SUSTAINABILITY

We are dedicated to the ethical and environmental qualities of our collection and understanding the origins of our materials. Here's more about our sustainability journey so far.

Our Products

We will always reject fast fashion, and the waste that comes with it.

We are dedicated to the ethical qualities of our collection and understanding the origins of our materials.

Our artisans treat all our linen with natural dyes - completely eliminating any potential hazardous chemicals from beginning to end. This process also ensures natural softness and breathability of every piece in our collection for years to come, not just for a season. 

Unlike the typical choice of using plastic buttons on shirts, we have opted to use a more sustainable material - cork. Not only do our cork buttons give our shirts a natural look and feel, they are also completely biodegradable.

It’s a natural part of an Epicurean's life, and as such, a part of ours; to preserve that which we enjoy. We respect the beauty, and wish to make Psamathe more harmonious with the Earth, Sea and sand that it originates from.

Did You Know?

Portugal is famous for their cork forests, also known as ‘Montado’ which is amongst the top biodiversity hotspots in Europe. By cork stripping the trees in the Montado you actually improve the health of the trees and their ability to retain 5 times more CO2. In simple terms, by choosing cork made fashion products you’re defending the Montado and by doing so you’re protecting the Planet. We love the detail our cork buttons give our shirts, and know you will too!

Our Packaging

We have made the deliberate choice of simplifying our packaging and the path it takes to get to you. 

Without compromising the care of your product of choice, we are taking steps to completely remove all unnecessary packaging that cannot be reused or recycled. We believe that even the smallest details must serve a purpose whilst ensuring the products that get to you are of highest quality.

We ship your products in our beautifully crafted canvas bag that many of our Epicureans have reused as a wet towel or laundry bag for future travel. 

Did You Know?

Part of what makes our philosophy so entrenched throughout, is our desire to learn and our appreciation for details. You’ll notice that ordering from us is offset by the planting of trees. We do this to take accountability for our distribution.

Our People

We consciously chose a factory in Portugal whose values align with our own.

Family owned since 1954, our manufacturer is equipped with the most modern machinery and highly qualified as well as experienced team. Complementary to Psamathe, they specialize in the making of luxury dress and casual shirts made for life, not just a season. They are also GOT certified providing us the ease of mind that careful selection is top priority within their supply chain.

Did You Know?

Well cared for, linen should last you a lifetime. And it only gets better with age. Thanks to its natural antibacterial properties, linen does not need to be washed as regularly as other fabrics such as cotton meaning less water and energy usage for your  product's lifecycle.

Rejecting Fast Fashion

We will always reject fast fashion, and the waste that comes with it. We are dedicated to the ethical qualities of our collection and understanding the origins of our materials.

The Sustainable Choice

By choosing to naturally dye rather than dip-dying our shirts they remain fit for purpose, keeping you cool in hot climates whilst also being conscious of our world.

Details Matter

We have opted to use the more sustainable material, cork, for our buttons rather than plastic.

100% Organic Italian Linen

All our shirts are fabricated with GOTS certified organic Italian linen which is always sourced in small batches.

Climate Restoration

We fund climate projects that regenerate coastal ecosystems.
