From Our Family to Yours
Much is being discussed at the moment about climate change and sustainabilty.
We want you to treasure the things you buy from us for a long time .
The inspiration behind the Hettie is to create timeless pieces that will be treasured for a lifetime and passed down from generation to generation. Hettie is actively against fast fashion and campaigning for a cleaner industry that focuses on traditional craft and quality.
Slow Fashion is an awareness and approach to fashion, which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing, particularly focusing on sustainability. It involves buying better-quality garments that will last for longer and values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.
Take a look at our accessories to treasure and help contribute to more sustainable living - caring for the planet for future generations
Here at Hettie we believe it is time to start thinking about the world around us and at everything we do. We are all guilty of having too much "stuff " and wasting too much . We have all seen the photos of enormous amounts of plastic washed up on beaches and the terrible effect on wildlife.Too many trees are being cut down and perfectly good things being thrown away. And the images of the recent fires in Australia were heartbreaking
The philosophy "Buy less , choose well , make it last " is very true.
The wool that we use in many of our products has a lot of environmental benefits and is a wonderfully friendly fabric . You can read more about it here.
Hettie are also members of The Campaign For Wool - Patron HRH The Prince of Wales. Live naturally and choose wool.
The Hettie collections are Made in Britain. Everything is produced in safe working environments by workers who are looked after properly . There are no long journeys across the sea or air to get your products to you either which reduces our carbon footprint .
Hettie is committed to creating products that stand the test of time.
The planet and the country can't withstand the current manufacturing model. By offering a new solution to the current waste coming out of the industry, we at Hettie are doing what we can to ensure the products we create, stand the test of time and become a valued possession to our customer, not just another throwaway purchase.
Let’s all think about the wonderful world in which we live and preserve it for future generations. We need to leave our planet for them as we found it .
