ConsciousElegance's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Conscious Elegance!

We're happy to share our sustainable fabric with fellow DIY'ers, crafters and designers, or discuss a custom-made eco wedding dress for folks who'd rather let us do the sewing!

We've been creating handmade eco-friendly wedding dresses officially since 2007 (and unofficially for much longer than that). During our adventures, we've been asked if we would share our fabulous fabrics. Result? We've been providing brides and mums and fashion students and crafters with gorgeous sustainable fabric for years.

Lead-time for orders:
1-2 days for in-stock fabric and ready-made dresses
2-4 weeks for fabric specially ordered in
4-6 weeks for custom made to order items which use in-stock fabric
6-10 weeks for custom gowns where fabrics need to be sourced (such as vintage silk)

You can expect to hear a confirmation of your order within 24 hours and usually much quicker than that.

We are currently accepting rush orders for custom wedding dresses; please contact us with your wedding date for more information. Our average lead times usually increase to 2-3 months beginning in January.

Our gowns are made entirely by hand; as a result we can usually accommodate requests for design changes. Email us for details.

Our business is green down to our toes:

*We were awarded 'Green Business of the Year' by the North Tyneside Council's Environmental Agency

* We're longtime members of Green America, which is a national-not-for-profit organization that requires businesses to submit to a stringent application and vetting process, to help highlight the true eco businesses and separate them from the green-washers.

*We were spotlighted recently by, which highlights small businesses and tells their story with the hope of inspiring other entrepreneurs.

We're active in local eco-action groups and we educate the community about sustainable fabrics and by donating our scrap fabric to local schools to foster their creativity.

Our dresses and accessories are created in the USA by local artists who are paid a fair living wage and a percentage of our profits is donated annually to environmental causes.
