A step in the right direction; our Founder reflects on her sustainable goals

This year more than ever it became apparent that the people who are going to save the planet from climate change are you, me and millions of school children. Not our politicians. As citizens of this world and as consumers, we have the opportunity to turn things around through making changes to our lifestyle and breaking with convention. My journey towards leading a more sustainable lifestyle started for real in 2014, although I have been passionate about saving the planet since my early teens. Since 2014, I have set myself a handful of sustainability related goals each year. They are all relatively small steps, but combined they will make a difference. As 2019 is coming to an end, I am...

Sex up your open back outfits with stunning sustainable lingerie

With Christmas Party season just around the corner, now is the time to sex up your open back dresses and tops with some stunning lace lingerie. Given that most lace lingerie on the market is made from unsustainable fibres such as virgin polyester, virgin polyamide (nylon) or conventional silk, it can be hard to marry a sustainable lifestyle with an alluring look.

It may sound strange that a sustainable fashion brand ships its orders in plastic, albeit 100% recycled plastic, and I would like to share the reasons why with you. One of the things that we have learned on the road to building a sustainable fashion brand is that there are few truly sustainable options at the moment when it comes to materials....

In fact, many of those things will make your holiday even more enjoyable – and I am going to share some of my favourites in this blog post. Travelling in the age of climate changeWe are all familiar with climate change, and in an ideal world every single one of us would change our lifestyle to become 100% sustainable starting today.

How to choose fashion with a low environmental footprint – a quick guide to sustainable fibres

Sustainable fashion is one of the fastest-growing trends judging by this spring’s fashion weeks in London, New York and other big cities. And not only that, sustainable fashion is a trend that’s here to stay until it becomes the norm – unlike the recent somewhat strange see-through plastic trend (what was that about?) For many of us it means having to familiarise ourselves with fibres used in fashion and their environmental footprint – and it also means rethinking what we thought we knew about fashion fibres. Some of the fibres that we have been taught were good for us and the environment are actually not so great, while some of the better ones are still fairly unknown, making it a...
