Based in Brighton, ILK + ERNIE is an ethical, female-led brand. Founded as as celebration of sisterhood, we wanted to launch a label that was not only cool and vibrant but encouraged women to shop ethically and affordably too. This ethos is the driving force behind everything that we do.
For generations of women that live in a society that want to pit women against each other, we see it as our job to resist that tyranny. We are for spirited, free thinking females. Our collections are there to empower you, to ignite your confidence of self and to bring as many beautiful female souls together as possible.
Sisterhood to us means unity. We want that ethos to spread to everything we do and that means being socially responsible to the ever precious environment we all live in. All of our collections are ethically made by a courageous team of talented men and women in Deli, India. They receive all of the amazing treatment that a lot of us take for granted: fair wages, holiday pay, health insurance, safe working environments and EU standard working hours. What's more, they are given money towards putting their children through school, a continuous problem that India still heavily faces today.
We are so proud to be part of the ever growing ethical community, long may we see it continue!
