Ethical and Sustainable Sleepwear

Pyjamas are for life, not just for Christmas Winter!

I absolutely love pyjamas. I love them to be matching, i love them to be loose and comfy and of course I love them to look good enough to run to the corner shop for milk in. I will admit, incase it’s not already obvious, but i am a bit obsessive with them and I believe it’s important to have sets in all different weights for all the different seasons, haha.

Sustainable Sleepwear Roundup

I really wanted to do a bigger round up of ethical and sustainable pyjamas that are available for the UK, but i have found it a lot harder than I thought. Especially, it seems to find options for every price bracket. I am pretty sure that it’s almost impossible to find ethical and sustainable pyjamas for the lower end of budgets. Let me know if you can prove me wrong!

People Tree have quite a well priced range of basic pyjamas – here – (prices from around £20 – £55) but I didn’t include them below as their current stock seems to be a bit sparse, but check them out anyway just in case they have what you are looking for.

So the conclusion I’ve come to is that probably the most sustainable, ethical and zero waste sleepwear is to simply just wear an old t-shirt or of course nothing at all (if you’re lucky to be warm enough). I am also quite partial to a large vintage shirt in the summer, which can also be quite fun if you find something interesting or with a cool pattern. Be sure to check your local charity and vintage shops or on-line; Beyond Retro, Rokit, Etsy and Ebay are always safe bets!

So anyway, if you are in the market for a beautiful pyjama set here are 3 brands making beautiful options all suitable for these, finger crossed, warmer months;

  1. NoLoGo Tina Malhame

Tina has spent a long time working as a designer in the fashion industry for various different brands and companies. She now channels her energy into her own brand NoLoGo. Her speciality is sourcing and designing clothing in natural fibres from and for all around the world. Her cotton pyjamas are hand block printed and come in 3 colour ways (blue, white and pink), along with night dresses. Currently they are on sale for £25, I don’t know how much the price will increase when they aren’t on offer but if you’re quick thats an absolute steal!

 

    2. Tales of Thread

Ok so number 2 on my list is the absolute coolest PJ brand I have recently discovered; Tales of Thread. An ethical platform who partner with emerging creatives and designers to give them a platform and they work with a transparent supply chain, also working with female owed and managed factories all to the claim of producing the first 100% ethically sources sleepwear collection – find out more here. Not only all of the above but their prints and patterns are so cool you 100% will be proud to wear them to the corner shop. Price wise they are mid-high end with prices for full sets starting around £55 and going up to £165, the good news is that most of the prints are made in styles for all genders so matching is a must 😉

 

    3. RADICE

And working our way up to the very high end of beautiful sleepwear is Radice. Only using 100% sustainable materials and the highest quality silk and paying their producers 25% more than traditional retailers. Radice have a small compact selection of plain silk and a few beautiful chosen patterns, if you fancy something a bit more fancy. Radice are definitely the high luxury end of the market with prices starting at £100 for a pair of shorts going right up to about £429 for a full set of long leg and sleeve pyjamas. Silk is one of the toughest and most durable fabrics though so you can at least be sure these will last a long long time.
