Spa Members: Cucumber Clothing Pop Up Shop
21 June, 2019 - 21 June, 2019 / Spa Members
Discover Cucumber's sustainable loungewear that uses cutting edge technology to help maintain an even body temperature.
Founded by Nancy Zeffman and ex-Nicole Farhi, Eileen Willett, Cucumber Clothing is an innovative, solution-based fashion brand specialising in beautiful nightwear and loungewear.
All its pieces are made from luxuriously soft, cutting-edge, quick-dry fabrics that wick away moisture at speed to keep the wearer looking and feeling cool. Cucumber’s quick-dry, performance fabrics require minimal care and are ideal for holidays, hot days and busy lives. They do not retain sweat and odours and therefore do not need regular washing; they can be easily rinsed in a hotel basin and hung to dry.
Sustainability and slow fashion are at the heart of what Cucumber does. All of Cucumber’s fabrics last up to six times longer than cotton, meaning longer wear and less waste. Their anti-crease technology means that they require little or no ironing, and they are hang-dry, helping to reduce energy consumption.
Cucumber produces small runs, with a view to limiting fabric waste and avoiding ending up with dead stock fabric. All pieces are graded, sampled and manufactured locally in London: this means low transport emissions and easy access to ensure that factory standards are upheld. All labels and trims are sourced within the UK, which not only helps the local economy but again ensures that fewer air miles are used in creating the product. From June, this small company will have eliminated all plastics that are not 100% biodegradable from its supply chain, and it will be using only recycled tissue paper and tape when sending out its orders.
Discover Cucumber Clothing at Sequoia spa this June at their Pop Up Shop, which will be open from 9am – 5pm. Exclusive spa member discounts will be available.
There will also be three Q&A sessions at 10am, 12pm and 3pm – simply pop in to the Juice Bar and chat with the brand founders, complete with a complimentary G&T.
