This gilet is made to order. There will be a two week lead time.

It started with A better Gilet: Thornham. More than the one ‘sustainable’ gilet in the line, we used the gilet as a testing ground for the recycled version of our signature Lavenster fabric. The goal was always to extend this new fabric innovation out across the whole range. We achieved that, and after using up our existing stock of Lavenster, we’ve gradually switched all our factory production over to recycled Lavenster.

A Better Gilet: Longline Barton is the next step on. Taking our most popular women’s gilet, The Barton Longline, in addition to the recycled Lavenster, part recycled wadding and organic cotton corduroy, we’ve moved our sewing threads over to a 100% recycled polyester version and added new buttons made from recycled paper instead of our usual plastic.
Just as the original A Better Gilet, this is by no means the end of our journey. We continue to seek out new ways to clean up our production in order to live within the means of our planet.
