Meet the Founder
Hi, I'm Krisha, and I started Tula + Tye during the 2020 lockdown, as I searched for eco-friendly and ethically-made loungewear and realised that there was very little out there that was both affordable and on-trend. With a sudden need to fill this gap and parents rooted in the textiles industry, I was inspired to learn about different fabrics, dyes and processes that lead me to create Tula + Tye.
As the world becomes more and more aware of the impact of our lifestyle on the environment, I wanted to ensure that our pieces held strong values to protect both people and the planet. I hope you love our conscious, colourful and comfortable loungewear and that you feel great wearing it.
Tūla means ‘cotton’ in Sanskrit; one of the most important commodities in the world. As a natural fibre, cotton is sustainable and renewable, but in recent years, the quantity needed to support the fast fashion industry has meant huge amounts of water consumption and chemical usage have become part of the process.
At Tula + Tye we believe that the future of fashion can be sustainable and ethical, as well as socially and environmentally responsible. One day, we hope that this will be the new normal, but for now, we’re leading the way by bringing you our collection of inclusive and conscious unisex clothing.
Five percent of all Tula + Tye profits will be donated to The Ocean Cleanup; a non-profit organisation developing technologies and systems to both clean up existing waste and prevent plastic pollution.
Tula + Tye products are made with high-quality sustainable materials from a mixture of pre- and post-consumer textiles, organic cotton, and recycled plastic bottles that have been transformed into polyester.
These are hand-dyed in the UK using water-based eco-friendly pigments that are non-toxic for both humans and the environment - some of our dyes are even obtained from local factories who were prepared to let them go to waste. Our labels, tags and packaging are all made from organic and recycled materials and are recyclable or reusable and our mailing bags are biodegradable.
To minimise waste, we make everything in small quantities, but you can email us to enquire about stock and we'll see what we can do!
We have carefully chosen to work with suppliers who share our values and have a strong commitment to both people and the planet.
All our suppliers are all certified by one or more of the following bodies:
GOTS, Global Recycle Standard, Recycled Claim Standard, Organic Content Standard, Oeko-Tex Standard 100, the Fair Wear Foundation, Sedex and REACH.
Our dyes are approved by the Soil Association and Oeko-Tex Eco Passport.
