fable dresses - Mount Vernon, WA

image57

This little shop of mine blossomed out of my love for taking things old, used, and unwanted and creating something new and beautiful. It is extremely important to me to be eco-friendly and when you purchase an item from me you are getting a quality, handmade garment that had almost no impact on the Earth. I often even use vintage thread, make some of my dyes out of plants and roots, and re-use snaps, buttons, and zippers when possible.  


My dresses are not meant to be common. They are for people that are not afraid to be a bit different and stand out. They are the alternative to the mainstream foreign factory made dresses. Each piece I make is an original.

Sunny rose bridal

image58

I'm Heather and I have a passion for Heirloom gowns! I have worked in the bridal alterations business for years and was so bothered by the waste created by standard gowns. I started Sunny Rose to combine my love of vintage heirloom gowns and my desire to cut down on waste in the bridal industry. I recycle and reclaim vintage gowns and create a new and beautifully modern gown for a future bride! I can't stand seeing a gown with so much potential waste away at thrift stores or turn into a bloody Halloween costume.
I love redesigning gowns for clients as well, and have worked on gowns almost a hundred years old!

Ethically made wedding gowns are beautiful inside and out.

Each one of Pure Magnolia's team members is passionate about what we do; not just about making pretty wedding dresses, it is easy to be passionate about that. We are passionate about creating a fashion industry that is good for our society, rather than one that profits from harming people and the earth. We stand for Ethical values in the fashion industry, fabric production, labor wages and conditions and responsible utilization of raw materials. We think that every fashion company, big or small, had a responsibility to society to make ethical choices that don’t just reflect the bottom line.


Patty created this company after seeing how much waste and how unethical the fashion, and specifically, wedding industry is. Patty wanted to make a difference, to make wedding gowns that brides were happy and proud to wear because they knew the people who made the dress, they knew the fabrics came from factories that were making ethical choices, they knew the bottom line was not the goal.

raiment of white - Canada

image62

I am inspired by the beauty that surrounds, by a time long since forgotten, yet still lingering in the recesses of the mind... by the intrinsic poetry that exists in our very souls. Having been creating wedding dresses and working with brides for over a decade all over the world, I am also inspired by... True Love. I wanted Raiment of White dresses to be pure from the fibre to the finishing, so I set out to find the purest, handcrafted linen and textiles available. Raiment of White dresses are made of the finest organic fabric, handcrafted by a small scale manufacturer who is dedicated to ethical practices. They grow and manufacture their %100 organic, chemical and sweatshop free materials. Needless to say they are committed to sustainable living and practices that enrich the environment and its creatures. This is just chapter 1 of Raiment of White. Our first collection                                 includes three timeless wedding gowns that can be cherished long after your vows. Each gown features delicate embroidered details all done using a free-hand embroidery technique. All of the dresses are made by me in my Northern Canadian studio, and I work together with my true love, my little dog Norman, and canary Sebastian who graces us with his masterful songs.

Indiebride London

Indiebride London takes pride in being a sustainable bridal wear brand. It is important for us to not just create beautiful bohemian wedding dresses but also to take our nature’s wellbeing in consideration. The most important dress of your life can be made respecting the environment and people on it. At Indiebride London, you will know who made your wedding dress and where the materials came from. All our dresses are made to order. This means we don’t hold any dresses in stock. When an order is placed, we will make the dress from scratch. This means we only make a dress when someone wants to wear it on their wedding day. This ensures that every dress we make has a personal connection. At Indiebride London, you work closely with the person that makes your dress. Instead of producing the dresses in a factory somewhere else, we make all our dresses ourselves from the first cut to the last finishings. Each dress and accessory is hand crafted and hand embellished in our London studio using the highest quality laces and silks. When we receive an order, we then order the right materials for that specific dress only. When we receive the materials, we cut the dress and then sew it together. We also make the alterations ourselves if any is needed. We value the handmade nature and quality of our products. Our dresses and accessories have a story behind them.

At the core of each and every MELO handmades' item is a passion for slow-creating and the desire to capture beauty. Often taking several days from start to finish, each piece of tapestry, jewellery and accessory is delicate and feminine, perfect for those who appreciate timeless elegance and fine quality. 

Originally from Singapore, MELO handmades is now based in Sydney, where every piece of tapestry, jewellery and accessory is lovingly handcrafted in my home studio.

Splashes of colour are added with natural dye pigments, extracted from dye stuffs with hot water. Embellishments, ranging from beads and sequins to lace and hand-wound tassels, are hand-stitched one by one, before finishing each piece with the finest findings.

Stemming from the love of nature, MELO handmades also aims to respect Mother Earth in the best possible way. Natural materials are used as much as possible while careful planning and working in small batches minimise the waste created. Gift boxes are also made from recycled material while other packaging items such as ribbons and mailing pouches can be easily reused or recycled.
