Our Ethos : Sustainability Made Simple

Sewing sustainably just got easier.

James Tailoring was founded on the idea of bringing together the very best in responsible, sustainable haberdashery and trims to Designers and Makers across the world. Our innovative products have been designed to be responsible, ethical and a sustainable choice for the fashion industry.

Our founder Richard Mendham set about curating a range of essential sewing products that were both responsible and sustainable. Richard’s extensive background in the textile industry has given us a wealth of experience and knowledge of the products we need to provide. Richard saw first hand the inevitable, widespread damage of the fashion industry. As well as the race to profiteering over accountability, but now we welcome the increasing demand for change in the fashion industry by consumers.

James Tailoring is our family run business, since launching in 2018 Richard’s two daughters now work for the business and manage the growing team. We are committed to minimising the environmental impact as much as possible within the fashion industry. We source all our products from sustainable and responsible suppliers who share our values and are as passionate about changing the fashion industry as we are.

Certificated organic elastic, GRS recycled elastics, our Eco-sewing threads are made from Tencel, organic cotton or recycled plastic thread, ethical fabrics and Corozo and Codelite buttons are just some of our game changing products that are revolutionising the way clothes are made. We can’t wait to show you around!
