A Story of Sustainability

Celebrating Heritage Fashion

Reclaiming Beautiful Details


‘Waste is a design flaw’

Ellen Macarthur Foundation

At cate-brown we seek to show how recycled can be beautiful and without compromising luxury. We also aim to raise awareness of the damage to the planet from textile waste caused by our fast-fashion, throw-away culture and to inform and encourage people to buy better, repurpose and extend the life of their fashion.


We have a love of beautiful interiors and quality designed objects combined with an awareness of our planet’s finite resources. Our goal is to create for the better and be an advocate for a circular economy without compromising style and luxury.

In our ongoing efforts to reduce our environmental footprint, we have made an eco-conscious decision to no longer ship inserts with our sustainable luxury cushion covers. This environmentally friendly approach allows us to minimize packaging materials, reduce transportation emissions, and promote an even more eco-conscious brand ethos. We encourage you to consider reusing or repurposing existing inserts you may have or explore sustainable alternatives available locally. This only applies to online purchases and the new reduced website pricing is reflective. If you are shopping at one of our brick-and-mortar retail partners, they sell our cushions with their locally sourced inserts. Thank you for joining us on our mission towards a greener and more mindful future.
