Feel Good Manufacturing

Working in a factory in a natural surrounding

Feel good manufacturing makes us happy at work.

Isn't it fun giving gifts?

 

It's  like the joy of finding a bargain.

Finding ways to give away waste products.

Fabric off cuts – Organic, Fairtrade and standard fabric are sorted and donated to our local scrap store.

Thread cones- are saved and  are snapped up by local school and local craftspeople.

Boot boxes - are saved and donated to small local firms for use in their distribution.

Shirt packaging  -such as tissue paper, clips, board are all saved for the scrap store.

Barnados - collects the spare clothing we accumulate over the year. Last year a van full!

 

Waste products from the clothing factory for donation

The day the BBC visited us.

Yes its a while ago.  But we're still very proud.  They spent the afternoon and made a short film for their Working Lunch programme.  They were particularly interested in our own brand Cotton Roots. We manufactured organic aprons dyed naturally, using coffee, tea and pomegranate.

It was exciting times.

Today we make aprons from regenerated cotton, recycled plastic, organic cotton, Fairtrade cotton.

Coming soon, aprons and bags using upcycled marine plastic made from Seaqual fibres.

 

Sustainable certifications for clothing

Ethical certifications for our clothing range

The clothing in our website catalogue shows which sustainable and ethical certifications each item of clothing has. This is so important to us, and to many of our customers. Charities, museums, businesses, and clubs come to us as they consider how, where, and who makes the clothing to be critical to their final choice. 

 

So above each item you will see any certifications which apply, and they each link to more information.

You will find more information about the main certifications and awards on our Clothing Ethical Certifications page.

Packaging

Success! We have been onto a winner with this solution. Instead of packing every item of clothing in a bag we now pack them in pre used boxes and wrap them carefully in recycled brown craft paper. We estimate that now around 96% of our orders are wrapped this way.  Customers are happy, we are happy, and we help the environment.

Whenever individual packing is an absolute requirement, then we use bags which are recyclable.

Boxes – all boxes are reused, only if they are damaged beyond repair do we send them to our recycling bin.


THE NICE THING ABOUT TEAMWORK
IS YOU HAVE OTHERS ON YOUR SIDE
