There are so many benefits to caring for our clothes well; the long life we can give our clothes, keeping them in good condition, being able to pass them on when that time eventually comes. And it can even save us money and help save energy and resources for the planet at the same time! This is caring for our clothes sustainably. The longer the life, keeping the circle going, this allows our clothes to participate in a more sustainable fashion lifecycle.
Whilst being selective about our fabric choices at Saywood, the process of production is also really important to us, as the process has a huge impact on the sustainability of the product and consumption of resources. Our red check cotton cloth, used in our Jules shirt and Etta dress, was sourced from Riopele in Portugal, from deadstock. Riopele are a fabric mill improving on their production processes in a big way.
