and available exclusively at liberationkilt.com.
