About ford & guy

Started by Suzie Ford in 2020, ford & guy is passionate about sustainable clothing that is locally handmade. Suzie makes each product in her workshop in Nottingham, England:

“My main aim is to increase access to and choice in responsible products. This is not to increase overall product consumption, but to change the way that we think about the fashion industry.”

We use a mixture of certified organic, fair trade and locally-sourced fabrics with a rich plant-based content. These include organic cotton, European linen and cellulosic fabrics. To ensure durable and long-lasting products, we use 100% recycled polyester thread and interfacing to avoid virgin polyester whilst using strong and flexible fibres where it is needed. Moreover, we make our products either in small batches or to order so that we do not produce waste.
