Rachelle and Ziyo are the creative tour de force behind this beautiful label, they started out in 2018 after working in the fashion industry for many years and witnessing firsthand the waste and damage of trend-driven practices

 

They have made it their mission is to create a brand that is timeless, enduring and sustainable. Their determination to continually improve and grow in a responsible way is admirable to say the least. The collections are crafted with limited styles, in sustainable plant-based fabrics and in small batches to avoid any waste. They focus on slow production, with respect for their garment workers who receive fair wages, a safe working environment and zero overtime

The designs are high quality and immaculate, and the dreamy feminine cuts are both effortless and timeless, meaning these pieces will be your go-tos for many a year

I curate a select few pieces from their seasonal collections and send them from my London based studio

April March, UK

Ethical & sustainable modern treasures, fine jewellery handcrafted in Brighton by Sarah. April March is a small British brand inspired by ancient artefacts, ritual and nature.

I have been working with Sarah for almost a year now and am continually impressed and inspired by her creativity and craftsmanship, her pieces are classic and feminine with a contemporary-natural design and are available in recycled silver with the option of having them plated in fairmined gold vermeil - timeless forever pieces. In her own words;

"Sustainability the core of everything we do. We are environmentally conscious and honest in our approach. All of our pieces are handcrafted in our workshop using the finest responsibly sourced materials where possible supplied by small scale accredited British suppliers.

We pledge to only work with ethically conscious suppliers who offer transparency within their supply chain so that we can trace the raw materials back to their roots.  ​We are by no means perfect but we are working on it and want to minimise the impact our small brand has the planet; the people and animals who live on it."

the pieces are prepped in Sarah's workshop before being sent to you, find the processing details here

Dreams Jumper, Canada

A small woman-owned business that creates beautiful home goods with natural materials who are focused on social and environmental good.

 

They choose their materials carefully and collaborate with their manufacturing partners to reduce waste, chemicals, and plastics that damage our planet's ecosystems. Classic linens that are built to last.

Dream Jumpers pledge to provide fair & safe working circumstances and the factories employ energy efficient, renewable sources to reduce the impact on the environment. Their packaging is made with natural, reusable or recyclable materials

They use a closed-loop approach, which means that every product and by-product they make is regenerative or reusable. Durability is a significant component of their design so that each item lasts and they use leftover linen to make handcrafted accessories, extending the life of the materials and reducing the amount of energy used in the manufacturing process
