Indiebride London takes pride in being a sustainable bridal wear brand. It is important for us to not just create beautiful bohemian wedding dresses but also to take our nature’s wellbeing in consideration. The most important dress of your life can be made respecting the environment and people on it. At Indiebride London, you will know who made your wedding dress and where the materials came from.
You can read more about our sustainable way of production below. If you have ideas or suggestions on how to improve the sustainability in our business, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to hear your thoughts.
Made to order
All our dresses are made to order. This means we don’t hold any dresses in stock. When an order is placed, we will make the dress from scratch. This means we only make a dress when someone wants to wear it on their wedding day. This ensures that every dress we make has a personal connection.
Handcrafted dresses and accessories
At Indiebride London, you work closely with the person that makes your dress. Instead of producing the dresses in a factory somewhere else, we make all our dresses ourselves from the first cut to the last finishings. Each dress and accessory is hand crafted and hand embellished in our London studio using the highest quality laces and silks. When we receive an order, we then order the right materials for that specific dress only. When we receive the materials, we cut the dress and then sew it together. We also make the alterations ourselves if any is needed. We value the handmade nature and quality of our products. Our dresses and accessories have a story behind them.
As we make the dresses at our London studio, we are always able to alter the dress style if the customer wishes so. Changing the dress style makes it truly yours and gives the dress an individual touch.
Usage of cut offs for accessories
In dress production, there is always fabric that is cut off and is usually useless, it ends up in the bin. We keep the offcuts and use them to make our belts and embellish our veils and headpieces. We donate all the offcuts we cannot use to students or organisations to be used in their own projects.
We aim to design our dresses with as little cut waste as possible. The cut waste lace from one dress style can also be another’s lace details.
We prefer to use natural materials; mainly cotton and silk.
We also favour European producers and most of our laces are made in England, Scotland and France. We are constantly looking for new sustainable fabrics and laces to create new beautiful, eco-friendly wedding dresses.
Personal customer service
At Indiebride London, we value personal customer service. It is important for both parties to have only one person of contact who understands every aspect of the production. As an Indiebride London customer, you will be working with the same person throughout the whole process, from the initial trial appointment to the day you get to take your dress home.
Indiebride London is a small business and every bride is special to us.
