About

We are passionate about fashion, Yoga, our planet and its people.

We are Stella and Hami, husband and wife and business partners, living in the beautiful city of London. Stella has a BA in fashion design and Hami has a background in interior design and so it was always clear to us that we want to create beautiful things. But not only that, we also felt the urge to do something purposeful in our lives. Stella's love for Yoga and knowledge of garment making and textiles plus Hami's eye for design and exciting colour combinations inspired the birth of Cucur - Ethical Clothing, a brand for ethically made, unique Yoga clothing and accessories.

We are enthusiastic about fashion, Yoga, our planet and its people. That is why we make the combination of unique designs, comfort and eco-friendly, ethically made materials our priority. We use fabrics made of organic cotton and bamboo. They are produced in GOTS certified mills in India, Turkey and the UK. This doesn't only ensure a low impact on our planet, it also means the farmers and workers are in a safe environment and are paid appropriately.

We design and manufacture all our Yoga clothing ourselves. After sewing we hand dye each piece, using dyes that are known as low-impact and are classified by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 as eco-friendly. We prefer those to vegetable dyes, because in order to offer a range of vibrant colours while being conscious of the environment. We enjoy experimenting with natural dyes, but believe that they are not as sustainable on a larger scale, because the use of chemical mordants would be necessary to fix the colours. Please visit our website at www.cucur.co.uk to find out more about which materials and dyes we use and why.

We want to give something back to Mother Nature, that's why 5% of all proceeds goes to Greenpeace UK.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and our process. Please let us know anytime if you have any questions.

Frequently asked questions
When will my order ship?

The time we need to create your order varies from item to item. Most items take 3 to 5 days to be made. Please see individual listings for the exact turnaround time. All parcels are sent through Royal Mail.

Can I return or exchange my order?

Yes, we gladly accept returns and exchanges. Just let us know of your intention to return or exchange within 14 days after receiving your order and send it back to us within 30 days. Once we receive it we will issue a refund or send out your new item. As our clothing is made to order this might take up to 7 days.
We offer free returns within the UK, so please keep your shipping receipt and we will refund you the postage costs.
International customers: We do not cover return postage, but in case of an exchange the second shipping is on us.

Do you use natural dyes?

No, we use synthetic low-impact dyes. They are classified by the Oeko-Tex 100 as eco-friendly. The main reasons are, that we want vibrant, lasting colours for our customers to choose from, while being mindful of the environment.
While we love natural dyes and believe they're fun to work with, in order to fix them so they won't run, we would need to use chemical mordants, that can be harmful for our planet if used on a large scale. If you would like to find out more about why we use low-impact dyes, please see our blog post at: http://www.cucur.co.uk/blog/natural-vs-fibre-reactive-dyes-and-why-we-use-fibre-reactive-dyes

Do the colours of your clothing run when washed?

We first sew your garment and hand-dye it afterwards. As a matter of caution we recommend hand-washing your clothes the first few times separately, because they still might contain residue of dye. But do not worry; the colour of your garment will last, because low-impact dyes have a high absorption rate and do not run once the residue is washed out. After one or two hand washes you can wash them in the machine with similar colours.

Do you use eco-friendly materials?

Yes, we use materials such as organic cotton, bamboo and linen. Some of them are blended with a small percentage of lycra or elastane (5 to 8%) in order for the clothing to be snug fitting.
The organic growing of cotton is significantly less harmful for the environment than the conventional method.
​Bamboo and linen are sustainable materials, that make wonderful fabric without having a big impact on the environment.

Is the cotton you use GOTS certified?

Yes, the cotton fabric we use is made of GOTS certified yarn in GOTS certified mills in India and Turkey.

Is your clothing Fairtrade?

Yes, meaning that everyone involved in the production gets paid a fair wage. The company we order our fabric from is ​quite small, which is why they don't hold a FTF (Fairtrade foundation) certificate. However as their fabric is produced in GOTS certified mills, the appropriate working conditions for the staff are ensured and the yarn they use is certified fair trade. The reason they do what they do is to support people by making sure they receive a fair wage for their work.
