Introducing the New Doc Cotton Marketplace

About Doc Cotton

Doc Cotton‘s journey launched in 2018 as a sustainable fashion brand. Based in Peckham, we recently launched our Marketplace for customers to order pre-designed creations by designers.

The marketplace allows designers to launch their own store in minutes as Doc Cotton provide the framework for designers to apply their own prints to a range of pre-designed garments. The entire production process is managed by Doc Cotton, including the sourcing of fabric, digital printing and construction of the items to ensure the strictest sustainable and ethical practices are applied. All garments are handmade from 100% organic cotton in Peckham by seamstresses being paid in excess of the London Living Wage.

James Pickard, founder of Doc Cotton says “The fashion industry needs to evolve to a sustainable and ethical model. By providing a platform that allows any individual or business to easily design a sustainable clothing range, we aim to lead the backlash against fast fashion”.

Doc Cotton also allows customers to create bespoke printed garments using 100% organic cotton, in a bid to tackle fast fashion and all of which is handmade in Peckham. Easily customisable and made to order, customers essentially build their own wardrobe. The product range is extensive, offering kidswear, unisexwear, menswear and womenswear. Individuality, customisation and sustainability strongly remains at the forefront of our ethos and process when it comes to sustainable fashion. The manufacturing of our products and organic cotton in the UK is a strong focus for Doc Cotton, so we can overlook our method and ensure our production process is as sustainable as possible.

StyleGrimoires, fashion influencer marks the importance of sustainable brands like Doc Cotton who “offer stylish, custom pieces at affordable prices which is exactly what’s needed in opposition to fast fashion. If we want to preserve the planet and safeguard the human rights of millions of garment workers, it’s important we change the way we consume fashion”.

Doc Cotton’s pop up store is currently at London Bridge’s hottest site, Vinegar Yard, overlooked by the iconic Shard.


100% Organic Cotton

Our cotton begins as a seed cultivated via sustainable practices in family farms in Greece. It is carefully and separately ginned at the same area where it is grown.

Transforming Cotton

The cotton bales leave the ginning mill to reach the spinning mill, a few kilometres away. This long staple cotton is then spun under environmentally-friendly methods, featuring higher tenacity, lower neps and great overall uniformity.

Woven & Knitted Items

For woven items made from Poplin or Drill including shirts and skirts, it is transported to a Belgium fabric weaver. They weave this from yarn into a fabric. For knitted items made from jersey including t-shirts, it is transported to Leicester where it is knitted into fabric.

Handmade in Peckham

This fabric is then coated and sent to us here at Peckham, ready for use. We are proud to create all Doc Cotton garments in Peckham Levels, which is powered by renewable energy.

Skilled Production

After receiving a garment order from you, we digitally print the fabric according to the usage we need to create your garment. This is then treated, cut and sewn by our talented production team.

Your Doc Cotton Garment

Finally, we post your finished Doc Cotton item to you. From a planted seed to a garment delivered in zero waste packaging, your item is ready to wear and built to last.
