When you think of Hackney, what comes to mind? Markets, Fashion, good you are right where we want you. You may have noticed some little tote bags around some of the markets in Hackney, this is all for a good cause, ‘Love Hackney, Shop Local’ and is helping promote fashion, in a way, and also encouraging locals and visitors to shop from the markets to benefit local businesses instead of those who wouldn’t exactly miss your money. So you could help spread the initiative by spending £10 or more where you will be rewarded with a free tote bag* and also a secondary environmental benefit comes from this, saving on carrier bags. Plus you can reuse these whenever, forever and ever. The bags were created by Hackney-based fashion designers Atalanta Weller or Simone Rocha, take a look…
*Participating traders will have a Love Hackney, Shop Local sign on their stalls and will distribute tokens to claim your bag in exchange for purchases.
