Sustainability

I have carefully sourced beautiful eco-friendly branded gift boxes to package and store your accessory for posterity. These are made from recycled card and only the surface white paper covering is new. The whole box is recyclable – although I recommend keeping your accessory in its gift box to keep it in the best possible condition!

I use eco-friendly, biodegradable, recycled or recyclable gift and postal packaging and work hard to keep the studio as free of single-use plastic and other non-recyclable goods as possible.

I use sustainable satin ribbons for my ribbon tie hairvines. The feel, quality, and the way the ribbons drape are exactly the same as standard satin ribbons but, incredibly, these beautiful ribbons are made from recycled bottles and they're also packaged in recyclable cardboard rather than plastic reels.

This means that if you order any of my gold ribbon tie hairvines the ribbons will be completely sustainable. My silver and rose gold hairvines sit on delicate ivory organza ribbon which also comes on cardboard reels - I haven’t found a sustainable option for this yet but I’m still trying! We can offer an ivory satin as an alternative on request although this doesn’t have the same ethereal quality as the organza.

I'm still working my way through the satin ribbon stocks I use for my bouquets and other bespoke work, but once they run out I will be replacing them with the sustainable satin too.

Where we use materials frequently we buy them in as much bulk as practically possible to keep our carbon footprint and packaging low and we make our hair accessory designs to order to avoid wasteful stockpiling of products.

I try to make designs that are versatile, comfortable, with a fashionable edge and very wearable. My hope is that they will be worn again and again after your wedding day (balls, festivals, honeymoon, date night) so you can feel confident that your consumption of my designs will be ethical as they won't be a single-use accessory. 

I design my pieces to last and to hopefully become an heirloom piece to be passed on to a cherished relative or friend and used again as a much-loved 'something borrowed'.

My bespoke bouquet designs re-use vintage and sentimental jewellery to create a hand-crafted work of art that can be carried down the aisle and then displayed at home and one day become a heirloom accessory to be used by generations to come.

We offer worldwide express courier shipping via DHL and we choose their climate neutral shipping option to offset our carbon impact.

We take our environmental and social responsibility seriously – it’s a work in progress but one we are determined to improve on every day.
