12 Days of Conscious Giving

It's December, which means one thing: it's officially the festive season. With Christmas, Hannukah, and the New Year on our doorsteps, we have curated a range of ethically produced and thoughtful gifts for you and your loved ones. 

We will be releasing a new mini-edit daily for the first 12 days of December, so check back here or on our Instagram Stories to stay updated. Each brand champions craftsmanship and responsible processes, so if you are going to purchase something this season, why not support small, independent brands setting out to make a difference. We hope you love the pieces as much as we do! 

12th December - Powerful in Pink (with a dash of INDOI blue, of course!)

These socks from Stripe + Stare are 100% biodegradable, breaking down fully in just 3-5 years rather than the typical 50 years whilst also not releasing any harmful chemicals into the soil. Win-win!

With an interactive feel, this Fashion Revolution Zine is the ideal gift for anyone wanting to be more clued up on fashion and social and environmental justice in 2022. 

Our Grace Top is one of our most versatile pieces: wear her over a bralette in the summer, or under a jumpsuit come winter. She'll keep you looking bright no matter the weather. 

11th December - A Minimalist's Dream

Is there anything better than simple things done well? Bare Bones Chocolate is just this: crafted from bean to bar under the same roof in Glasgow, Bare Bones make chocolate like you've never had it before.

Orwell + Austen's Semper Femina Cushion Cover is a chic addition to any home - sit it on your favourite chair or snuggle up in bed with this inherently feminine piece. 

Our Farah Black Silk Organza Wrap Top is elegance, refined. Wear her over a tee, a slip dress, or pair with trousers for a go-to monochrome look. 

10th December - For the Slow Fashion Thinker

Take the stress out of gift giving with an INDOI Gift Card. Available from £25, our cards give the receiver the ability to choose a piece they will love forever.

Utterly aligned with our values at INDOI, The Lissome makes for thoughtful, varied, and stimulating reading on slow fashion and the climate. One of our INDOI Women, Rachel Landon, is in fact featured! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Simply throw a Seedbom from Kabloom to distribute a wildflower mix. During the summer, these flowers will attract butterflies and bees, whilst during winter it will product grains and seeds for birds. Just one small step towards a greener world!

9th December - Sit Back and Relax

For those of use experiencing earlier, colder nights in the Northern Hemisphere, is there any better way to spend an evening curled up with a book and candle? Our go-to is the Ylan Ylang + Bergamot candle hand-poured into 100% recycled glass jar, from Wax + Wick Workshop.

The Everlong Tee in Pacific Blue from Smalls Merino is ideal for keeping the child at bay. We're big fans of the thumb holes, tailored fit and, of course, the merino wool!

As easy to wear around home or out and about, our Indoi Samia Silk Pants in Joon Print are lovingly handcrafted in our family workshop. We love teaming her with the Everlong Tee!

8th December - Always in Season

Our Ada Dress is the ultimate trans-seasonal piece - wear her alone with sneakers in the summer, or with buttons undone over jeans and a tee. 

Fresh, in-season flowers delivered weekly and grown to order? Yes please! Freddie's Flowers is a sure fire way to brighten up anyone's home for weeks on end. 

SAYA's Moonflower Hair Slide absorbs and redistributes your natural oils and maintains healthy hair continuously through your wash cycle, all year round. 

 7th December - Small but Mighty

Our Four Rivers Ring, brought to you in association with ISHKAR, not only makes the perfect addition to your everyday look, it also supports Afghan artisans and the preservation of ancient craftsmanship. 

This all-natural sleep spray from Biocol Labs is all you need to drift off into a good night's sleep. Biocol Labs is an independent, family owned and run post-chemical pharmacy, founded in Lisbon in 1977 - so you can sleep soundly in the knowledge that you're supporting a responsible business. 

Crafted out of super soft 100% cotton, using offcuts from our garment production, our Dina Face Mask will protect you and those around you safe. There's even a built in filter pocket, should you want to add in your own medical grade filter. 

6th December - Back to Basics

There's beauty in pure simplicity, such as Wilder Botanic's Organic Herb Infused Body Oil. Featuring our all-time favourite scents of Sandalwood and Cedar, this oil makes the most of mother nature's gifts. 

Meanwhile, our Zof Silk Organza Wrap Top makes a bold statement using the most minimal of shapes and colours. We can guarantee that this will become your wardrobe staple, for now and for years to come. 

Books have always been a go-to for gifting season - and for good reason. This winter, why not gift a second-hand book subscription to a loved one? The premise of the Secondhand Bookshelf is simple but powerful and, incidentally, very affordable. 

 

5th December - Time Savers

Made by a family-run music book maker in the UK, we love The Completist's Undated Daily Planner that features our favourite blues and a minimal layout.

Our Rimi Black Silk Satin Tunic is perhaps one of the easiest, year-round pieces to wear. Requiring minimal thought, slip it on over jeans, leggings or tights during the winter. The sheen of the satin will give you an automatic sense of sparkle. 

Every get frustrated that you can't find a product that can do wonders for both your face and body? Enter Saint Iris Adriatica's Serenity Salve, a resilience-building lotion boosts cell turnover, moisturises, repairs, and tones. No more wasting time on excessive skincare routines! 

4th December - An Ode to the Natural Form

Sophie Alda Studio's Porcelain and Blue Striped Diamond Vase is both made to order and handcrafted, meaning that each version features its own unique inconsistencies. 

Our Anna Blouse features embroidered elements from our bestselling Joon and Dancing Ladies prints. Made from 100% raw, unbleached silk, this is a piece truly grounded in the natural. 

The Hewn Lapis Lazuli Pendant from ISHKAR works seamlessly on its own or layered with other pieces - and echoes our very own heritage in the Indus Valley Civilisation. 

 

3rd December - Creative Spark

Celebrate the imperfections of life with an At Home Kintsugi Kit from The IndytuteKintsugi is the process of repairing ceramics with lacquer and gold, highlighting the cracks and symbolising fragility, strength and beauty. 

Time well spent is perhaps one of the best gifts you can give. For the art-lover in your life, choose a Tate Membership. With free access to shows and exclusive tours, a Tate Membership also helps to support the arts industry - something ever more needed in the wake of the pandemic.

Finally, celebrate the artistry of artisan makers with our Embroidered Sham Wrap Top. Hand embroidered with falling leaf detail in electric lilac hues and white beading, this truly is a piece of wearable art. 

 

2nd December - Pattern Everywhere

Coming in a variety of shades, Octaevo's Sicilia Ceramic Basket (€57.50) is bound to brighten up any kitchen. That said, we certainly have our eye on this very on-brand blue version...

The Diamond and Pearl Sunburst Pendant from Mikal Williams is perfect for anyone looking for a hint of luxury and wearable sunshine.

Our very own Bels Blouse in Joon Print (£195) can be worn in a multitude of ways, showcasing our hallmark print inspired by femininity and the natural world. 

 

1st December - Accessories Galore

Chunky Cashmere Knit Beanie (£48) from Orwell + Austen who create beautiful and playful garments designed to champion environmentally conscious, sustainable, socially responsible, and ethical production. 

Joon Silk Neck Tie (£60) by yours truly, created from remnant silk. Wear as a scarf, belt, or even a headscarf - versatility at its finest.

Atelier Batac Watermelon Blue Crossbody bag (€242): crafted just round the corner from our studio in Barcelona, this is an iconic piece that will last for generations to come.
