Who Made Your Pants?

Gorgeous Pants. By women, for women.

Bread and Roses on International Worker’s Day

One hundred and one years ago, in Lawrence, Massachusetts, a woman called Rose Schniederman spoke the following words

“What the woman who labors wants is the right to live, not simply exist — the right to life as the rich woman has the right to life, and the sun and music and art. You have nothing that the humblest worker has not a right to have also. The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too. Help, you women of privilege, give her the ballot to fight with.”

Rose was speaking out about the conditions that were rife in so many American clothing factories of the day. Sadly, recent events show us that these conditions are not yet entirely consigned to history.

We love Rose’s speech, and we know that like us, you love the idea that a fair days work deserves a fair days pay – for not just Bread, but Roses too. And so we’re launching our latest pants pack, ‘Bread and Roses’ with £15 off, today, on International Workers Day – and every penny spent will go back to supporting our team – who knows, maybe they’ll buy roses for their kitchen table.

‘Bread and Roses‘ includes the newest addition to our pants family, the beautiful Rosa Rosa, her sister Dot Matrix, and a pair of our classic stretch shorts in Red. It is a welcome cheery blast of colour to what we hope might finally be spring!

We hope you will join us in celebrating Rose Schniederman and all those unsung women (and men) around the world who have fought for the changes that keep us safer and happier at work, that recognise the humanity and dignity of us all, and who recognise, like another great woman, Emma Goldman, that we need more than bread to get us through. Emma wanted ‘…freedom, the right to self-expression, everybody’s right to beautiful, radiant things’ – and we wholeheartedly agree.
