Fashion Sustainable Dresses

Our sustainable clothes are made from natural, organic or recycled fabrics sourced from across Europe. As part of our sustainable approach to fashion, we work with high-end, often family-run artisan factories and ethical workshops in the UK and Italy to use on-demand production and innovative, eco-friendly techniques such as seamless knitting (among others) to minimize unnecessary waste of fabrics.

We also set ourselves apart from other fashion brands by offering complimentary customization services, because we want to make quality clothing that fit you perfectly so you’ll wear them longer.

We think of ourselves as modern-day treasure hunters. We source high quality surplus, aka excess, and sustainable fabric from European factories, warehouses, mills and even directly from luxury brands.

Production runs are wholly dependent upon the size of each roll when we find it. Therefore, everything we produce is part of a limited edition, making it extra special.

Learn about this garments sustainable attributes and how it is helping us save the planet, while making it fashion.

  • Made Locally

    We make everything within 150 miles of each fabric source. Not only does this minimise our carbon footprint, but it also means that the producers often have a greater knowledge of these materials because they have worked with them before.

  • Recyclable

    Using natural fibres means that our products can be fully recycled in the future.

  • On-Demand Production

    As a digital-first brand, we are able to produce our clothes on-demand. We produce our garments in small batches, as you order them, in order to reduce over-production, use less energy, and eliminate excess waste. 

  • Artisanal

    Our garments are handcrafted in specialist, family-run European factories and workshops that uphold the standards of traditional high-end manufacturing. Small production ensures there are fewer emissions than mass- produced items, the fashion is personal, and the design process is valued.



    This garment does not contain any animal skins.
