WHO WE ARE
At Sisterhood we create timeless pieces to be added to your wardrobe and worn forever.
Every style is designed to be effortless and make you feel beautiful. Whether you wear it whilst exploring a new town, out with friends, or just because; we hope you treasure each piece as much as the memories you make wearing it.
SUSTAINABILITY & ETHICS
We respect and love Mother Earth and as a brand we take responsibility to reduce the impact we have on the environment as much as we can. Everything used to run our company, from paper to packaging is made from recycled materials and can either biodegrade or be recycled once finished with. This will never be compromised on.
We are also proud to use a high percentage of low impactful fabrics and fibres for our ranges. Something we have learnt on our journey of sustainability is that it’s not possible to be 100% friendly to the environment as a fashion brand, but what we can do is continually progress the way we create, promise to constantly make improvements and ensure sure our pieces have longevity in not just design but also quality. We currently work with a mix of recycled, organic, natural, low impactful and some dead stock fabrics and are always looking for new sustainable options we can implement into our ranges. You can read more about our fabrics and their impact here. Sometimes we use a very small percentage of Nylon or Polyester (recycled where we can) in our knitwear. We found that sometimes completely natural fibres weren’t always holding up in quality after wear and washing, so these fibres can add that longevity so that the pieces can really stand the test of time. If something completely natural isn’t going to look good and last after a handful of washes, we don’t see this as sustainability. We feel true sustainability comes with a balance; making sure that long lasting quality is also prioritised along side natural fibres. We highly recommend everyone on a journey to being more sustainable to invest in one of our Guppy Friend Wash Bags, it helps to stop microfibres from your clothes going to the ocean when you wash them.

Creating ethically is also something very important to us, since we established in 2015 we’ve worked with the same small factory in China with whom we have a very close and loyal relationship; we know our team well and they produce our designs helping to ensure that there is minimal to no wastage. We have also added a knitwear and swimwear factory which we have built great relationships with to create varied products to our ranges making sure to put sustainability first. All of our factory workers receive fair and above average wages and we have an on site agent who makes sure working conditions are safe and our workers are happy on a weekly basis. We also make visits ourselves when we can.
It’s truly important to us that the clothes we sell don't have an ugly past.
We donate every month to sustainability projects around the world to help give back to the planet. By calculating our carbon usage, we then help to fund earth positive projects so we can become carbon neutral as a brand. You can click here to see some of the projects that we donate to. We also plant one tree for every order placed with TreeSisters.org.
