My goal is to show that sustainable fashion doesn’t have to look a certain way - it can be playful, bold and totally exciting. Good design lasts forever, it never goes out of style and evolves with you. My dream is that customers will still be wearing and loving their KATRINA & RE purchases in years to come, passing onto friends and family when they’ve finished with them!

Conscious growth

KATRINA & RE is not 100% perfectly sustainable. This is a journey and there’s a lot to learn and a long way to go. I am committed to keeping ethics and sustainability at the forefront of the brand as it grows and evolves. I’m always open to feedback and learning so please get in touch if you have any comments, advice or questions!

K & RE ethos

Design: creating high quality products that stand the test of time and have a long life cycle. Working to a slow fashion model by producing small limited collections or working on a made to order basis. This reduces excess waste of unsold garments and encourages slow and mindful consumption.

Fabrics: using only natural fibres or sustainable solutions, e.g. deadstock fabric. All prints are digitally printed in the UK using water based inks onto an eco-friendly fabric. You can read about why digital printing is more environmentally friendly than traditional printing methods here.

Upcycling is a major part of the brand and each collection is built around sourcing special second hand materials to create new from old. Fabric scraps leftover from the making process are used for accessories and patchwork projects!

Packaging: fully recyclable and plastic free packaging. All products sold are wrapped in recycled tissue paper, with a biodegradable K & RE sticker and shipped to you in a recyclable mailing bag made from sugar cane.

Manufacturing: working with skilled local manufacturers who are paid a fair wage and always treated with respect.

Charity: connecting with and supporting charity initiatives is really important to me and a key part of the K & RE ethos. Every year I will donate a portion of sales to a local London charity, focussing on groups that tackle climate change, animal cruelty and supporting women.
