Our Sustainability Promise

We're consistently working to bring Sanctuary to the forefront of the eco-movement and to be an ever-more socially and environmentally conscious brand.


We are committed to creating collections and styles that have less of an impact on the environment now and in the future.

We use recycled and low-impact fibers that use less water, fewer chemicals and less energy. More than half of our products each season are made from sustainable materials and fabrics. We use sustainably sourced cotton, and we take care to see that it’s treated in low-waste factories, with minimal impact to the environment.

Sanctuary partners with Better Cotton to improve cotton farming globally.

Better Cotton is sourced via a chain of custody model called mass balance. This means that Better Cotton is not physically traceable to end products, however, Better Cotton Farmers benefit from the demand for Better Cotton in equivalent volumes to those we 'source.'

Sanctuary is committed to sourcing 50% of our cotton as Better Cotton, recycled cotton, organic cotton, Fairtrade cotton etc.
