Forest Dweller is a new and evolving brand created by two mums’ from deep within the glorious New Forest National Park.
We are Claire Isaacs and Emma Jackson, and this is our website where we show you all the lovely things we have designed and made whilst being inspired by our beautiful surroundings and the furry beasts that roam free!
We are quite simply lovers of the New Forest! We are also residents; 'Forest Dwellers' which makes us very lucky people indeed!
Inspired by our wonderful surroundings and driven by a desire for unique and beautiful products; locally and sustainably produced, each creation reflects Forest Dweller's defining philosophy.
We ensure all our clothing is beautifully soft and luxurious to the touch. It washes well and looks great, but this does not come at the expense of the environment or anyone involved in its creation.
Our clothing and bags are 100% organic. They have been verified as Fair Trade from the Fair Wear Foundation, and have a 90% reduction in carbon footprint. 100% of this range of garments and accessories have had an annual audit to comply with the FWF Code of Labour Practices. This complies with the International Labour Organisation’s conventions.
All our garments are made in manufacturing facilities powered by green renewable energy, and from low-impact raw materials. The carbon footprint of these products has been reduced by some 90% and certified under the PAS2050 standard.
Buy something nice - help New Forest Conservation!
Whether you are a visitor to the area, lucky enough to live here or nearby, or a Forest lover from afar, welcome! We hope you stay awhile, browse our wares, view the pretty pictures in the gallery and put your feet up - our home is your home!
Striking, yet practical tote bags, gloriously soft tee shirts and sweatshirts with flattering scoop necks, all baring the distinctive brand, to fun high quality tea towels and originally designed prints; this is just the beginning of our story...
Why compromise on ethical, environmentally sound clothing? We don't think you should.
We feel it is important that our customers have the opportunity to help the New Forest itself by buying our products, so we have chosen to donate 10% from every item we sell to the New Forest Trust who are a local charity committed to securing the future of the New Forest for everybody who loves it.
* 10% of net profit from all items sold is donated directly to the New Forest Trust.
Proud Supporters of the New Forest Trust.
