Six Sustainable Designers that we're bringing to The Shard

0 comments / Posted on by TARLEE team

Sustainability in Fashion is a broad term that can encompass many different aspects including the use of eco-friendly materials, natural dyes, limiting the amount of fertilisers and pesticides in the production cycle. Our customers deserve to see the sustainability considerations that have gone into collections and the wise decisions that our designer's make.

Read on to find out about six of the Sustainable Fashion designers that will be featured at the TARLEE Pop Up and what makes them Sustainable. 


Ultra Tee

The designer uses a special printer which prints the t-shirt designs using water. Yes, you read it right! The inks used for printing are water-based, therefore completely eco-friendly.

Every piece by Ultra Tee is 100% sustainable and Organic and Recycled Cotton is used throughout the collection.

Inks and all materials used are controlled and certified by Confidence In Textile.

Artisans & Adventurers 

Owners Amy & Bee regularly travel to Kenya to oversee the jewellery production make checks on working conditions.

Artisans & Adventurers produce their collections in collaboration with small-scale artisans and craft groups. One such group offers people with physical disabilities the opportunity for better livelihoods through training and employment.

The team work with natural, locally-sourced materials such as bone, wood and horn as well as brass and aluminium and are dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of their production methods.

At TARLEE, our mission is to provide an insight into our designer’s attitudes and methods of working and how pieces have been created. We only work with designers who produce in safe and healthy environments and ask all our designers where products are manufactured before we featuring their collection. We are also continuously re-assessing our criteria and tags to ensure that they are accurate and detailed enough for our customers.
