Baby Blue Summer Dress With Sleeves - Cat Turner

Ethical Fashion London

Each Cat Turner summer dress is proudly made in one of two ethical facilities in London - a studio in West London and a work space in East London.

Choosing to make our collections in London, on our home ground, means that:

~ We are bound by UK law which, as a basic measure, means more stringent regulations and checks than certain other countries around the world with regards to human rights and environmental practices.

~ We can foster a closer relationship with our highly skilled teams of garment creators, due to the proximity of the sites, and have greater ongoing visibility, able to just "pop in" to see how things are going at any time.

      Sustainability Measures

      Secondly, we are keen to do what we can to minimise any harm to the environment.

      This is work in progress and we are well aware that there is ongoing room for improvement, but here are several ways in which we are trying to be a little more mindful of sustainability issues:

      ~ We use quality fabrics from Europe and make high-end summer wear pieces in London, designed to last. This ensures we are not disposable fast fashion and minimises our carbon footprint.

      ~ All our fabrics have the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. This relates to how the fabrics are processed (e.g. dyes and finishes) and means that textiles with this certification are free from substances harmful to health, as tested and certified by an internationally recognised institute.

      ~ We have started to use more environmentally friendly fabrics such as Tencel, and will look at opportunities to use more.

      ~ We are mindful of the marketing materials and packaging we use. We made a point of adapting our original business card design to work on an uncoated card, and our swing tag to work on an unlaminated card, to make them both recyclable. Our cardboard boxes, tissue paper and branded stationery are all recyclable.
