Sustainability - Materials

at Katharine Hamnett

We are committed to only using raw materials from sustainable sources: organic, regenerated or recycled.

We are transparent about all fabrics, trims and processes that we use to make our products, explaining how we verify their sustainability credentials and the reasons we choose the materials we do.
