Eco Style Threads was created after many years of commuting the rat race
to London and sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day. As a child I was super
active spending as much time as I could being outside and enjoying our
I have never been one to follow the crowd, so I decided to get out of the
daily commute and go back to what's really important to me.
All the bold designs are hand drawn by myself with inspiration taken from
my love of nature, making these designs completely unique. Once sketched
the designs are turned into patterns that can be printed on a fabric made
from recycled plastic bottles.
I have sourced an ethical and eco aware manufacturer who takes the same amount of love and care I have to hand make each item using my designs.
I hope you enjoy wearing my leggings and gym tops for whatever the
occasion might be, stand out in crowd with a pop of colour.
Sparkle in all that you do
And Smile lots ;-)
CELEBRATING ECO FASHION
Eco Style Threads was born at the intersection of style and technology. Thanks to the inspiring work by companies who represent a sustainable future, we are able to bring you a vibrant collection of eco-friendly products made from 84% recycled plastic bottles.
Did you know that plastics in landfills take thousands of years to break down? Over time they degrade into smaller pieces of plastic and get absorbed into our groundwater that lead to seas and rivers. The plastic and any toxic chemicals omitted from the degrading process are harmful to our ecosystems and endanger both ourselves and many animals.

WHAT EXACTLY IS RPET?
First we need to introduce PET - it stands for polyethylene terephthalate and is the most common type of plastic resin used for containers, like disposable water bottles. Not all these containers can be recycled into a new one.
Bring on the rPET – recycled polyethylene terephthalate. The plastic undergoes various processes including washing and shredding, then it is spun into yarns of durable and strong fabric.
“Fewer than half of the bottles bought in 2016 were collected for recycling and just 7% of those collected were turned into new bottles. Instead most plastic bottles produced end up in landfill or in the ocean. ”
