Our Sustainable Materials

Every decision we make is geared towards minimising the impact we have on the planet – as a business and individuals. So, from our production processes, to the materials we use and the packaging we choose, we’re always finding new ways to reduce our environmental footprint and sustain our future.

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton is grown without harmful chemicals, leaving the soil, air and water free from contaminants that cause harm.

Our garments are 100% GOTS Approved (Global Organic Textile Standard Certified)

Organic cotton uses 88% less water and 62% less energy than regular cotton.

Reduces Environmental Impact

The main benefit of organic cotton is that the crops aren't treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms. These toxins are harmful to farmers and workers, us as consumers, and entire wildlife eco-systems.


Fair Price for Sustainability

When you buy organic cotton you are investing in water conservation, cleaner air, better soil and farmer livelihoods. Organic cotton is hand-picked, which means that it retains it's form, making it feel softer on your skin, and better looking (always important). Aside from that, organic cotton is chemical free and hypoallergenic. The price for organic cotton is therefore slightly higher.


You can make a Difference

Caring for the world, and the people we share it with is a life choice. Choosing organic cotton is part of this choice. In 2015, 26 million metric tonnes of cotton was produced globally, much of it for the clothing industry. Organic cotton makes up less than 1% of this. By choosing organic over conventional cotton you have the purchasing power to influence brands, manufacturers and even farmers.We’re proud to be helping change this number!


Linen is a naturally biodegradable fibre and can easily be recycled and regenerated.

Linen is uniquely strong, breathable, and actually improves with age.

Linen has a very low environmental footprint as it needs very little water to grow. Additionally the whole plant is used, meaning no waste!

The Ultimate Natural Fibre


A high proportion of our range in made from linen. Aside from its aesthetic appeal, there are lots of reasons why we love linen. Linen is derived from the flax plant, the second-most highly productive fibre crop after hemp. It grows very successfully with limited use of herbicides, pesticides, or other chemicals. The process of turning the flax into linen is also simple and chemical-free.


The beauty of flax is its resilience. It can be grown in poor soils and requires very little water; the flax plant can thrive with just rainwater and without the need for irrigation.


Linen is uniquely strong, it is a very hardwearing fabric, which means you can use our linen products for longer and replace them less often. When linen finally does come to the end of its life, the fibres biodegrade quicker than most fabrics.


Viscose fibre has a unique surface groove structure that makes it extremely smooth, soft and breathable.

Viscose starts its life as a tree, and because trees are a renewable source, viscose is frequently cited as being both environmentally friendly and sustainable.

100% Biodegradable

The Forest Fibre

Viscose is the oldest manufactured fibre, first being produced in 1883 as an alternative to silk. Viscose comes from tree pulp and therefore comes from a renewable source. It is then spun into soft, silky fabric.

One of the major advantages of viscose is that it is 100% biodegradable. We love viscose for all its amazing qualities, it drapes beautifully, is smooth and soft to the touch, and has non-static properties.

Viscose LENZING™

Just like regular viscose, these fibres start their lives as a tree, and because trees are a renewable source, viscose is frequently cited as being both environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Viscose LENZING™ contributes Up to 50% lower emissions and water impact than generic viscose.

You don't sacrifice on comfort for sustainability with Viscose LENZING™.


From beginning to end, the production of this type of viscose is sustainable; from procuring pulp from sustainably forested woods, to responsibly handling water and minimising use of fossil energy sources.

This natural fibre is also certified as compostable and biodegradable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, and therefore can fully revert back to nature.

LENZING™ is certified with the EU Eco-label as meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle: from raw material extraction to production, distribution and disposal, the fibres can be robustly identified in the final product, assuring you that your purchase contains genuine LENZING™ Viscose fibres.

Glass Beads

Glass is a fully recyclable material that can be recycled infinite times.

Our beaded sandals, bags and belts are handcrafted by Kenyan and Indian artisans. We are proud to keep this art alive through trade.

The glass beads are coloured using natural dyes.

Our stunning beaded belts, handbags, and sandals are all made using glass beads.

Glass is a particularly good alternative to plastic because when glass breaks down, it remains safe and stable and releases no harmful chemicals into the surrounding environment.

Glass also takes far less energy to produce and has a long life span.


Leather has the ability to last generations. It can last a lifetime and be passed down from mother to daughter.

We only use leather that is a byproduct of the meat industry.

Our leather is dried in the sun and coloured using natural dyes.


Leather has been embraced and celebrated by our Kenyan artisans for generations. By rejecting leather we would destroy many jobs for individuals who rely on the leather industry for their livelihood.

We only use leather byproducts from the meat industry. The leather would otherwise be wasted. Additionally, our leather is only coloured using natural dyes.

Leather can last a lifetime and be passed on to future generations. It is the antithesis of fast fashion
