If you’re new to this page and my company, welcome!

Geg & Hen specialise in made to order, handmade linen clothing and accessories.

Our style ethos is simple: Slow Fashion, which involves buying better quality garments that will last longer, therefore reducing waste to landfill.

We offer a viable, wearable alternative to the fast, throwaway fashion of the High Street.

This month we're excited to welcome a new partner to the Geg & Hen brand.

 
Cushie Doo Textiles
 
Cushie Doo Textiles create sustainable homeware & accessories, where even the packaging is eco-friendly, using recycled and recyclable materials. 


Inga, the owner of Cushie Doo Textiles, hand carves her unique designs onto lino blocks, then hand prints each piece onto natural fabrics, using eco-friendly water based inks, to make a unique range of original and sustainable homeware & accessories.

All of the products are then carefully hand stitched in her studio, paying every attention to detail.


The linen and cotton fabrics she uses for printing are woven locally in Fife - Scotland, and wherever possible all other supplies are sourced from the United Kingdom, helping support other businesses.


Inga's inspiration comes from a range of sources ~ nature, pattern, colour, texture, architecture, and the Arts & Crafts movement.

Slow Fashion is an awareness and approach to fashion, which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing, particularly focusing on sustainability. It involves buying better-quality garments that will last for longer and values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.
 

The term Slow Fashion came about quite organically. It was coined by Kate Fletcher of the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, following the phenomena of the Slow Food movement. As with the slow food movement, Fletcher saw a need for a slower pace in the fashion industry.
 

Slow Fashion opposes the Fast Fashion model that emerged around 20 years ago.  And it’s fair to say Slow Fashion is 100% necessary, with brands like H&M burning 12 tonnes of unsold garments per year in spite of its ongoing sustainability efforts to close the loop in fashion.*
