"Beaumont Organic is a sustainable ready-to-wear brand that offers clothing and accessories for women, as well as home decor items.

Their collection of chic clutch bags is extensive with many colors, styles and sizes available. Many of the clutch bags have thoughtful details like leather tassels and double zips. All of the clutch bags are lined in organic cotton and come with a Beaumont Organic dust bag for safe storage. Pair the clutch bags with any of Beaumont Organic’s organic cotton dresses, all of which are currently discounted during their mid-season sale.
Founded by Hannah Beaumont-Laurencia, the company operates with a philosophy of ethical luxury. All Beaumont Organic pieces are made in a small, family-run factory near Porto, Portugal, that ensures fair wages, normal work hours and minimum working ages. The company believes in quality over quantity, so the seasonal collections are kept small and made in limited numbers. They also use sustainable textiles and organic cotton is the brand’s preferred fabric. Organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides and it’s never grown from genetically modified seeds. Growing organic cotton ensures the biodiversity of seeds and wildlife, preserves the integrity of the soil, and protects the livelihoods of cotton farmers. Beaumont Organic also provides philanthropic support through the Beaumont Organic Foundation, whereby the company donates 1% of its annual profits to the Niusawa School in Taveuni, Fiji. The Foundation provides essential supplies to the students at the school such as pens, pencils, pads, sporting equipment and toys.
Beaumont-Laurencia is a former teacher at the school, and during her tenure she noticed that the poverty-stricken institution was often lacking in critical learning supplies. After launching Beaumont Organic, she decided to create the Foundation to help the Niusawa students reach their full potential. Purchase Beaumont Organic exclusively from their online boutique."
