Exeter-based bridal dress designer Sarah Treble says sustainability is key

A sketch by Exeter-based bridal dress designer Sarah Treble Bridal dress designer Sarah Treble based in Exeter, Devon makes each gown to order in-house, or by using a small team of local seamstresses, so there's no waste and nothing is created abroad. The fabric is ordered in and any off-cuts are usually incorporated into new designs.

Sarah is proud of her sustainable ethos and loves visiting antique markets for lace, silk scarves, decorative buttons and other gems that can be used when making new dresses. Sarah has seen an increase in popularity for brides re-fashioning family wedding dresses. She tells us, "This is such a lovely thing to do – not only is it sustainable but it creates a family heirloom with a personal touch."

Sarah is currently researching sustainable alternatives to traditional silk such as bamboo silk which is already popular. Lesser known is orange or citrus silk, a soft, waste-free vegan silk made using the orange and lemon husks from the juicing industry. Sarah's fashionable designs, shown here, include shorter styles, separates and trouser suits.
