Sustainable pop-ups? We're in! Join us at the Allbright this Thursday 26th from 10 -8.

Sustainable Pop-Up Anyone?

With  just about every fashion magazine or blog talking up the benefits of sustainability, Cucumber is proud that from our very first, hand scribbled business plan we set out to be a fully ethical business that supported like-minded charities and projects.  We know perfection may well be impossible, but we are striving hard to be as sustainable as possible (see box below for more details). This month we have teamed up with the gorgeous Allbright Club(the pic above is their groovy bar in their Rathbone location where the pop up will be held) and a select group of sustainable brands to host a pop up on Thursday 26th September during the 'Allgreen Week'. Normally a members' only club, email us for an invitation now! More details below.

Joining us will be 

 

Catch Rhys

 A sustainable jewellery brand with a focus on everyday fine jewellery without the traditional markups. Simple jewellery, hand made in the UK from recycled Gold and Silver, designed to be worn 24/7. 

 

Loskey 

 A sustainable, fairtrade and women-focused capsule clothing brand founded by Lori Cunningham after a life-long search for the perfect, durable and sustainable t-shirt.

 

Cleverstein

 The world's first sustainable modular footwear which transforms to match various attires in your wardrobe: formal, casual and evening. It is the impact brand, which aims to achieve 4Rs: Reduce, Regenerate, Repair, Recycle. Comfortable and blister-free, they are a perfect travel companion and a must for the sustainable capsule closet. 

 

Azima Musayeva

Azima Musayeva specialises in high-end women's accessories, in particular lace collars and cuffs. Each item is hand-crafted and limited, produced with the best quality lace sourced from Europe. 

They add exquisite detail to an outfit, peeping through a sleeve or refashioning a simple neckline.

 

Cucumber and Sustainability

You know that Cucumber cools you down when you are hot, but did you know that...

 

sustainability and slow fashion are at the heart of what Cucumber does. All of Cucumber’s fabrics last up to six times longer than cotton, meaning longer wear and less waste. Their anti-crease technology means that they require little or no ironing, and they are hang-dry, helping to reduce energy consumption. Cucumber is part of the sustainable washing revolution, requiring minimal washing, meaning minimal energy consumption and water waste.

 

Cucumber produces small runs, with a view to limiting fabric waste and avoiding ending up with dead stock fabric. All pieces are graded, sampled and manufactured locally in London: this means low transport emissions and easy access to ensure that factory standards are upheld. All labels and trims are sourced within the UK, which not only helps the local economy but again ensures that fewer air miles are used in creating the product. From June, this small company eliminated all plastics that are not 100% biodegradable from its supply chain, and soon it will be using only recycled and recyclable tissue paper, postal sacks and labels when sending out its orders. 

 

We know we are not perfect, but we are trying harder every step of the way to be a company that we can be proud of, and you can be too.

Becoming. If you (like us) are one of the few women on the planet who have managed to swerve Michelle Obama's book - don't!  A simply written, incredibly evocative, astonishing and ultimately hopeful book, we can't recommend it highly enough. (And when you have a moment, dial into the former FLOTUS' banging out tunes with James Corden in a brilliant Car Pool Karaoke.)
