Product Design and circularity
Every decision from our garment design and wearability to our thoughtfully
sourced natural fabrics are made to support our environmental goals.
Our fabric selections adhere to a resolute zero plastic policy, favouring recycled fibers, (MMC) man-made cellulosic materials, and natural fibers as best practices.
We are working towards designing with circularity in mind.
As we undertake this journey, our core focuses are:
- Responsible Fibres
- Safe Dyes and Fabric Treatments
- Supply Chain Traceability
- End of Life Solutions
Our plastic free policy includes the use of Tencel sewing thread, Corozo buttons, ethical Agoya Shell buttons and cotton trims that break down and metal zips that can be recycled at end of life.

End of life solutions
Our commitment to a zero plastic policy in our fibres and packaging began after our first compost trial, conducted with scientists at Neutrog Australia on our inaugural collection in 2022.
Our biggest learning was on a fabric composition of 97% Cotton with 3% Elastane. The trial showed us that just 3% elastane in a fabric is all that remains after 51 days in compost.
Seeing these results was the resolute turning point for Sunset Lover. Since our inaugural collection we now reduce our fossil fuel impact through our zero plastic policy.
Sunset Lover R&D is currently spearheading compostable trials in collaboration with Peats Soil and BiobiN. This marks our stride toward becoming the inaugural certified compostable luxury fashion brand.
The trial we will be looking into broad range of fashion items that are changeable every season and how this can be composted taking into consideration different fabric types, garment constructions, trims, fusing, elastic, zips and labelling.
Our aim is to develop a method of composting a complex garment.
The trial will take an approach using Oeko-tex (Chemical testing standard) and physical composting tests to ensure our fabrics and garments will not leave anything harmful behind.
At Sunset Lover we believe in making a positive impact for People and Planet. This trial and our goal to leave nothing behind is our way of enacting this.
