The people behind our clothes

We are proud to produce over 85% of our products here in the UK, with the remainder coming from western Europe. The majority of our factory facilities are carbon neutral, and we’re proud that many of our factories offer not only brilliant environments in which to work, but they support their local communities, too. For example, our factory in Leicester has an academy that trains unemployed residents in sewing, allowing them to seek skilled work in the future.

Another reason we selected our various factories is due to their hands-on approach to producing their garments, meaning that each and every item made for Lavender Hill Clothing has passed through several pairs of skilled hands before it reaches our customers.

Why sustainability and ethics are so important to us

We may be biased, but we believe we need to take great care in preserving the environment and tread as lightly as we can on this planet. This applies to our factories and the way in which we operate, with our carbon neutral environments being just one of the ways we uphold our environmental standards.

We also believe that ethical clothing is the way forward: core pieces that are designed to last rather than fast pieces that fall apart after a couple of washes. All of our garments are rigorously quality tested and our customer reviews are testament to that.

How you can champion sustainability & ethics

For such an important question, the answer is surprisingly simple: seeking out brands that have sustainable and ethical credentials. Luckily, at Lavender Hill Clothing we’ve been motivated by sustainability and ethics from our very beginning, so you can be sure that you know what’s gone into your garment and who made it.
