Who Made My Clothes- Sugarhill Brighton
In response to #whomademyclothes for Fashion Revolution Week we are now going to look at SUGARHILL BRIGHTON- our best selling British brand.
Here is their statement on how their clothes are designed and sourced:
The following is a statement direct from the brand:
Organic cotton is grown without the use of fertilizers, pesticides or any other toxic chemicals. The eco-conscious methods used in organic farming, support a sustainable environment, helping to maintain soil fertility resulting in 100% natural cotton, with no hidden nasties.
The majority of our woven styles are made from viscose, a man-made fibre made from sustainable wood and bamboo pulp. Viscose is known as a 'semi-synthetic fibre' to reflect the combination of the natural raw materials and the chemical manufacturing process that turns the pulp into usable fibres.
From May 2018, All our online orders will be sent out in 100% plastic free, recycled paper packaging.
