TULLE FABRIC


Tulle is our core fabric at Needle & Thread and is used to make our signature embellished, embroidered and textured styles. We have developed our tulle qualities in recycled polyester which is certified under the Global Recycle Standard (GRS).

EMBELLISHMENT


Our artworks are delicately hand-drawn and embellished using a range of specially selected sequin colours to create our signature styles. Over 90% of our sequins are made from recycled plastic using self-generated waste. Our sequins are certified under the Global Recycle Standard (GRS).

EMBROIDERY


Our artworks are delicately hand drawn and embroidered using a range of bespoke thread colours to create our signature style. Each size in the collection (UK 4-22) has a tailored artwork so every size feels special.

COTTON


We regularly use a lightweight cotton fabric, lined with a cotton voile. Both qualities are made from organic cotton and are certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

CREPE DE CHINE LINING


Our tulle styles are lined with a polyester crepe-de-chine quality. We have developed our crepe de chine lining in a recycled polyester which is certified under the Global Recycle Standard (GRS).

KNITTED DRESSES


We design our knitted dresses with premium yarns to ensure the best possible fit for each style. Our knitted dresses are made from a blend of viscose, nylon and elastane. We use recycled viscose for most of our knitted dresses, which is certified under the Recycled Claim Standard (RCS).

KNITTED JUMPERS & CARDIGANS


We use a range of luxurious yarns within our knitwear collections, combining different stitches to create beautiful detailing. We only source wool that is non-mulesed. We are committed to making our knitwear more responsibly sourced and continue to source more sustainable yarns.
