I’m Recycled Fabric
Did you know the tag is completely natural and biodegradable? Made with FSC certified paper, cotton twine and a compostable lock mechanism made out of corn starch!

Made in Europe
Products with this certification are solely Made in Europe. The total distance travelled as a garment is greatly reduced compared to production in countries further away. This minimises the carbon footprint to minimise our impact on the planet
Recycled materials have been used in the production of the fabric. The recycled materials used are either Pre-consumer or Post-consumer. Pre-consumer recycling is the reclamation of waste materials that were created during the process of manufacturing or delivering goods prior to their delivery to a consumer. Post-consumer refers to a finished material that would normally be disposed of as solid waste due to it having reached its intended end-use and completed its life cycle as a consumer item
Garments that are ethically made have come from factories that have signed our code of conduct ensuring the highest ethical standards are met. These include living wages, safe conditions, regulated working hours and strictly no child labour
We are increasingly using recycled fabrics in our collections, reducing the need for new materials and the resources to process them. It is part of our commitment to a circular economy, where materials are used and reused as part of an infinite loop. Using a mechanical process (no need for more chemicals), together with our production partners, we transform “waste” into high quality fabrics. This is one of them!
We hope you enjoy wearing this piece knowing special care has been put into its creation.
