Izzy Lane is a cutting edge and unique ethical luxury brand which has in its short existence, since 2007, established its credentials as one of the leading ethical brands in the world. It is widely recognised as the leading voice of animal welfare in the fashion industry as well as being a leading voice for the use of British Wool and the British Textile Industry
At it’s core are the 500 rare breed sheep which have been rescued from slaughter and whose wool is used in our Collection. Our flock of Wensleydale and Shetland sheep comprise mainly of animals that would have been sent to slaughter for being – male, missing a pregnancy, being a little lame, being too small, being too old or having imperfections such as a black spot in a white fleece. We pay equal and better prices to save them. These sheep will live out their whole natural lives in our sheep sanctuary in North Yorkshire and their wool is used in our knitwear and wovens.
We have shown our collections at London Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, LA, Berlin, Paris and Milan. We won the prestigious RSPCA Good Business Award in 2008 and 2012. We have won the RE New Designer of the Year Award at the world’s first ethical fashion awards. We have had successful collaborations with Hobbs and Topshop and have been invited to show our collection in a catwalk show before the Queen. We have had extensive press coverage on BBC, ITV, Sky, TV and Radio as well as in national and international press.
