Peach Eyes is a luxury, British-made, slow fashion brand founded by myself, Jennifer Healy, a fashion designer based in the Northeast of England.
As we begin to acknowledge the harsh reality of the negative impact that fast fashion has on the Earth, the demand for sustainable alternatives has unsurprisingly increased.
We MUST change our ways.
Peach Eyes focusses on the slower fashion market, creating pieces which have been lovingly manufactured in small exclusive batches in the North East.
The colourful and exciting garments have a graphic and retro edge aimed at people of all ages. Shopping responsibly doesn’t have to be boring!
The inspiration behind the brand Peach Eyes started with the close relationship I had with my lovely Granny. My Granny adored flowers, teaching me how to paint them from a young age.
In fact, ‘Peach Eyes’ is actually a Dwarf Bearded Iris, I often found this flower being referred to in her gardening journal and fell in love with the name!
To pay homage to the wonderful woman who helped inspire me to create this brand, I have named each piece after her favourite flowers in her memory.
Mixed in with this love of nature and painting, is my infatuation with all things retro! From trapeze shapes to bold graphic prints.
About the Founder
Having successfully studied for a Fashion Design Degree at Manchester School of Art, I began my fashion career by winning a scholarship award at Graduate Fashion Week.
This led to several years in industry experiencing a variety of departments for a high street retailer.
With a desire to explore the possibilities of more responsible and creative design, I made the decision to follow my dreams by founding my own label in my hometown of Barnard Castle.
Sustainability & Ethics
I work closely with experienced and skilled pattern cutters, visiting the studio on a weekly basis to ensure each step of the process is at its highest quality.
Each item is carefully cut out, sewn, and pressed by expert workers who are treated fairly in the workplace. A far cry from fast fashion sweatshops.
This meticulous arrangement adds time to the manufacturing process, so with this in mind please allow up to 3 weeks to receive your order.
Our prints are digitally printed as opposed to screen printed as this method is more environmentally friendly. Our manufacturers use Azo dye-free inks on OEKO-TEX certified fabrics.
Our fabrics are responsibly sourced, using recycled or organic bases where possible. When we do occasionally use fabrics made with traditional techniques, we work with established high quality fabric suppliers, such as Linton Tweeds.
Our packaging is all recycled and/ or recyclable. We encourage customers to re-use any tissue paper or packing products where possible to ensure less wastage.
