SLOW FASHION. SUSTAINABLE STYLE
Goodbye fast fashion, hello sustainable style! We’ve partnered with facilities across the globe to use the very best in sustainable technologies, processes and materials to bring you incredible sustainable styles that won’t break the planet or cost the earth.
If the fashion industry were a country, its emissions would rank as highly as France, Germany and the UK combined! Most manufacturing methods use vast amounts of water, chemicals, energy and other resources. By using high quantities of certified recycled materials, TALA’s footprint is significantly lower than if we used virgin materials, with the added benefit of working to keep fabric away from landfill. And of course, all our packaging is recyclable, with all our garment packaging made from 100% recycled plastic!
We care about how our products are made and we know who makes them. Before we work with any new suppliers and their factories, we carefully check all of the accreditations they hold.
We’ll only work with suppliers whose practices align with our values, and we ensure this through the use of regular external audits and by maintaining a conversation to constantly improve conditions. Exploitation thrives in hidden places, so we’ve made sure to shine a light on our entire supply chain and work with our factories to help them be the best they can be. This includes setting parameters for overtime, fair wages, anti-discrimination policies and other standards in line with international regulations. TALA is aware that there are cultural and legislative differences between countries, but no matter where our suppliers are, we want to work together to ensure that certain standards are being upheld.
We aim to build long-term partnerships with our suppliers, and carry out our business in a transparent, fair and sustainable manner. We’d like to bring a positive change to the industry we operate in and continuously improve the standards of the factories we work with. It’s very important to us and we know you feel the same!

JUST ADD WATER
Did you know that all of our tags are plantable?
Each tag is filled with seasonal seeds, meaning you’ll get a different plant with each tag you grow, and is bound with hemp twine making it fully biodegradable. Just pop your tag in some soil, add water and watch it grow! Whether it's a herb, flower or spice, it’s bound to brighten up your day.
Oh, and all our garment packaging is 100% recycled plastic and recyclable too, so there’s no nasty waste heading to landfill.
HERE TO STAY
We’re on a mission to create 100% recycled and upcycled sustainable styles that are accessible to everyone. We’re also constantly working on exciting new projects, such as how we can recycle your returns into fab new pieces.
Our goal is to create quality pieces that will last as long as possible, keeping clothes out of landfill - according to WRAP, £140 million worth of used clothing goes to landfill each year in the UK. To us, that’s a lot of wasted money, resources and potential!
Of course, no one is perfect, but we won’t stop until we are the best we can be. To learn more about the fabrics that we use, head to our fabrics page.
Thanks for being part of the journey!
