Orchard Moon is a sustainable luxury pyjama and resort wear brand based in London, England, providing conscious consumers with vegan silk pyjamas and resort wear. Orchard Moon’s offerings have graced the pages of leading fashion publications including Grazia, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Conde Nast Traveller, and Cosmopolitan to name a few, and include women’s luxury pyjama sets and separates, as well as an array of beautiful sleep masks and scrunchies.
Ethical production is at the crux of Orchard Moon’s processes. The garments are ethically-made in established and respected Bulgarian factories and ateliers where the employees are paid a fair wage and are not forced to work overtime.
Orchard Moon uses sustainable materials to bring their exquisite luxury pyjamas and resort wear to life, choosing to utilise cellulose-based fabrics derived from nature. Tencel and Lyocell are Orchard Moon’s main materials of choice, and each is made using wood pulp from FCS (Forest Stewardship Council) managed woodlands in Europe. These materials are responsibly-sourced, and every effort is made to source them locally so as to minimise the company’s own transportation footprint.
The engraved buttons featured on the Orchard Moon products are made of natural corozo – also known as vegan ivory – which is an incredibly durable, completely eco-friendly material. Rather than opt for conventional synthetic elastic, Orchard Moon uses 100% natural elastic crafted entirely from organic cotton and natural rubber, which will biodegrade over time.
With an exquisite variety of colourful and printed women’s vegan silk pyjamas, as well as an obvious inherent commitment to environmentally and socially responsible production, Orchard Moon is well and truly proving that ethical and sustainable garments don’t have to be boring.

The fabrics we use are all cellulose based, derived from nature. Tencel and Lyocell filament are made using wood from FSC sustainably managed woodlands in Europe. We responsibly source all our fabrics, trims and packaging as locally as possible to minimise the impact that transportation has on the carbon footprint of our garments.
We believe that everyone should be paid a fair wage and treated with kindness and respect. We only work with suppliers whose employees are paid a fair wage and are not forced to work excessive hours or unpaid overtime. Our garments are made in well established and respected small factories and ateliers in Bulgaria which are visited several times a year.
Our products are entirely cellulose based so can be easily recycled into regenerated cellulose at the end of their lifecycle. We have a minimal waste policy where lay plans are carefully designed to minimise fabric waste on the cutting table, and where possible leftover pieces of fabric are made into accessories. We have plans to partner with a cellulose recycling company to introduce a take back scheme in the future.
We are a climate positive brand - we support reforestation projects worldwide by partnering with 'On A Mission'. We calculate our carbon emissions for our entire supply chain and offset it by planting trees. We also work with local charities to support victims of domestic violence and homelessness.
We only work with certified suppliers throughout our supply chain and the vast majority of the source materials we use originate from within Europe. Our fabric mill is ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System compliant and carries FSC, OEKO-TE X 100 and Zero Waste certificates. They use 100% green energy and are committed to reducing the impact on the environment of water, energy and chemical consumption. They are currently implementing the ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management System.
