Sustainability | Kate Ford

Our overarching philosophy at KATE FORD is to create bravely and tread lightly. 

To us at KATE FORD, ‘sustainability’ is much more than a green label. It’s an attitude, a practice, and a commitment to keep learning and improving everything we do for people, place and planet.

The fashion industry accounts for a staggering percentage of the world’s landfill, and we’re passionate about combating that by minimising waste at every touch point of our process. 

From conception, all KATE FORD womenswear has been made with natural fabrics sourced sustainably from the earth, such as cotton, silk, ramie, merino wool and linen, any synthetic fibres we are using are all from recycled items and and our swimwear is derived from Italian recycled lycra ensuring that we are reducing our impact on the environment as much as we can.

Kate has personally visited every fair trade factory we work with at KATE FORD. Meeting the makers and seeing first hand how the whole manufacturing process operates from end-to-end on the ground is incredibly important to her and the ethical credentials of the brand. 

KATE FORD and Kate herself are big believers in hand-made items and providing work to those who are less fortunate than others. This is why Kate works directly with artisans who are extremely talented in many fields and KATE FORD is dedicated to sharing their wonderful work with the world, most especially with you, the consumer.
