SUSTAINABILITY

Fields & Ferns is guided by nature. We design whimsical and feminine clothing, interwoven with sustainable materials so that you can honour nature with every purchase.

 

No fashion brand can be 100% sustainable. That being said, we try to do everything we can to ensure that our fabric, manufacturing, packaging and garments are sourced in the most sustainable, circular, and responsible way possible. Every aspect of Fields & Ferns aims to follow ethical and sustainable standards. As the brand grows, we commit to implementing even more sustainable practices into our business.

Sourcing materials

The majority of Fields & Ferns’ clothing is made from upcycled deadstock materials from local London factories or fashion businesses that would otherwise be thrown away. By using deadstock fabric, Fields & Ferns not only diverts waste from landfill but also saves precious energy that would otherwise be used to create new materials. At this moment in time whenever Fields & Ferns cannot use deadstock fabric, it uses natural fibres to not add microplastics into the environment. As Fields & Ferns grows, the aim is to not only use deadstock fabric but also sustainable recycled textiles, as well as high quality natural and organic fibres. Fields & Ferns’ jewellery collection currently uses glass beads, silver wire, bio resins, and stainless steel.

Manufacturing

 

Currently, all of Fields & Ferns’ clothing is made with love in its tiny East London Hackney studio. Every item is carefully hand-sewn, hand-embroidered and hand-beaded by us.

Small Batch

 

Fields & Ferns makes limited handmade quantities and uses a made-to-order system in an attempt to not add to the abundance of waste that plagues the fashion industry.

 

Packaging

 

Fields & Ferns is committed to limiting its negative impact on the environment and that’s why everything from its packaging, to its inserts, to its tissue paper, is made from 100% post-consumer recycled content or compostable materials.
