We are committed to running Art & Joy as ethically and sustainably as possible. Here are just some of the ways we are doing this:
We produce our clothes in small runs as per demand to minimise excess stock (so please bear with us if the item you like is out of stock...sign up and we’ll let you know when we have more available!)
Handmade in Bristol, using organic fabrics, sourced from as close to home as possible!
No waste - we save every bit of waste fabric and have lots of exciting projects in the pipeline for our fabric scraps.
No plastic - we've tried our best to eliminate the use of plastic - from coconut shell buttons to packaging made out of recycled card/paper and even our spare buttons come on string rather than little plastic bags!
10% of all our sales go to charity.
We are currently supporting mothers2mothers - working to empower HIV positive mothers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
