Devoted to Style.
Dedicated to Sustainability.

At FatFace, we believe style and sustainability should go hand in hand. We launched our first sustainability strategy back in 2008 and our journey continues today.

Our Manifesto

We’re committed to doing better, and we promise to make the best choices for our product, our planet, and our community.

We will continue to work closely with our supply chain on people and planet issues.

We will continue to look at ways we can design product to be less impactful, and that will use more responsible materials.

We will work with honesty, integrity and passion to be a retailer and brand that is kinder to our planet and its people.
