Sustainable Savile Row

Savile Row’s drive towards an even more environmentally sustainable modus operandi continues apace. Savile Row Bespoke Association (SRBA) members Dege & Skinner, Gieves & Hawkes, Henry Poole & Co, Huntsman, Richard Anderson and associate member Kathryn Sargent (pictured, top) are all now participating in the Eco-Luxe project by donating their wool off-cuts for recycling.

An initiative of former SRBA Director Su Thomas - who has received invaluable support from Anderson & Sheppard - Eco-Luxe processes the excess cloth it collects in Yorkshire, and the first length of cloth was woven by the Woven in the Bone micro-mill in Scotland. To date, 100 metres of luxury grey herringbone and twill wool cloth has been produced and, in the perfect demonstration of a circular economy, much of it has found its way back to Savile Row.

Savile Row has long championed sustainability, with repurposing, recycling, repairing and minimising waste being central to the craft of bespoke tailoring. The bespoke garment making process is traceable at every stage, from fibre and cloth sourcing to hand finishing, which makes a Savile Row suit the definition of a sustainable garment.
