Our Environmental Initiatives
At Tatty Devine sustainability within our business practices, products, and operations is very important to us. We’re proud to pioneer jewellery design and strive to be at the forefront of adopting the latest techniques and sustainable practices.
This year we are exploring our supply chain and carbon footprint. We work hard to use as much recycled acrylic as we can - currently 20% of all our products are made with recycled acrylic and we will continue to increase this number.
All Tatty Devine jewellery has been designed in our London studio since 1999 by co-founders Harriet Vine MBE and Rosie Wolfenden MBE, before being laser-cut in small batches and handmade in Kent by our team of expert makers.
Designed for life, each piece is crafted with longevity in mind and couldn’t be further from fast fashion. We’re also proud to have offered all our customers a repair service across the majority of our collections since day one - our jewellery can truly last a lifetime. Score!
We're upping out recycled game and are now in the process of recycling our own offcuts into beautiful shades of acrylic not available in recycled form from our suppliers. Discover all Tatty Devine jewellery made from 100% recycled and part-recycled recycled acrylic here
Production & Suppliers
In 2020, we fully moved over to small-batch production, meaning you might have to wait a little longer for some pieces to come back in stock, as we work to reduce waste and ensure that everything we make is valued and loved. We even introduced a pre-order system for those seriously intricate statement designs!
All our chains and findings are sourced from our trusted supplier in China (the only manufacturer of our iconic plectrum charm), ordering just twice a year to reduce our carbon footprint.
In 2019, we partnered with Teemill to bring you the first Tatty Devine Tees and Sweatshirts made from certified organic cotton. All our clothing is printed to order and produced with minimal waste in a factory powered by renewable energy. We soon welcomed Tote Bags to the collection, too! Did you know that Teemill also operates a circular economy? That means you can send your clothing back to them to recycle.
We’re committed to finding the right type of packaging that ensures the longevity of your precious pieces whilst having the lowest impact on the environment. Since 2023, all Tatty Devine jewellery boxes are fully recyclable! Manufactured using eco-friendly, organic and Fairtrade® materials, the recycled cardboard is produced via responsible forestry means, using water-based glue. Each black foam insert is sustainably made including the use of tall oil, a natural by-product derived from wooden pulp production, which is 100% free from crude oil.
Since 2016, energy used to make our jewellery and run our studio and shop has been 100% matched by renewable sources, plus any gases used are fully carbon offset through our energy provider’s partner, Renewable World.
Where possible we make sure we're leaving a greener footprint on the planet, our studios and stores use sustainably sourced toilet paper and have plenty of eco refills at the ready for cleaning products.
Recycle & Repair
We’ve also been working with our local recycling providers to ensure we recycle as much of our waste as possible, however small.
Ever since we started making jewellery way back in 1999, we’ve been on a mission to increase the longevity of our pieces. From replacing chains to re-studding crystals and even replacing pieces of acrylic: we always try our best to restore your precious pieces, get in touch with customer care and we’ll see what we can do!
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
At Tatty Devine we are an inclusive company and encourage you to bring your whole self to work. We embrace everyone's ideas and work collaboratively whilst making sure we have fun. We value and celebrate diversity and this extends to our choice of models, partners and suppliers too.
