Welcome to the world of Slow Fashion - Bow Savile Style

The fashion industry is being turned on its head. The emergence of new fast fashion brands turning around catwalk copies in microseconds, leveraging factories with appalling working conditions, not only in Asia. On the other side of the industry traditional retailers are being disrupted by the emergence of online retailers providing 24/7 access to shopping opportunities to an increasingly confident digital consumer.

Bow Savile is a different kind of business. We celebrate the world of slow fashion. We want to produce to the highest ethical and sustainable standards and create a quality product that will endure and be desired by future generations. We do not want our clothes to be disposable or based on the latest trend. This is not an easy task, for example, the resellers of fabric are often unable to provide the provenance of a fabric. Finding manufacturers who fit with our standards and quality criteria  is also challenging. Our commitment to the Bow Savile customers is that we are doing everything we can to improve the sustainability and ethics of our supply chain. We are just at the start of this process but we are very happy with our first collection. Our fabrics are made in Europe and we are producing in London with a wonderful fashion studio focused on training and development of machinists to keep the industry alive in the UK.
