Sustainability is a given at GUARDI. All our garments are made from either sustainable and recycled materials or rescued deadstock fabrics, that would have otherwise been sent to landfill.
We believe that designing a fashionable collection is essential, but the process of production is more important to ensure the final product is of high quality. We are strong supporters of mindful consumption, meaning that all our garments are constructed to last.
We create limited edition collections often, but this doesn't mean we mass-produce clothing with a weeks turnaround time. Each design is produced in limited quantities and we keep very little stock. This means we can be a lot less wasteful and create garments that no one else will be wearing at the party.
There are many people involved in the entire process of a clothing collection and often they work under terrible conditions. That’s why we built our own family-run ethical factory in Europe where all our employees are fairly paid and offered flexible hours.
We value and take care of our workers as people are one of the most important assets of any business. We are strong supporters of #fashionrevolution. Because all of our resources are in-house, including manufacturing, it makes things a lot easier when it comes to achieving our aim of being a 100% sustainable brand.
how we source them
We partner with fabric suppliers who share our mission of sustainability and transparency.
To keep our supply chain as sustainable as possible we source materials exclusively from the UK and Europe and make sure there is no unfair or unsafe labor that goes into making the fabrics we use.
We believe sustainability is not just about the fabrics used but also about the workers involved in making them.
TYPES OF FABRICS WE USE
We use only sustainable or deadstock materials.
We are committed to ZERO waste production and eliminate fabric wastage.
We use our cut-off fabrics to make other garments such as accessories and scarfs, so every inch of fabric is used and not wasted.
Each piece comes beautifully gift-wrapped in recyclable tissue paper in our signature branded cardboard box or compostable bag, which makes it the perfect eco-friendly gift! We've kept our labelling simple and effortless.
