Our Vision

Slow Fashion and supporting British manufacturing lies at the heart of Essential Noir.

Our vision is to create beautiful high quality women’s black clothing and to offer something better – Fashion Made to Last – where the colour does not fade, the seams do not twist and the fabric does not pill or look old and worn after a few washes.

We do not produce fast fashion but timeless quality Fashion Essentials made in Britain

Our Fashion Essentials collection is designed to give you great quality wardrobe staples – items every woman needs in their lives.

Our core product is the perfect black top crafted in the UK from beautifully soft, durable and ecological Micro Modal fabric knitted and dyed in Leicestershire. This fabric has been carefully selected for its quality and ability to retain its shape and colour as well as ease of care.

As an addition to the Fashion Essentials collection our Limited Edition collection offers The Unique pieces for your wardrobe – Small runs of Exclusive Designs crafted from carefully selected fabrics – often also using end of roll or limited availability fabrics.

Simple – Timeless – Classic – Modern – the principles Essential Noir was born from to support British manufacturing and the slow fashion movement giving you great quality fashion – items that will become your wardrobe favourites to accompany you for years to come.

All Essential Noir designs are manufactured in the UK using British made fabrics wherever possible.

We hope that you love our products as much as we do and will return for more as our collection grows.

How Ethical Is Modal? ... Did You know that Essential Noir Fashion Essentials tops are made from the environmentally friendly Lenzing Modal® - and knitted and dyed into the beautifully soft and durable micro modal fabric in Leicestershire? ... But be aware, modal may not always be as green or ethical as the Lenzing Modal® is. ... "Modal fibre is the generic name for a semi-synthetic rayon, which was originally developed in Japan in 1951. Today one of the best-known producers of modal is the Austrian company Lenzing AG, who market their version under the name Lenzing Modal®. Lenzing Modal is protected by a global certification system which is registered worldwide. ... How does modal impact the environment? It depends. Lenzing has developed innovative environmental processes for the manufacture of Lenzing Modal which are not commercially available to others. These non-toxic technologies have allowed Lenzing to recover up to 95% of Modal’s production materials, minimising emissions and conserving resources. ... The environmental footprint of Lenzing Modal is a positive one – it’s carbon-neutral, requires less land per tonne than cotton fibres and has a water consumption level that’s ten to twenty times less than that of cotton. ... Whilst the trademarked Lenzing Modal is harvested from sustainably managed beech tree plantations in Austria and surrounding European countries, the origins of other modal fibres on the market are often less transparent. For example, less reputable manufacturers have been accused by the Rainforest Action Network of forest destruction in Indonesia. Modal garments manufactured in China are often made with Indonesian modal. ... It is important to consider both the fibre and the weaving, cutting and transportation process when thinking about the sustainability of a fabric." ...
