Mon amour des vêtements éthiques

came about during my time at Design and Visual Communication School. Once I had graduated, I felt motivated to launch a clothing line that was different from the high street labels I once loved. Instead, I wanted to manufacture high-quality clothing that could work in harmony with the environment, rather than against it. And I’m not alone. We have all seen in recent years the devastating impact fast-fashion is having on the world. The emissions generated from new clothing bought in the UK each month is the same as flying around the world on a jumbo jet 900 times. That’s just insane. We live in a throw-away world, where we buy an outfit for an event and donate it to the charity shop the next day, thinking we’re doing something good. Actually, we’re encouraging more mass-produced garments that are polluting our skies, rivers, oceans, wildlife, and air.

Je sais que, par moi-même, je ne peux pas changer ça.

It’s amazing to see grassroots groups beginning to fight back against the companies who aren’t mindful of the environment, and the progress we are making towards more sustainable fashion. And with Ultra Tee, I get to play my part. After hundreds of hours of research, preparation, and one or two obstacles on my way, the Ultra Tee brand was born. Since 2012, I’ve been designing beautiful clothing that does good for the planet and doesn’t compromise on style, and today the brand is stronger than ever. When I’m not packaging orders or speaking with customers, I’m taking inspiration from my surroundings in Paris and London, spending time in nature and challenging myself to live in an eco-friendly and low-carbon manner. Whether I’m sipping a drink and watching the world go by in a Parisian coffee shop, or getting lost in one of my guilty pleasures at my favourite vintage book shop, I’m always dreaming up new concepts and ideas. My mind doesn’t rest!

Une introduction à ma marque

Ultra Tee was inspired by the Latin “Ultra” which means beyond, and “Tee” which reflects our core offering. That’s baked into my philosophy. I don’t sell just tees, I only sell ultra tees! When I launched the brand, my mission was and stays simple: to create attractive, premium products that fuse thoughtful design details with soft fabrics that are comfortable and breathable. I knew from the start I wanted to create more than just t-shirts with eco-friendly messages. I sought out a method of digital printing that uses only water-based inks, which are less harsh on the planet and highly resistant to many washings. These inks are tested by Confidence In Textile, are better for your skin and sit deeper within the fabric, allowing designs to “pop”.

Lorsque vous achetez un Ultra Tee, vous faites un investissement pour long terme

plutôt que quelque chose pour une seule saison. Je comprends que nous devons faire plus pour protéger notre planète et que même si chaque marque adoptait des pratiques respectueuses de l'environnement, acheter de nouveaux vêtements nuirait encore à l'environnement. C'est pourquoi, pour chaque t-shirt que nous vendons, nous plantons un arbre. Ces arbres ne changeront pas le monde du jour au lendemain, mais avec le temps, ils aideront à reconstruire nos forêts et à oxygéner notre air afin que les générations futures puissent en profiter.

Mais avant tout, je veux être honnête.

Quand j'avais décidé de créer ma marque de vêtements, je n'avais pas besoin de regarder une vidéo pour me dire que les colorants chimiques pouvaient nuire à notre santé et à la planète, je le savais déjà. Je prends chaque personne, chaque fil et chaque ressource en considération lorsque je crée, et c'est quelque chose dont je suis fier. Le but ultime d'Ultra Tee est de nuire le moins possible à la planète et de fabriquer des vêtements honnêtement. Bon, je crois que j'ai trop parlé de moi - maintenant c'est à vous! Si vous êtes à la recherche d'un nouveau t-shirt, jetez un coup d'œil sur ma collection. Ou, si vous avez simplement envie de discuter ou avez une question sur la mode éthique, contactez-moi sur les réseaux sociaux. J'espère avoir de vos nouvelles bientôt!
