The temperatures are dropping and it is so dark outside that the light that bathed us throughout summer seems a long way away.
The autumn months and winter slog can get your down but the Big Issue Shop is here to light the way with the wonderful woollen creations from GLOW.
The social enterprise is the brainchild of London fashion designer and stylist Comet Chukura and offers knitwear that will make you stand out from the crowd, literally.
Each design is hand crocheted by disadvantaged women in London enabling them to hone work skills while providing them with a supplementary income and allowing them to become part of a greater community.
The goal is to change how consumers wear and interact with ethical, functional-fashionable pieces that look good, do good and feel good.
And the results are packed with warmth and protection, featuring a light-reflective fibreglass fused into the fibres of the yarn. Although you can’t feel it on your skin, you will see it when it catches the light, living up to the GLOW billing.
