Sustainability Practices

House of Fraser only sells very few products made from organic materials such as organic cotton and hemp or recycled materials such as recycled cotton, recycled polyester, and regenerated nylon.

Most of its products are either made from natural materials without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton or linen, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.

House of Fraser also offers some products made from semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as Tencel lyocell, modal, acetate, and viscose.

Tencel is an eco-friendly fiber made with wood pulp from certified sustainable forests. But only very few House of Fraser's products are environmentally friendly and sustainable.

The 2022 Fashion Transparency Index gave the Frasers Group a score of only 6% based on how much the group discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.

House of Fraser doesn't sell products made from exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But many of its collections use leather, wool, silk, and down feathers.

These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.
