  • The Current - November

    Yesterday I was scraping ice off the van windscreen at 7am, ice!  That must mean Winter is around the corner and with hundreds of golden leaves piling up and the smell of fireworks everywhere, it's definitely Autumn.
  • Our New Autumn Collection

    Our Autumn Collect has arrived, hoodies and sweaters all made from a luxurious organic cotton and recycled blend. 

    Inspired by the ocean and living in the peaks, ethically made and always posted out using biodegradable packaging.

  • The Current - October

    October is our favourite month here at Inland Sea.  The sea is still warm, and we have already been getting a taste of good decent waves.  The sunlight is more playful and the colours are changing, it also means we are getting closer to snow fall and cold weather. 

    Check out what we've been up to and our plans for the Autumn. 

  • The Current - September Plans

    Waving goodbye to Summer!

    The holidays are (almost) over, the kids are heading back to school and there's definitely a chill in the air already...

    So, what are our plans for September!?

  • Print on Demand

    We officially launch our Print on Demand service.  This means less waste, more availability of sizes, colours and styles delivered directly to your home.

    We will only print the garments you order which means less waste as we will never end up with wasted surplus stock. It also means we can supply pretty much all sizes and you have a wider choice of designs and colours across more styles.

    You can even try on the garments before you buy in our shop in Macclesfield to ensure the size and fit is good, then we can take the order to be delivered to you within 7 days... 

  • A Change Is Gonna Come

    To end Plastic Free July, it only seems right to push to use what we think could completely replace plastic based polyester in clothing. 

    Rather than looking at recycling polyesters or even using rPET (recycled plastic bottles) we believe we need solutions which are carbon positive and are also good for you when worn. 

    You may have already guessed, but we believe that solution can be found in seaweed, want to learn more?

  • How to go Plastic Free by Laura Young

    Laura Young AKA Less Waste Laura is a climate activist, public speaker, zero waste advocate and environmental scientist, based in Glasgow. 

    We recently caught up with Laura to get some top tips in how to reduce and potentially eliminate your plastic consumption.

    Check out all her top tips on The Current here.

  • Don't you forget about sea(weed)

    In support of plastic free July we're celebrating seaweed! Seaweed is taking its moment in the spotlight as a sustainable, biodegradable, environmentally friendly alternative to plastic. Seaweed packing can be made to dissolve in water, is edible (have your burger and eat the wrapping too) and can biodegrade just like a fruit or vegetable. Check out our blog for more exciting ways we're beginning to use seaweed instead of plastic.
  • Ama: The free diving fisherwomen of Japan

    The Ama women are deeply woven into Japanese history. Ama, translated roughly to ‘women of the sea,’ perform the practice of free diving, for sixty seconds at a time to depths of twenty metres without equipment. The skill has been taught from mother to daughter for thousands of years although the true date of origin is disputed. Some believe it can be traced back 5,000 years, though others contend this was more likely 3,000 years ago.
  • Women of The Sea

    As part of our celebration of the ocean this month we’ve been inspired by the Ama Women of Japan, free diving fisherwomen who walk along the seabed for up to two minutes collecting and harvesting sea vegetables.

    In honour of the Ama, we’ve collected stories of women from around the British Isles. 

  • SAS 250 Club Members + interview

    We are super proud to announce our Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) 250 Club membership!

    Although we have been members for some time now, we were waiting to announce it with an interview with SAS all about the incredible work they have been doing since their formation in 1990 in response to awful sewage problems here in the UK.  Since then they have done some incredible work and really ramped up their scope and audience in recent years to help solve plastic pollution and be part of the the fight for the planet's survival.
