SUSTAINABILITY IN A NUTSHELL
At the heart of our ethos at Eponine is a commitment to reducing our environmental footprint. We pride ourselves on being a naturally sustainable label; making conscious choices whilst ever looking for further ways in which to improve.
Our dedication to sustainability is reflected in our sourcing practices. We work exclusively with couture fabric suppliers who sell in small-batch quantities to ensure that we order the exact amount needed, reducing excess waste.
Many an Eponine design is cut from deadstock and vintage textiles to craft unique pieces that not only tell a story, but also contribute to a greener future.
We believe in quality over quantity at Eponine as another means of minimising waste, by adopting a mindful approach to garment production. We create just one sample per design per collection to ensure there will be no excess inventory or unnecessary use of energy.
The aesthetic of Eponine designs is inspired by fashion eras gone by. As such, our collections sit outside the ever-changing world of trends. An Eponine piece is a “forever purchase”, in both aesthetic and quality; something to be worn on repeat and handed down generations.
