Ford & Guy
Ethical clothing, handmade in the UK
We make clothing and accessories that are ethical and playful. We use sustainable fabrics such as certified organic cotton, linen and hemp. Each item is made to-order in our studio in Nottingham, UK and 100% of our scraps are recycled within the UK.
We host a variety of workshops, lessons and events such as life drawing, dressmaking, pottery and jewellery making.
The Mindful Maker Collective aims to bring together a selection of these items and the amazing people behind them. We host 30 of these amazing makers in our store (96 Chilwell Road, NG9 1ES), alongside our products.
“Our main aim is to increase access to, and choice in, responsible products that last. This is not to increase overall product consumption, but to change the way that we think about the fashion industry.
As consumers, our money directs how the fashion industry functions. Consequently, we have power to make it more ethical for the people that work in it. Not only this, but we have an opportunity to reduce our impact on the environment. We can do this by choosing sustainable and biodegradable clothing whilst wearing items for longer. Another aim of our business is to set an example that this is a viable business model.”
