Ethical Practice

Our ethical values can be divided into 3 parts, the fabric, production and zero waste. With one main aim, to protect the planet by being environmental and socially responsible. We believe nature is the key to living!

 

Our founder has been demonstrating and protesting to protect the planet since 2002, She feels very strongly about environmental and human rights, believing we are all connected in the eco-system. This means the garments are ethically made by a small team of tailors and the fabrics don't harm the environment but in fact reduce plastic waste and plant re-growth.

We use 93% Bamboo based fabric. Bamboo grows rapidly, needs very little water, fertilizer, or pesticides, and sequesters a large amount of carbon dioxide, absorbing five times more carbon dioxide and 35% more oxygen than similar plants.

The fabric is made in Italy, created using discarded materials that were 100% nylon (such as fishing nets and Tulle) this fabric is 78% Recycled polyamide and 22% Elastane and certainly meets the high quality our customers expect - Made from Econyl.

We work with tailors to make a small production of garments, this means each collection is limited edition. 

Making small amount of garments means less waste from production, we believe in slow rather than mass produced fashion and quality over quantity.

The founder makes the patterns and works closely with the tailors in productions. Making it a team effort.

The fabric is hand dyed with natural dyes that don't harm the environment. 

We used silk screen printing, rather then digital keeping it authentic and handmade.

ECO-FRIENDLY

FABRICS

The brand aims to stay as environmentally friendly as possible by using natural fabrics (bamboo, hemp & pure cotton) and recycling plastic, from sea waste. Bamboo is 100% biodegradable and is naturally grown without the intensive use of chemicals. 

ETHICAL

MANUFACTURING

We like to create high quality garments and support sustainable fashion. We aim to keep a ethical and transparent supply chain. That is against fast fashion, that is often wasteful and harmful to the environment.
