Fashion Forward, Without Compromising on Ethics
Based in Brighton, ILK + ERNIE is an ethical, female-led brand. We create quality, comfortable and sustainable clothes, because our vision is to see every woman wearing clothes that not only turn heads but have a positive impact on the environment as well.
The fashion world has needed to change for a long time. As a result we do everything we can to minimise waste in our supply chain by using waste fabric from big suppliers, as well as ensuring positive working conditions for our talented team of men and women in our factory in Delhi, India.
We are for spirited, free-thinking females. Our collections are there to empower you and to ignite your confidence of self.
We are fashion forward, without compromising on ethics.
Every season, we travel to India and spend weeks trawling the markets where we purchase, recycle and re-use fabrics that larger fashion corporations have thrown away. It means we don't produce ANY fabric ourselves, and any left over samples from our factory are collected and distributed to homeless children in Delhi.
We care deeply about our garment workers, ensuring that the people producing our garments are cared for, not just financially but physically. Our talented team in Delhi (run by Sam aka Boss Man) receive all of the amazing treatment that a lot of us take for granted: fair wages, holiday pay, health insurance, safe working environments and EU standard working hours.
