In conversation with: Talia Hussain on the Global Online MBA and running a fashion business
In this interview, I caught up with Talia Hussain from the Global Online MBA class of 2016. Talia tells me about Ramnation, her ethical fashion business, and explains how she balances studying for the flexible Global Online MBA with running a small business and pursuing impactful goals.
Tell me a bit about your company Ramnation.
Ramnation is a boutique line of men’s knitwear developed with a focus on minimising negative environmental impact. The whole product and supply chain has been sourced, produced and manufactured in the UK without the use of harmful chemicals, finishes or dyes. The raw materials used are biodegradable, organically processed and sourced from small flocks of sheep that are not industrially farmed.
Where does your passion for ethical sourcing come from?
I grew up in the Canadian countryside with lots of wildlife. Living and growing up in nature, it became obvious to me that modern industrial practices are really destructive to the environment that we live in. We need to find a new way of managing within the limits of earth’s environmental support system– destroying our fragile home is not the way to go.
