Central to all we do at Burrow and Be is walking the sustainability walk, and not being all talk and no follow through. Nature in all its forms is weaved through the stories of our collections. From the gorgeous new Merino Bamboo blend (spoiler alert!) using ethically processed bamboo in our upcoming collection, to our much loved fabric dolls with embroidered floral detailing, to our signature wind print on our Zephyr romper, nature is front and centre.
But it’s not just in our designs that the beauty of nature is celebrated. Did you know that organic cotton is about 1/3 more expensive to purchase than conventional cotton? This makes it hard when we are competing against chain stores who mass produce with very little thought for the sustainability of our world. But we do give it thought, and we are constantly challenging ourselves to do better.
As much as 2020 threw a whole heap of challenges our way, it also gave us some time back. Time to reflect on our journey, time to consider our systems and processes, time to really look at our suppliers (and in some cases find new ones whose ethics matched ours).
It also gave me time to balance and refine this next collection - I can’t wait for you all to share in our next story with us.
