How Pre-Order works.

Welcome to the most joyful way to shop. Clothing designed and lovingly handcrafted to order by our makers. Delivered with care. Worn by you again and again, and again. Making fashion work for us and the planet. 

How it works

Every few weeks we release one new, limited-edition product. It’s available to pre-order and personalise: you choose the colours, details and measurements. Then our skilled workers bring it to life, right here in London. You’re updated every step of the way, so you can follow its story before it lands on your doorstep with a label signed by the maker. Ready for you wear it and love it.

Why do we do it?  

Making to order makes shopping better for everyone. You get a one-of-a-kind  piece that’s all yours. Our skilled makers work in the best conditions – no unrealistic pressure, total control of their craft. And there’s no waste, so we’re doing the best by the planet we can. We make with joy so you can wear with joy. 

What size should I buy? 

Each garment has detailed measurements on the individual product page - click “Size guide” to check. 

What happens if I have ordered an in stock item alongside a pre-ordered item?
All your items will arrive at the same time. We will send them together with the pre-order item to cut down on emissions and packaging.


When you buy goods from a business, in law you have a number of rights as a consumer. These include the right to claim a refund, replacement, repair and/or compensation where the goods are faulty or misdescribed.

Exchanges and refunds will be processed within 5 days of us receiving the items. Once we have processed the exchange or refund, you will receive an email confirmation. Exchanges only apply for a different size of the same item. If the required size is out of stock we will issue a full refund.

Ethics, sustainability and social responsibility

We’re a certified social enterprise. This means that we reinvest at least 50% off all profits to create positive social change in our communities. Since we incorporated in 2014, we’ve had a clear social and environmental mission to create living wage jobs for women facing barriers to work, in the most environmentally just way possible, and this is set out in our governing documents. 

We’re a certified B Corporation, which means we meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. We have an outstanding score over five categories: governance, workers, customers, community, and the environment.⁠ See our certification here.

We are a Living Wage employer, which means that our rates are independently-calculated based on what people need to get by. Our employees earn a real living wage, above the government “living wage”.

You can read more about our social and environmental commitments in our annual Impact Report.
