As a child I loved creating things, and did a lot of doodling. I made clothes for my Dolls from remnant fabric on my Mothers Old Singer Sewing machine and later I started to make outfits to wear at school. This love of fashion and design has always stayed with me and has become an integral part of building this consciously focused fashion brand.
I create my own designs for Terre Amoure using material that is painstakingly sourced from mainly local suppliers and artisans.
Having a more sustainable brand that is equitable, transparent and reliable at its core is very important to me. I aim to run my business in a responsible way and therefore continuously strive towards working with suppliers of low impact material and stakeholders who uphold the same standards I endeavour to adhere to. I do this by visiting or communicating with them on a regular basis to assess whether we are working in alignment with each other.
I only source from suppliers where workers are treated ethically and fairly and the material I use for your garments are made from sumptuous, natural materials and fibres such as linen, hemp, peace silk and certified cotton as not only do they look more luxurious, they are healthier and feel wonderful against the skin. Natural fabrics are breathable and body temperature regulating which adds to the comfort of wearing a Terre Amoure piece.
Dead Stock Fabric
The end–of–the–line materials I use are usually sourced from fashion designers’ surplus stock… consequently, the pieces made are limited in number so when they are sold they are gone for good… therefore they are one of a kind and there is little danger of seeing someone else in the same outfit.
Produced in London
Terre Amoure pieces are produced locally which reduces the carbon footprint of transportation and will appeal to those who prefer quality pieces made in Britain.
Only a small number of pieces for each season are made to prevent unnecessary excess and waste. So there are a limited number of items available. This makes each item rare and special as it is unlikely that you will see another item like a Terre Amoure piece anywhere else.
Terre Amoure is committed to reducing waste. Items are delivered in handmade re-usable bags I make up from beautiful remnant fabric to decrease the use of plastic and paper therefore there will be no need to deal with excess paper or plastic when you receive your item.
Quality fashion should not exclusively belong to the select few: it should be available and affordable to everyone. We inhabit the earth and have a responsibility, if we love it, to look after it.
