House of Foxy

The House of Foxy consider themselves to be the very opposite of fast fashion, believing their products to be investment pieces to be kept and worn many times. The company endeavours to become as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible through the following stated commitments:

  • Working hard to increase recycling throughout the business
  • Ensuring that all bags, packaging, garment tags and e-commerce bags are made from recyclable materials, biodegradable or sourced from certified sustainable sources
  • Recycling our textile waste and working with partners to deal with any samples, off cuts and fabric ends accumulated to help ensure none of our garments or used textiles end up in landfill.
  • Using recycling points in all our studios, warehousing and offices for everything. -
  • Working hard to eliminate single use plastics
  • Making sure that we are all mindful of our 'footprint' from considering how much we print to how much we need to travel

House of Foxy are a British company based in Yorkshire and they make some of their garments onsite though larger volume production is manufactured in Poland.
