Green

Environmentally FriendlyBraintree have always used sustainable fibres such as bamboo, hemp, recycled fabric, and organic cotton throughout their entire men’s and women’s clothing range. They are true innovators in the field of sustainable fabrics, and offer a very comprehensive range of wardrobe staples using entirely natural and organic fabrics that have a lower impact on the environment than the synthetic fabrics used by much of the fashion industry. They design their fabrics and clothing to be durable and long-lasting, in the hopes that they will contribute to a culture that rejects throwaway trends and fast-fashion.

Each piece of Braintree clothing is made in the same country, meaning that it doesn’t need to be shipped from place to place, and they transport all of their finished clothing from the country where it was produced to the country of sale in a slow and environmentally thoughtful way, never by air.
