I'm Chloé, the founder and designer of Origine Éthique.
I moved from France to the UK in 2008 to study illustration at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA).
After many volunteering experiences working with refugees, homeless people and teenagers with learning difficulties, I wanted to develop a project in which I could combine my values with my illustration skills.
That is how Origine Éthique was born.
I created this brand for everyone who is fighting against intolerance and ignorance; for everyone who believes that ethnic diversity makes the greatness of one city and not its downfall; for every child of the EU who felt let down after the Brexit referendum; for every commuter who prefers to read a book rather than check social media; for every carnivore who gave up their favourite food to stand for animal rights; for every romantic who finds mountains more beautiful than skyscrapers; and for every crazy optimist who still believes in human nature.
