GUEST POST - York-Based Glory Days Bridal Introduces The New Eco-Friendly And Ethical Rolling In Roses Collection, Sappho

20th January 2020


At Glory Days we sell the complete Rolling In Roses collections which are made here in York from ethical and eco-friendly fabrics, and we also offer a bespoke service so brides can have their dream dress made from scratch and choose their fabrics, so if they have special requests (a fully vegan wedding dress for example), we can provide a made-to-measure dress from their individual measurements. We then have a large collection of original vintage wedding dresses which of course are the most eco-friendly option of all! 

Paying special attention to the eco-friendly and ethical materials used in their construction, we introduce the latest offerings from Rolling In Roses; the 20-piece Sappho Collection comprises of 8 dresses, 4 skirts, 5 tops, a pair of trousers, a jumpsuit, and a veil!

Glory Days Bridal Introduces The New Eco-Friendly And Ethical Rolling In Roses Collection, Sappho - Daughters DressThe Daughters Dress is made from ethereally soft organic silk chiffon overlaid onto an eco-friendly satin made from rose petal fibre.

The lace trim used to decorate the bodice and cuffs is made the traditional way on century-old Leavers lace machines in Nottingham by a ninth-generation family of lacemakers. Lined with a breathable silk-bamboo blend charmeuse to keep you cool and comfortable.
