Today is launch day for the second ELISE collection, giving everyone the chance to join RFSU’s almost century-long fight for body rights.

When deciding on an organisation to work with for our latest fashion flea, it was a pretty easy choice. RFSU is a Swedish non-profit organisation that has been fighting for body rights since 1933, and we were thrilled to be able to join in and support their cause. In September last year, RFSU launched fashion brand ELISE—named after the organisation’s founder Elise Ottesen-Jensen—wanting to give people a chance to take a stand for body rights, that is: every individual’s right to their own body, sexuality and identity.  

Collection #2 is made up by a few unisex pieces crafted from organic cotton and produced according to Fair Wear Foundation’s code of conduct. All carry strong statement messages like “R.I.P. Boys Being Boys”, “Dare to Care”, “Mansplainer Slayer” and “Women Making History”, and the profits go to RFSU’s work with opinion forming and sex education, both in Sweden and abroad. Check out the full collection here.

Let’s stand up for body rights together, and look cool while we do it!
