From plastic in our ocean... to seaweed in our clothes...
Inland Sea was born to create clothing that helps to solve the climate crisis, not cause it.
We are Inland Sea, a family run clothing brand that wants to do fashion properly and prove we can create clothing that not only looks and feels good, but is actually good for your body and skin when worn and also benefits the planet.
We are on a mission to change the fashion world and believe we are living in the dawn of a new green revolution where we have a real chance of giving the next generation, a planet, not to just survive on but to thrive on.

Pioneers of using seaweed in clothing
In March this year, Inland Sea became proud partners with Smartfibre, Germany, to import fibre which contains seaweed called SeaCell. This is a first for UK manufacturing, to spin the fibre with cotton at our partners cotton mill, in Dukinfield, run by English Fine Cottons.
We want to establish Inland Sea as a pioneer in using seaweed in clothing and to also educate and promote the use of seaweed as a realistic resource, to help solve the climate crisis.
We have the chance to do things right and that's why we are documenting the entire process, to prove fully traceability and transparency of our supply chain. We will also be monitoring the carbon used to attempt to prove a carbon positive clothing range.

The future is green, brown and slimy...
Seaweed has the power to replace almost all the current fossil fuel driven energy and man made products. Which we now all know, has been the main cause of the climate crisis.
From plastic packaging made from seaweed, to seaweed paper for our returns slips and then the possibility to use seaweed as a natural leather alternative for shoes or bags.
With enough inspiration and innovation, we see seaweed as a realistic planet friendly alternative to the extremely problematic and unsustainable fashion crisis.
We also see investing in seaweed farms and seagrass restoration projects as part of our future vision.
