We work with two small manufacturers, one in London and the other in Slovenia. Both factories are amazing in their own unique way! Our London sample studio is close by so we are able to oversee production closely and reduce our carbon footprint when developing our range. The factory we work with for our production quantities in Slovenia follows a strict recycling regime. Let us introduce you to Liniatex!
Liniatex is run by husband and wife duo, Dušan and Saša. They have worked with the same team for the last 20 years and are all lovely! All workers have guaranteed minimum wage plus numerous other benefits including paid commute costs, paid lunch breaks, 24 day holidays, sick pay and statutory 1 year maternity leave.
All fabric waste the factory produces is consciously processed, ensuring the fabric is cut carefully so the off-cuts are as small as possible. These off-cuts and threads are then sent to a processing plant where all waste is used to fill mattresses, as well as being used as insulation for the construction industry.
As well as Liniatex, we work with a small sample studio in the same building as our studio in Hackney. We have developed many of our styles here as well as small runs production. Working locally allows us to be involved in every part of the production process while also reducing our carbon footprint!
As a sustainable and conscious brand, sourcing eco-friendly fabrics is a top priority for us! We work with soft and natural fabrics from organic cotton, to hemp and bamboo, as well as a fibre called ®ECONYL which is made from pre and post-consumer waste including nylon off-cuts, fishing nets and carpet scraps. We work with a mill in Portugal that both weave and print our fabrics. These fabrics are light, breathable and kind to your skin as well as having a low impact on the earth. We work hard to ensure every part of our sampling and production process is as environmentally friendly and ethical as possible!
