Tell us about Beaumont Organic and how sustainability is incorporated into your business.
Owner Hannah following her degree in fashion and textile marketing , worked as a buyer for monsoon before leaving to start Beaumont Organic in 2008 which began with a range of 8 un-dyed 100% organic cotton t-shirts with the ultimate aim of producing conscious contemporary luxury products for the fashion conscious individual.
How did Beaumont Organic begin?
Inspired by the idea of producing clothing that people are proud to wear and a brand they are proud to be associated with, as well as, creating clothing that is made to last and where people will feel inspired to take care of. We do this through asking questions - how can we reduce waste, how can we reduce consumption, and how can we use this new material or that off cut. Despite the fact we sell to countries outside the UK we keep visits abroad to a minimum in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint. Similarly, the Hannah range is produced in a factory close to home in the UK in an effort to reduce the number of miles the clothes have travelled. The rest are produced in Portugal, as we avoid using factories in India and China which would result in a much greater number of miles travelled for our products.
What types of products do you offer?
Beaumont Organic offers a wide range of casual day wear providing signature styling and contemporary classics made from sustainable fabrics including 100% organic cotton, linen, lyocell, tencel, bamboo and wool, in addition to using end of rolls to use up fabrics which factories would otherwise simply discard .
Teaming contrasting fabrics and unique silhouettes, the collection offers a wardrobe of transitional pieces - everything a woman needs to dress up or down, day or night. Beaumont Organic introduces two collections a year along with a collection of accessories that encompass the brands clean look. Our signature pieces are our classic oversized shirts and cosy organic sweatshirts.
