In a nutshell, we design and sell nice clothes, made nicely, by nice people, from nice materials. No sweatshops, no nasty chemicals, no harmful practices.

We’ve got nothing to hide. On the contrary, we think it’s empowering to know where your clothes came from. So, you can read about the entire journey of your new piece here.

We spent aaaaages researching the very best people to work
with at each stage of our supply chain. To make the cut, they simply had to share our values. We wanted top quality and good value, but not at the expense of Mama Earth or any of her (human or non-human) children.

Here’s the executive summary:

- We are proud members of the slow fashion movement.

- All designs are created from scratch by our Founder, Sophie.

- Designs are printed (or embroidered) onto garments that are ethically made from sustainably sourced materials, by a company with a strong social responsibility policy.

- All fabrics used to construct our garments are 100% organic and/or recycled.

- Printing and embroidery are done in the UK by a small, but expert, family business.

- Garments are printed (or embroidered) to order, which means we don't overproduce products that could end up in landfill.

- Inks used are vegan, eco-friendly (water-based and biodegradable), and do not contain any harmful chemicals.

- Products are sent directly to you from our printer, which minimises carbon footprint, in minimal, plastic-free packaging.

- We don’t send any extra faff with your order (leaflets, vouchers, adverts, etc.).


If you’re new to the slow fashion movement, welcome to the party. Pull up a chair. (Yes, it’s that kind of party). You can read about fast fashion here.



We are proud members of the slow fashion movement.

Here's how:

- We are not trendy, and we’re ok with that. We aim to make timeless designs that you can love forever.

- We print to order. This means that we will never have warehouses full of stock that we can’t sell and that end up in landfill.

- The minimal waste produced is recycled and/or reused by our suppliers and printers (you can read more on this below).

- Our prices reflect the hard work that goes into our products at all levels of the supply chain, and the high quality, environmentally-friendly materials used. We would love you to buy one or two pieces now and again, that you really love and that last for a long time.

- You won’t catch us dropping and swapping products every five minutes.



First and foremost, you can feel great in the knowledge that your new piece comes from a good place.

Second, and importantly, it does mean that you will have to wait a little while for your purchases to arrive . This is mainly because your piece is printed or embroidered to order and sent to you by a small (but expert) UK-based printer. Our printers have turnaround times between 1 and 7 working days. We aim to get your order to you within 10 working days.

So, we are not a see today, wear tomorrow kinda brand. And we’re ok with that. We hope you are too. Your D&GD purchase involves a bit of a wait, but we like to think we’re worth it.

Inkthreadable are a small but mighty, UK-based, family-run printing and embroidery company. Inkthreadable:

- Pay all employees above the national living wage regardless of position.

- Use Kornit Direct to Garment printers, which use vegan, eco-friendly inks.

- Use OEKO-TEX® approved inks, meaning they do not include any regulated or unregulated chemicals that are harmful to the environment.

- Are phasing in embroidery threads made from 100% recycled post-consumer PET bottles. This decreases the amount of plastic in the environment and reduces the demand for virgin polyester.

- Use plastic-free packaging (with the exception of biodegradable bubble-wrap, which is used to protect breakables only).

- Recycle all textile waste in products such as carpet underlay, rather than sending it to landfill.

- Work to offset their carbon footprint by planting trees in the North of England with Ecologi.
