A sustainable luxury pyjama brand created with the desire to be loving to your skin and our planet, Charlotte Dunn Design is a labour of love, offering conscious shoppers a relaxing sleepwear wardrobe that elevates bedtime. As seen in Style Magazine, Evening Standard and the Times, Charlotte Dunn Design is committed to ensuring that each item is produced in the most environmentally friendly and ethical way, in order to allow customers to truly sleep easy.
About the Founder
Charlotte always knew that she wanted to work within the fashion world, but the environmental impacts of the industry had held her back. Whilst working at a eco-friendly bridal boutique in London, Charlotte discovered the joys of bamboo silk, which led to the budding entrepreneur creating a pair of pyjamas for herself. She then began working alongside her mother Roberta – together, they have poured care into each pair.
“Pyjamas should be not only be beautiful, but also thoughtfully created, to ensure the gift of a good night’s sleep”
Charlotte Dunn Design works mainly with bamboo material in the form of bamboo “silk”, created in an organic and GOTS-certified factory using closed-loop production. This is then embroidered with 100% organic cotton thread.
The linen used by the brand is made in Belgium, and this is also organic, GOTS-certified, and made with a closed-loop technology.
The brand favours factories that are GOTS-certified, which ensures safe working conditions and assurance against discrimination and child lavour
Where possible, Charlotte visits the factories in London or Italy – where embroidery is done – and Roberta has visited the facility in Belgium. This way, the brand maintains a good relationship and ensures their ethical requirements are met.
All materials used by the brand are produced using closed-loop systems to ensure pollution to the surrounding environment is minimised. The garments are manufactured in a zero-waste factory in London, where all unusable textile off-cuts are recycled into new materials such as insulation, sports equipment filler and carpet underlay. The factory also uses energy-saving servo motors on all equipment, which equates to 80-90% energy savings compared to a traditional clutch motor.
Biodegradable packaging is used where plastic is necessary, and packaging overall is reduced to the minimum. Products are shipped in recyclable cardboard mail boxes.
Charlotte Dunn Design wants to be the vegan alternative to silk pyjamas. Caring for the environment is of utmost importance to Charlotte – which also includes caring for animals. By working with bamboo “silk”, the brand has been able to offer luxury nightwear with the same high-end, luxurious characteristics as silk, without harming the environment or any animals in the production process.

What are vegan trainers made from?
Vegan trainers (and sneakers) are made without the use of any animal materials, such as leather, suede, fur or wool. Vegan shoes are made of a variety of fabrics, traditionally synthetic but increasingly using innovative materials derived from nature with all the properties of leather, such as apple leather, cactus leather and bio-based leather (made from oil derived from cereal crops). Many synthetic trainers are now made using recycled plastics from ocean trash.
Are vegan trainers waterproof?
That depends on the style and the fabric in question. Canvas trainers are not waterproof, vegan or otherwise. But most of our trainers are water-resistant and some are also waterproof, as well durable and 100% vegan.
Are vegan trainers durable?
The quick answer: yes! But you can make them last longer by taking care of the shoes. Just as you would care for animal-leather trainers, you should look after your vegan leather trainers. With proper care, vegan trainers can last anywhere from two to five years, depending on how much wear and tear they encounter, which is the same as their animal-leather counterparts.
Are trainers the same as sneakers?
Yes! As far as we are concerned they are.
The British call them trainers, because they can be used for sports or training.
The Americans call them sneakers, presumably because, being soft-soled, they're suitable for sneaking around in!
But to confuse things further, they are also called tennis shoes in the US.
What are vegan sandals made of?
Vegan sandals are made without the use of any animal materials, such as leather, suede, fur or wool.

In addition, some vegan sandals are also made from recycled materials, such as recycled polyester or other recycled fibres.
Are vegan sandals durable?
Many vegan sandals now are made using high quality and durable materials, and many of the new vegan leathers are of very high quality. But you can make your vegan sandals last longer by taking care of them well. With proper care, vegan sandals can last for many years, depending on how much wear and tear they encounter, which is the same as their animal-leather counterparts.
Are vegan sandals better for the environment?
Vegan materials tend to have a much lower carbon footprint and be much be kinder to the environment than animal leather, which is one of the most environmentally damaging materials used in fashion. Whilst there are vegan materials such as PVC which are toxic and harmful, none of the vegan sandals or products at Immaculate Vegan contain PVC. We also choose to partner with brands who are creating the most sustainable vegan sandals possible, using the most sustainable vegan materials.
