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
I love this blazer. I like the unique styling which sets it apart from other more mainstream blazers. I ordered a large size and it first really well without being too long in the arms, which is an issue I've had in the past.
There's some great detailing like the buttons and the patches at the elbow. I wore it with some light chinos and trainers and it looked great. I'd advise the manufacturers to consider designing some matching trousers to create a really unique and relaxed 'suit'
My new blazer arrived yesterday and it’s actually better than I thought it might be. Fit is spot-on (I’m usually a large but ordered a medium), the material is really soft but sturdy and it looks great on. I can’t wait to go out in it when life gets back to normal and I look forward to wearing it for many years to come !
