Sustainability – Doc Cotton

Sustainable Fashion

Sustainability is at the heart of the Doc Cotton philosophy


We take sustainability very seriously here at Doc Cotton and are determined to minimise our impact on the environment and society.

Our pledge to you is transparency, sustainable-sourcing and innovation, whilst always delivering a quality product.

Our Solution

At Doc Cotton, we want to minimise our impact on the environment, empower our employees and produce high quality, personalised garments built to last. 

100% Cotton

We only use 100% cotton sourced from sustainable and organic suppliers.

Digital Printing

We produce all our garments through digital printing which lowers water use by 60%, energy consumption by 55% and CO2 emissions by 95%.

Preventing Pollution

Digital printing also prevents the industrial water pollution caused by fabric dyeing and treatment in emerging markets.

Low Carbon Footprint

All our garments are manufactured at our studio in Peckham, minimising transport costs and reducing our carbon footprint.

Skilled Seamstresses

We pay all our skilled seamstresses a rate in excess of the London Living Wage.

Zero Waste

Because each garment is made especially for their owner, no garments are wasted or disposed of.

Dare to see some scary facts about Fast Fashion....

Clothes made from polyester can take 200 years to decompose

compared to 15 years ago
95% of clothes sold in the UK are manufactured abroad
17-20% of all industrial water pollution resulted from textile dyeing and finishing
There are 8,000 chemicals used in textile production processes
85% of unwanted clothes end up in landfills rather than being recycled

We firmly believe that the best fashion is personalised, unique and sustainable; our pledge is to strive for progress in fighting back against Fast Fashion and protecting the planet.
