We believe that fashion should be ethical and sustainable. Free from cruelty, exploitation and other harmful practices. Which is why we carefully select the fabrics we use to minimise their impact on the environment, animal welfare and workers’ rights.
Rescue Sheep Wool
Our Rescue Sheep Wool garments are made using wool from special flock of 600 Shetland and Wensleydale rescue sheep. Considered industry waste, each animal would have been killed had they not been rescued. Instead they are now lovingly cared for to stringently high welfare standards at their new home in North Yorkshire.
For every rescue sheep wool garment sold we donate a percentage of the profits back to ensure the flock continues to thrive.
Enjoy the luxury of pure wool without the cruelty.
Our organic cotton is 100% certified. Soft, kind to the skin and better for the environment. Grown without the use of harmful pesticides, our cotton farmers employ techniques like crop rotation to manage pests and maintain strong, nutrient rich soil that can be farmed year after year without depletion.
We use low impact approved chemical dyes which are efficient and accepted as being safe. The waste from this process is naturally treated so that the water can be recycled and the organic compounds can be separated, dried and used as fertilizer.
Organic Bamboo Silk
Bamboo Silk is an great vegan alternative to traditional silk. Soft and durable with a beautiful drape. Bamboo grows quickly without the need for pesticides and fertilisers. Our bamboo silk is 100% certified organic as being free from harmful chemicals.
Silk is one of the softest fabrics on the planet, shiny, breathable and comfortable. Unfortunately traditional silk production involves killing the silk worm before it emerges from the cocoon, ensuring it doesn’t break the silk fibres in the process.
With our animal-friendly silk, the silk is extracted after the silkworm has completed metamorphosis and emerged from the cocoon as a moth. Each cocoon is checked individually to ensure the moth has emerged before the silk thread is spun. This process of silk production ensures there is no killing, no cruelty. You will only find, animal friendly, wild silk in our clothes.
Linen is a fabulous fabric and has a huge number of advantages. Linen is a totally sustainable fabric, if the flax plants are cared for properly. Linen is very breathable, which means that those who struggle with keeping cool absolutely love linen clothes. Linen is created from a totally natural material and is completely biodegradable, which means that when someone has finished with a piece of linen it does not sit in a landfill site, one of the biggest causes of global warming.
We only use superior quality Irish linen in our collections.
Roll End Fabric
The fashion industry is renowned for the excess it creates. To combat this we buy unused ‘roll end’ fabric from larger fashion brands in order to consume excess within the fashion industry before it becomes waste. Although these fabrics may have been produced using environmentally damaging methods we believe it’s more responsible to turn these fabrics in to stylish garments than them going to landfill.
We use whatever fabric is left on the rolls until it runs out. Consequently we typically make less than 30 pieces in each style. Due to this limited production method our roll end garments are very exclusive and can’t be repeated.
Fair trade gives small-scale farmers in developing countries the power to improve their livelihoods by ensuring they receive a fair and stable price for their crop and the additional premium paid is used by the farmers for community development projects.
Our fair trade partners reinvest all profits into the company or to help the weavers and distribute 10% of Net profits to staff and fund local community initiatives.
Made in England
We are morally opposed to sweatshop manufacturing and the exploitation of cheap labour. Instead we commit ourselves to supporting local businesses and helping to rebuild the UK textile industry. By keeping production close to home we can ensure our high ethical standards are upheld throughout the supply chain and keep our carbon footprint as small as possible.
