Leif Erikkson is Sublime Magazine Good brand Award 2016 winner with its ethical artisan pieces that are sustainable at it's core: eco-friendly fabrics and components as well as recycling and energy and waste efficient processes are one of its main values.

Our aim is to provide quality products that do not comprise on the manufacture, and minimize on the environmental impact of the business and supply chain. We counter fast, cheap fashion and damaging patterns of fashion consumption with timeless and contemporary clothes.

Being a sustainable designer is so much fun. I meet people and artisan businesses who are passionate about what they believe and who carefully consider their craft to create things of a very high standard. This, I relate to and reiterate in my own business ethos.
