Founded in 2014, Sancho’s is the UK's leading ethical fashion retailer carrying brands that produce their garments ethically.

Why I started my business

I started Sancho's to bring consumers closer to the people who make their clothes and help them be the change through their wardrobe.

About me

I’m a social entrepreneur who works to deliver scaling businesses that are environmentally sound and socially inclusive. In a world facing failures of leaderships, systematic racism and climate crisis, I’m passionate about and advocate for intersectional environmentalism, anti-racism and effective social leadership.

My biggest achievement in business

Winning the Holly & Co High Street Shop Of The Year in 2020

Challenges I’ve faced in business and how I’ve overcome these

'Starting a business with only a student overdraft, overcome through lots of hard work over five years'

Advice I’d give to someone currently starting or growing a business

Build an audience by adding value and they will support you with all that you need.
