Why Organic Silk?
All silk fabrics used in my studio are organic, eco-friendly and fair trade. This starts at the very beginning in the fields of Mulberry bushes, all the way through the process to the workers in the mills. Only empty cocoons are used for reeling the silk fibres and harmless chemicals are used for boiling, twisting and weaving the fabrics. I am incredibly passionate about promoting eco-friendly products and processes within the textile industry, choosing natural organic fibres over synthetic ones and sourcing locally wherever I can.
All 'Claire L Headdon' bridal gowns and accessories are designed and handmade in my studio in Falmouth, in the UK. I believe it is incredibly important to know exactly where our clothes have come from, who has made them and to invest in passion and skill. A gown you can treasure for a lifetime.
