Our materials

 

We continually look for beautiful sustainable fabrics and laces to create new heirloom-quality and eco-friendly wedding gowns and spend an enormous amount of time sourcing them. Our materials are among the things we are most proud of because sustainability is a cause dear to our hearts. For full material information for each dress, please go to the material tab on the product pages.

 

Made in Great Britain

The majority of the lace we use is produced in the UK. The laces are either 100% cotton or primarily cotton, with a small amount of nylon or polyamide added to reduce pilling. We also use silks that are produced in the UK from scratch (yes, from the mulberry tree eating silkworms) by a small manufacturer. Although their ahimsa silk is organic, it is no longer certified. Certification is expensive, and some small businesses simply cannot afford it. Unlike regular silk, Ahimsa silk is produced without killing the silkworms. Silk has the same thermoregulatory properties as bamboo so it's perfect for creating comfortable wedding dresses.

Organic

All our long gowns are lined with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class 1, Ecocert and OCIA certified organic bamboo. Our bamboo lining is soft and smooth to the touch, and it feels luxurious to wear. Because of its thermoregulatory properties, bamboo is the perfect lining for both summer weddings and winter weddings, as bamboo is a breathable fibre and keeps you feeling fresh and cool when it's hot and warm when it's cold without making you perspire. 

  

High-quality and vegan

Most of our dresses are vegan. Not only vegan, but sustainably vegan. The local production or certification of our materials ensures that they are sustainable as well as made to the highest quality.
