Made for everyone, and built to last.
We've put craft at the centre of everything we do, carefully considering each part of our process from sourcing, through design, to manufacture. Each and every component of our products are deliberately chosen, from fabric to buttons, and the packaging that each garment arrives in.
We're not perfect, but we're always trying to improve. We're certain that fast fashion is our number one enemy, and by choosing our materials consciously, we can make products that are a bit better for the world we live in.
Organic cotton *
Cotton is one of the most widely used fabrics in the clothing industry, due to it’s versatility, breathability, and ease of care. However, it starts as a raw material that needs a lot of care and attention whilst it grows. In the growing of organic cotton, farmers choose not to use toxic chemicals, which is better for both the environment and farm workers alike. We work with suppliers that insist on using *GOTS certified Organic Cotton. This means that all Uskees products are made from fully certified fabrics, offering us and our customers some peace of mind in the process.
Those buttons, eh. They’re not just any old buttons. They’re Corozo buttons. In a world full of plastic, we knew we needed to use something much better for the environment.
After a lot of research, we came across the Tagua Palm - a tree that grows in the equatorial rainforests of Central America. The nuts of this palm tree are harvested and used as “vegetable ivory” – a truly miraculous natural material. In our quest to create a genuine alternative to disposable fashion, we felt that the Corozo button was the perfect accompaniment to our organic cotton garments.
*The thread is not organic*
Nowadays, we're encouraged to throw our clothes onto the scrap heap at the slightest sign of wear and tear.
That's why we've created a product that is legitimately durable and built to last. But we understand that at some point, any product is bound to start tiring.
To try to combat the issue of clothes going to the landfill, we've built a cohesive repair system into our brand, to target each stage of the products lifespan.
All of our Uskees garments come with a free repair kit. These kits are tailored to each product, providing the appropriate materials to take care of any small repairs
Fast delivery in stylish packaging. Smock is well made in great fabric. Super comfortable design and love the colour.
I really want to love this smock, I’ve been looking for something like it for quite some time - the ethos is great, the colour is great, the fabric is great, the design is great, I love the repair kit idea and tote bag it comes with, its fantastic to wear, but there’s a lot of little drops in quality on my garment that makes me think it won’t last as long as I’d like it to, that I might have to use the repair kit sooner than I would like! After the first few wears both draw cords have begun to fray and shed a lot of loose threads, and I have to keep them permanently tied otherwise I'm afraid they’ll unravel completely, so they’ll need replacing fairly soon, which is annoying. After a couple of weeks taking it on and off the V of the neck has also begun to tear a little bit, so I’ll have to be more careful handling it in future and keep an eye on that part as well. As I said before, I like the brand, I like the garment, but it’s frustrating having problems with it so soon after purchasing it, and I’d have thought it’d be sturdier and harder-wearing given this brand’s ethos. Despite all this, I would still support this brand in the future, as I think their materials, ethics and designs are great and very vital at the moment.
Smock arrived quickly and looks great.
Small touches make the difference.
Happy to recommend Uskees.

Like the repair kit it comes with.
