What Makes Celia Grace Wedding Dresses Eco Friendly?

Celia Grace is continually working to reduce its environmental impact. Here's how:

Fabric Sourcing:

  • Celia Grace sources fabrics as close to our production sites as possible to minimize the carbon footprint from shipping
  • Heirloom Eco Silks are hand woven in Cambodia and then sewn into dresses there
  • We use natural fiber fabrics--rather than polyester--whenever possible

Eco Silks: Light-As-Air, Luscious, low-impact fabrics

  • Mulberry trees grown without pesticides
  • Silk worms raised without antibiotics
  • Woven on traditional wooden looms that do not use electricity
  • Only safe, non-toxic German dyes used
  • Minimal water used in production 

Business Practices. US-based sustainable practices include:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Using only recycled paper
  • Recycling paper, ink, & more
  • Using public transportation whenever possible

Product Life Cycle

  • Celia Grace web site provides supports brides with donating or up-cycling a wedding gown after the wedding
  • 2017 Collection includes several  “lifelong” or convertible styles that we hope you will wear again after your wedding day.
  • Eco Silk Life Cycle Analysis completed. Upstream & downstream analysis completed & actions taken.
