Wool is a staple fibre in our collection and we refuse to use any wool products where the sheep have been mulesed. Mulesing is a cruel and painful way of removing a sheep’s skin that has become infested with flies, without using any pain relief or anaesthetic. We believe there are much more humane ways of doing this.
By using natural and organic fibres rather than synthetic and man-made materials, we are helping to protect the environment. Pesticides that are used in non-organic farming contaminate water supply and surrounding land, endangering animals and their natural habitats.
When polyester and synthetic garments are washed, micro plastics are released into our water system. This is a huge issue, polluting our seas and severely harming the wildlife.
We use a very small percentage of leather in our accessories. We only ever use leather from Europe that is a by-product of the meat industry, which would otherwise go to waste.
It goes without saying that we use no fur, angora, mohair or exotic skins.
