Isle of Wight Bestival have recruited eco fashion brand Rapanui to create and design a Bestival t-shirt from eco friendly materials.
Bestival organiser Rob da Bank is well known for his interest in green issues, and recruited local eco-fashion label Rapanui to design a signature t-shirt for the event. Rapanui make clothing from Ethical, eco-friendly materials in a wind-powered factory, and adapted their popular “I Love Wight t-shirt” for the Bestival.
With acts such as The XX, The King blues, Zane Lowe and Professor Green wearing Rapanui eco clothing, the Bestival has shown how powerful it’s influence is, as the trend setter amongst trend setters – and how the power of fashion, of simply being cool, can be used for some good – to help the environment.
