Ethics & Sustainability

Millie Jane is a slow fashion brand. This slow approach to fashion allows us to distance our brand from the adverse by-products of the fashion industry. Throwaway culture and fast fashion practices negatively impact every step of the production line; from unethical labour practices, unfair wages and the unsustainable use of natural resources.

Millie Jane therefore does, and will always, uphold a commitment to fair, sustainable and ethical practices in order to create high quality garments that can be worn time and time again. 

Why made to order?

Every single Millie Jane piece is made to order in England. The made-to-order nature of our clothing means that we only make what our customers want. We don't mass produce clothes that may not sell. This makes our garments special as it is created especially for you. 

Who makes the clothing?

Our clothing is made with love and care by a small, highly skilled team of independent seamstresses across England. Each garment is designed and sampled by Millie in her studio in London, once we have finalised the designs, the fabric and pattern pieces get sent off to our seamstresses to be made into final garments. Each seamstress sets their own wage so everyone manufacturing our garments are paid fairly. 

What fabrics do you use? 

We are always looking for ways to be kinder to the planet and we use environmentally friendly fabrics wherever we can.  All of our fabrics are sourced from small businesses within the UK.  Our bikinis are made from recycled lycra generated from ocean waste products such as plastic bottles and fishing nets.  Our printed fabrics use eco-friendly inks and are printed using sublimation which is the most sustainable type of print technique. We use GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified fabrics when we can.
