We are one very the few fashion labels in the world to leverage the true benefits of surplus materials. Surplus is often called deadstock/ production left over. This material is essentially pre-consumer waste whereas a fashion house orders excess fabric to cover production and other losses.
Let's start with visualisation first. Imagine that there is a fabric out there which uses absolutely zero natural resources to produce, people to manufacture, and causes no harm to animals or other living creatures during production. Now, this is surplus.
• No land or pesticides to grow
• Zero-waste generated
• Zero chemicals & water used to dye
• No labour to produce
• Absolutely no carbon footprint created
How is it possible? Because this a ready-produced fabric, that has ran through the production and turned out to be over-produced excess. We supply these materials from our trusted UK-based supplier in order to avoid even more waste on our landfills.
Now, bear in mind it may appear in the consumer's mindset that surplus is somewhat of a second hand, low-quality, or damaged fabric; in fact this material is very much like its raw stock version, it's just not needed anymore.

In addition we use:
• Lyocell Bamboo (UK)
• French Chantilly laces from organic cotton (France)
• GRS Certified Recycled Polyamide elastics (Hungary)
• 24K gold plated components (France)
