The world is at a tipping point ecologically, so we're doing what we can to make good quality, ethically sound, sustainable fashion accessible to all. Falling Leaf Clothing uses Fair Wear certified, Peta approved vegan organic cotton and recycled polyester clothing printed in solvent-free, water-based inks, using electricity from 100% renewable sources and 100% carbon neutral gas. Our recycled PET baseball caps save the equivalent of 1.5 post-consumer bottles from going to landfill, and both these and our organic cotton beanies are embroidered using the world's first ever vegan, plastic-free embroidery service.
All of our products are dispatched in compostable mailing bags and we keep our use of paper and other resources to an absolute minimum.
The designs aim to showcase the beauty of Scotland, using photos taken on our motorbike travels, and include the Falling Leaf motto of “all good things are wild and free” to create unique, aspirational, Scottish-travel-themed, unisex clothing to try to make sustainable fashion more contemporary and appealing, and therefore a viable alternative to wasteful, damaging fast fashion.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
For us at least, autumn (or 'fall' for our cousins in the US) is by far the best season - maybe because, as Scots, we don't have high expectations of the weather during that time of the year, so we're less disappointed. We look out our cosy clothing, layer it up, and take walks amongst the fiery colours of the turning leaves. Then we snuggle down by the crackling fire with something warm and spiced, and maybe a good book. The falling leaf is, for us, the emblem of this magical time.
If you're tired of paying too much for sustainable clothing and are looking for something a bit different, have a browse through our collection - we'd love to know what you think!
