1. We use natural fibres.
We love natural fibres and are strong believers in their contribution to our general wellbeing & comfort. We also believe natural fibres lend a superior quality and longevity to clothing that isn’t found in synthetic alternatives.
Wool is renewable – healthy sheep will grow a new fleece every year. It is biodegradable – if it is returned to soil it is relatively quick to decompose and in doing so returns nutrients back to the earth. It is durable – natural fibres have an intrinsic strength and will age well. Finally it is recyclable – up-cycling, re-fashioning, recycling… it can be used over and over again.
2. We know who made our clothes:
All our clothes & accessories are made in either the UK or Italy. Where possible we strive for production in the UK. When this is not possible, we stay within the E.U where labour rights are strong and enforced. Where the decision is taken to manufacture outside of the UK, it’s on the basis of technical capability, capacity and quality, never cost. We have personally visited our factory in Italy, met with the designers, knitters, technical and clerical teams. We have been working with them for over 2 years prior to our launch and have been able to build a great rapport.
3. We produce quality not quantity:
Our range is consciously small, allowing us to focus on the detail and quality of the individual items. Like a great chef, we will keep the menu short but do it well. We are also very lucky to be partnering with factories that are happy to work with us in small quantities. This reduces the potential for wastage of materials throughout the supply chain.
4. We give something back:
We’d like our activities to have a lasting, positive impact on our environment. 10% of the profit on each sale goes straight to the Flock Fund - supporting three charities: Lend with Care, Unseen and Trees for Cities.
