We are a black-owned sustainable fashion & ethical gift department shop.
Sancho's was founded in 2015 with a mission of making sustainable fashion accessible on the high street and beyond in the hopes of supporting the growth of a fair, safe and equitable fashion industry. After University Kalkidan wished to work in sustainable development. As such she worked for various NGO's around the world, only to find that the most impactful way we can make a difference to the lives of impoverished people around the world is through fair , safe and equitable trade.
Sancho's was born from the wish to put the best sustainable, slow, and artisan brands under one roof to make it super easy for people to make a difference as they shop.
Kalkidan's story was recently featured on BBC ONE in the docu series 'Bossing it' Watch it here now.
Our mission is to make it easy for shoppers to prioritise people and the planet. We do this by curating the best sustainable fashion brands and putting them under one roof. And by working with our customers to help them find exactly what they need. If you have any questions about our products please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have five key ways of ensuring our products are sustainable and ethical.
Materials: We only source products made from organic, recycled or recyclable materials
Quality: We ensure that everything we sell lasts, and offer up to 3 guarantee on all of our sales just in case.
Equality: We use third-party accreditation to make sure that there is no forced labour in any of our b supply chains.
Inclusivity: We allocate 30% of our budget to Black Owned and Size inclusive brands to ensure sustainable fashion is as inclusive as it should be in 2022.
Circularity: We have partnered with OWNI, a circular clothing platform that helps our customers buy and sell our clothes second hand.
We are a small but passionate team based in Exeter, UK. We are a living wage employer.
