A CONSCIOUS COMMITMENT

With incremental changes for right now, and larger goals for the future, our sustainability efforts are always growing. We recognise we have a responsibility towards our planet, and the people involved in making our clothes, so we’ve developed a new uniform using recycled yarns, responsible wools, vegetable-tanned leathers and innovative water saving techniques.

" At AllSaints we see it as our responsibility to not only help our customers look good, but also feel good, in the knowledge that we have carefully considered the materials used as well as the processes involved in creating our collections for them. Understanding what something will be made of and how it will be made are prerequisites for us before any design goes into production. " Peter Wood, CEO

What We’ve Achieved So Far

Vegetable Tanned Leather

For some of our jackets, the leather-making process is carried out using vegetable tanning. Dyes are made from natural compounds such as nuts, fruits, tree bark, and leaves.


Chrome-Free Tanning

Found across many of our leather products. Chrome-free tanning is done without using Chromium III, meaning the leather has better biodegradable properties.


Recycled Polyester

Many of our dresses are made from Polysheer, a fabric developed by recycling leftover plastic bottles.


Plant-Based Shirts

Derived from certified renewable wood sources and using an eco-responsible production process, EcoVero™ fibres lower emissions and promote supply chain transparency.


Natural Indigo Dye

Organic natural indigo dye is extracted from the leaves of the Indigofera tinctoria plant. The process of extracting this and dyeing the fabric uses much less water than standard dyes, as well as considerably reducing the use of synthetic chemicals.


Plant-Based Dyes

Organic natural dyes use agricultural waste or non-edible natural compounds like leaves and nut shells. This process uses much less water and synthetic chemicals than regular dyes and supports the local economy of harvesting these materials.


ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon

ECONYL® yarn is a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescued from all over the world.
