CF's April 2024 Sustainable Edit

Welcome to Citizen Femme’s April 2024 Sustainable Edit, showcasing the sustainable collectives on our radar this month.

Including heirloom jewellery, a rigorously-vetted hotel, and farm-to-table food, these are the names making a positive change this April.



Sustainable fine-jewellery brand MATILDE combines heirloom-worthy values with a modern design aesthetic. Founder, Matilde Mourinho, wanted her jewellery to impart the same loving sensation she feels around those closest to her; creating a personal talisman of a moment in time, a place, or of a person. Breaking from the traditional jewellery industry’s often terrible social and environmental effects, her vision was beautiful, sentimental pieces of jewellery, brought to life with a sustainable ethos. Transparency is part of Matilde’s mission, demonstrated through honest communication and fair prices, with sustainability at the forefront – right down to the materials sourced and the working conditions of artisans. The result? Stunning recycled 14kt gold and lab grown diamond jewellery that’s proud to be a conscious heirloom.



L’Occitane does eco-friendliness with a luxurious flair, offering products you actually want to show off to your friends, while standing firm on sustainable principles such as respecting biodiversity, supporting producers and using certified natural ingredients. From the eco-refills for its moisture-locking Almond Shower Oil (our fashion editor’s favourite for over 10 years) to the fully traceable supply chain of the iconic Shea Butter Hand Cream, the company’s Clean Charter means the brand never compromises when it comes to respecting both the environment and your skin. – Becki Murray


Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort

This luxury resort between Provence and the French Riviera has been recognised by The Leading Hotels of the World as a Sustainability Leader; a prestigious collection of just 50 hotels that have been rigorously vetted and meet the highest standards of cultural, social, and environmental sustainability. Committed to conscious practices through a sustainable management plan, Terre Blanche pride themselves on responsible and renewable energy consumption, empowering economic growth through education programmes and celebrating the local history of the destination. Guests at the resort also have access to exclusive experiences, where they can discover the local and cultural heritage of Le Pays de Fayence through activities such as the cultivation of perfume plants.


Dora Larsen

Established in 2016 as a solution to the frustration of wearing uncomfortable and uninspiring bras, Georgia Larsen’s colourful and contemporary lingerie brand has become a household name amongst lingerie lovers. This spring she’s made a natural progression into swimwear, with a debut collection of eight pieces inspired by the brands best-selling styles in vibrant signature hues. With a commitment to sustainability, each piece is designed and produced in the UK in limited quantities, and the swimwear is made from a premium Italian material with a textured towelling-effect, derived from ECONYL® – a material made from 100 per cent regenerated nylon yarn, sourced from our oceans. Sizing ranges from UK6 to UK16 and cup size A to E.


Crispin at Studio Voltaire 

Londoners will be familiar with Crispin in Spitalfields, Bar Crispin and Bistro Freddie from HAM Restaurants, a collection of eateries focusing on locally-sourced ingredients, and supporting independent growers and small-scale farms and producers. The latest from the collective is Crispin at Studio Voltaire located inside Clapham’s Studio Voltaire, a leading non-profit gallery and arts organisation. The ethos remains the same here, focusing on small and predominantly independent farmers, while supporting artists that inhabit the building and the local community in South London through collaborative initiatives. Crispin’s seasonal, nourishing food is a stand-out amongst the London dining scene.
