BEATRICE BAYLISS: SLOW FASHION, HELPING YOU HELP THE PLANET
Beatrice Bayliss is based online, with being situated predominantly online we use less energy than traditional retail. We participate and love to show our products physically as well and have undertook popups with Lone Design Club in London for this.
Beatrice Bayliss is all about minimising the environmental impact throughout our supply chain. We enhance suppliers who share a common ethos of sustainability, transparency and affordability.
We opt for suppliers who maintain the same core values as we do here at BB. Sustainable, transparent and affordable, ensuring that we are as sustainable as possible, our current suppliers include Good fabrics in the UK and Lebenskleidung based in Germany as these companies align with our core values.
We aim to keep all of our manufacturing local and are proud to say that 100% of all of our products are produced in the UK. The majority of our products are made in the UK by either myself the founder or local seamstresses.
Within our production process we aim for zero waste so the off cuts from each collection are used to create the majority of our accessories ranging from face masks to tote bags.
All of our packaging is lovingly packed and recyclable, from the tissue paper we wrap the clothes in to the envelopes and boxes we send your goods out to you in.
The environment is incredibly important to us at Beatrice Bayliss, considered in the designing, fabric selection and production of each collection. We have partnered with Ecologi to enhance the positive impact. For every order you place Ecologi will plant a tree reducing our carbon footprint as a community and giving something back to the environment.

Explore our fabrics:
TENCEL™ is one of our favourite fabrics. Made by Lenzing an Austrian company, TENCEL™ Lyocell is a regenerated cellulose fiber with properties nearly identical to cotton. It’s part of the Rayon family, made from renewable wood materials.
TENCEL™ comes from Eucalyptus trees, it takes half an acre to grow enough trees for one tonne of TENCEL™ fiber which isn't very much. TENCEL™ production is done without the use of pesticides or insecticides, which is great for the planet.
TENCEL™ has a closed loop production process, this is great as the majority of the non-toxic solvent is recycled in the system which means they aren't flushed out as water waste.

Cupro is a regenerated cellulose fabric made from cotton waste. It's in the same family of fabrics as Tencel and Lycocell, which are all made from plant based materials.
It's made from cotton linter, a waste product of cotton and is produced in a closed loop like Tencel, meaning chemicals can be extracted and the water can be reused.
It's also made from 100% plant-based materials meaning it's biodegradable!
Organic cotton is produced and certified according to the guidelines and standards of organic farming. The cultivation of organic cotton preserves the soils, nature and humans.
Instead of artificial fertilisers and pesticides only sustainable and natural methods are used, which both us and the planet love.
Growing organic cotton combines tradition and innovation enhance the environment and our quality of life.
Our organic fabrics are all sourced from Lebenskleidung.
