I only use natural fabrics, with organic cotton thread, so at the end of their life, our products fully biodegrade.
The linen is woven in an Oeko-Tex certified mill, run on green energy. It's stain resistant, naturally anti-fungal & anti-bacterial.
Hemp doesn't require harmful pesticides or fertilisers in the growing process. Requiring only a fifth of water that cotton requires to grow, the plants also leave the soil in better condition, enriching the land.
I don't use any plastic in my packaging, instead, orders are shipped in card envelopes that can easily be reused, recycled, or composted (shred and soak in water first).
Individual products are packaged in a recycled paper wrapper, secured with paper tape.
My woven labels are made from 100% organic cotton, printed with vegetable inks.
With all of the packaging sourced from and made in the UK, my commitment to sustainability goes across the business.
Nothing is wasted here, every scrap of fabric is saved as I'm always finding ways to use it up, thus avoiding landfill.
Offcuts from larger products are used to cut and make smaller products, the tiny scraps leftover are saved for fabric garlands.
Selvedge lengths are currently being used by another local business to crochet baskets.
