Our Materials

We choose high quality fabrics and yarns with a controlled supply chain. Each product aims to combine quality with ethics and a respect for nature, prioritising natural, organic and recycled fibres. We want to be clear about the true impact of our choices and why we’ve made them.


Organic print

The ink and printing techniques on the lining of the jackets are GOTS-certified, which mandates that the pre-treatments, printing and finishing are non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals. The process is water-efficient and treats waste effluents using eco-sustainable processes.


Our buttons are made out of horn that is a by-product of meat production.


Our labels are made from undyed organic cotton.

Our Suppliers & Manufacturers

To minimise CO2 emissions, the majority of our supply chain operates within Europe – we partner with European mills and manufacturers where possible. We’ve selected suppliers carefully based on the quality of their work, but in choosing a partner we also prioritise business that demonstrate strong innovation and commitment to reducing their environmental impact, as well as respect for social and ethical requirements.
The factories we work with directly supply in small quantities. All uphold European working standards.

Sustainability Framework

In 2015, all United Nations member states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a blueprint to tackle a variety of global challenges, such as poverty, human rights and the climate crisis, by 2030.

In that agenda, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were laid out. The 17 goals are an urgent call to action, each addressing one major challenge facing the world, from hunger to inequality. The goals recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling the world’s environmental emergency.

Our approach to impact and sustainability has been informed by the SDGs, with a particular focus on the following goals.
