Discover the sustainability of UK textiles
“Nature is not something that must be tamed or dominated, but something that thrives on balance and harmony.”
Only 20% of our raw materials are sourced in Europe meaning 80% of the environmental impacts generated by Europe’s textile consumption take place elsewhere. Over 90% of the land use impact occurs outside Europe*.
The UK, experts in natural fibres, is leading on global land stewardship programmes, ensuring wellbeing of animals at the source of our fibres and protecting the environments in which they live. Active collaborations are delivering climate-resilient farming systems, delivering sustainable and ethical raw materials with positive impact.
