Coupure believes that we need to reset our way of thinking about newness.
Our commitment to sustainability is captured in every decision we make and item we produce. We don’t compromise on that. Ever.
Owning a Coupure piece, is more than just buying a beautiful item –
it means you participating in the circular economy and supporting the future health of our planet. We believe making changes starts at home.
Sourcing and Carbon footprint
Our commitment to sustainability is captured in every decision we make and item we produce. All garments are ethically made in London and are thoughtfully reimagined using reclaimed silk. This means that we only buy verified, post-production cloth; deadstock, overstock, and fabric from the end of rolls (otherwise destined for landfill), from fashion houses and manufacturers. This is why we only make a limited amount of each style but we believe this makes the product even more special.
All of our silk is both saved and lovingly refashioned in London,reducing our carbon footprint from sourcing fabric to the finished product slim to none.
Our brand labels are made from 100% recycled polyester.
Our uncoated swing tags and thank you cards are 100% recycled, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified and made with 100% post consumer waste fibres.
We have a zero single use plastic policy throughout our supply chain.
Once our product is finished, it’s carefully wrapped in 100% recycled tissue paper. As it’s acid-free, this paper is ecologically sound and environmentally friendly. It’s then sealed with a compostable sticker, and inserted into a fully compostable mailing bag. No unnecessary, wasteful packaging is ever used — with the intention being that every layer of our company pushes for responsibility.
We make pieces to last, and we need your help looking after them to minimise the impact on the environment. Please see our Garment care instructions.
Coupure pieces are made by a group of Badass female machinists in London, all friends with Charlotte Macke, all working for above the London minimum living wage.
