Materials We Use

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton is grown without the use of fertilizers, pesticides or any other toxic chemicals. The eco-conscious methods used in organic farming, support a sustainable environment, helping to maintain soil fertility resulting in 100% natural cotton, with no hidden nasties.

 

Viscose

The majority of our woven styles are made from viscose, a man-made fibre made from sustainable wood and bamboo pulp. Viscose is known as a 'semi-synthetic fibre' to reflect the combination of the natural raw materials and the chemical manufacturing process that turns the pulp into usable fibres.

 

Recycled Packaging

From May 2018, All our online orders will be sent out in 100% plastic free, recycled paper packaging.

Real Living Wage

We are extremely proud to be a Living Wage Employer. This means that every Sugarhill employee is paid the real living wage or over.

This rate is set by the Living Wage Foundation and is not the same as the Government National Living Wage. The governments 'national living wage' is not calculated according to what employees and their families need to live and so the Real Living Wage is significantly higher. The rate is currently set at £10.20 per hour in London and £8.75 per hour outside of London.
