FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

BRAND ETHICS

Are your clothes Eco friendly?

We take our time to produce collections that incorporate organic fabrics, non-toxic dyes and produce minimal waste.

Materials

Our printed textiles are created on OEKO - TEX certificate fabrics and fixed at a high temperature with no chemicals. No water is used for this and minimum waste is generated throughout the process.

T-shirts are made from organic cotton in our attempt to patronise farming that doesn't use pesticides.

The use of polyester fabric in SIYEN collections has decreased since 2016. Polyester has many technical benefits, however, we understand it is not the best for the environment and have reduced usage significantly.

Who makes SIYEN clothes?

Garments are made in the UK by experienced manufacturers and machinists. We do not have collections fully factored in sweatshops thousands of miles away as we like to ensure good working conditions, fair pay and quality products.

For any items we need to outsource, we ensure they are made ethically.

Can packaging be recycled?

Yes. Currently 75% of packaging can be recycled with the exception of the clear plastic film used on garment boxes. 

 

We haven't mastered it all, but we are definitely making improvements to areas of our supply chain and manufacturing to make sure we do better. Overall, our rationale is that if we make quality items and you take care of them; wash, wear and repeat until they reach the end of their days; together we will reduce waste.
