Our Planet + People
We are committed to working a factories that are not only 100% ethical, but who really care about their people and are completely transparent in their practices. Not only do we believe in the standard of UK manufacturing we strongly believe that being hands on at each stage of the process is vital to the quality of our brand.
We now work with a London factory who shares our vision of sustainability and ethics. They are a family owned business and the quality of their work is first-class.
These are essential in ensuring that your garments arrive undamaged in transit and completely dry. Our poly bags are made from natural materials and are fully biodegradable.
Even our tissue paper is eco-friendly. It is biodegradable, compostable and made from recycled paper.
We wanted a handy go-to bag to compliment your purchase for everyday use as you and your child go about your day. Whether it’s used as a small organiser for suitcases, to carry toys or to pop into your day bag with your little one’s treats we feel this bespoke gift is something our customers deserve.
The workshop we use to produce these cotton bags operates under European standards & salaries. There is a team of about 40 people at this workshop and these are handmade using 100% eco-friendly dyed cotton.
Unfortunately, the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. From the pesticides used on crops and the consumption of water used while making the fabric, to the microfibres from synthetic fabrics that are shed in regular washes and then ingested by marine life. Each stage of the process treads on our planet.
So what does that mean for us? We believe in doing the best we can to tread a little lighter. We are committed to steering away from the synthetic fibres used in manufacturing (e.g. polyester which is made from petrol and coal).
We believe innovation and research is the key to the most eco-friendly and safe fibres. New fabrics are still being invented as alternatives to the existing ones. Ones on our radar include TENCEL™ Luxe which is made from renewable wood sources and Orange Fiber produced from citrus juice by-products is one of our current trial fibres.
A natural fibre which is one of the most hypoallergenic and luxuriously soft on our skin. It is biodegradable, unlike polyester and nylon which can take between 20 – 200 years to decompose.
Silk worms eat mulberry leaves, and mulberry trees require fewer chemical inputs and use less water than cotton.
While we explored organic/peace silks which are better for the silk worm (using broken cocoons) there are quality issues in this fabric, resulting in more waste in the manufacturing & printing processes. We hope to soon have access to silk alternatives such as those that use renewable wood sources and citrus by-products.
