I’m Tarn and Ginger + Olive is my side hustle. I’ve been a graphic designer for 32 years. And I just love fonts, however I’m very much a lover of classics. Your Breakfast at Tiffany’s & Chanel kind of classics. Ginger + Olive has been born out of the want for a little more creativity in my working world. Hoping you love what you see here at Ginger + Olive.
I was very careful when I selected my supplier for Ginger + Olive, a lot of research and consideration went into my decision. Which is why I chose to use AS Colour tees and singlets. The key to their sourcing is finding the right people with the right values. Whilst auditing factories and developing their management systems and policies is important at providing an ethical sourcing framework, more important is to find and work with factory owners and management who share AS Colour values, operate a culture of dignity and respect, are in it for the long term, and who like AS Colour are willing to embrace change and continuous improvement. Their suppliers are in Bangladesh and China, and with the continued support and responsive training from Amfori they have raised their standard due-diligence to assess where and what risks have increased during this time to identify areas they could continue to help. Amfori is the leading global business association for open and sustainable trade.
I hope, like me, you enjoy wearing your Ginger + Olive tees and singlets. They're great quality. They wash up really well and they look great on.
It’s been a dream of mine for three years through a lot of research and hitting lots of dead ends. I'm very happy with where I've got to and to have finally launched!
With love, Tarn. ❤️
