Certified B Corporations have a triple bottom line of purpose, people and profit. This is embedded into the laws of our corporation, meaning we equally consider our impact on our employees and production partners, customers, community and the environment.
Poppy Barley exclusively works with factory partners who meet our standards for ethical production. We build long-term, direct relationships with our partners to work towards common environmental and people goals while providing consistent work. We re-certify our factories every two years to ensure they continue to meet our ethical standards.

Inspired by our community of incredible women, we’re empowering girls for a better future. The Future Fund will raise $100,000 over three years to support initiatives and organizations that empower and build the confidence of girls and non-binary youth.
All leathers used by Poppy Barley are a by-product of food production and a natural alternative to fossil fuel synthetics.
We source our leather from tanneries that are personally vetted or certified by the Leather Working Group (LWG), an international not-for-profit that audits tanneries for environmental and social performance.
The average LWG-accredited tannery saves 12.1 billion litres of water and 775 megawatts of energy per year.
While no material is perfect, we believe leather has enough advantages—long-lasting, repairable and quicker to biodegrade than plastic alternatives—to make it a good choice for the present.
Committed to exploring vegan alternatives, Poppy Barley’s PB PLNT accessories are made with Desserto®, a cactus-based leather.
Sourced in Mexico, Desserto® is sustainably made by harvesting cactus leaves. This process is done with minimal environmental impact, as cacti require no irrigation or chemicals for growth. By only harvesting their leaves, cacti are left unharmed and can be harvested repeatedly. Desserto®’s cacti promote soil enrichment and biodiversity in the region.
Desserto® is certified 65% biobased by the USDA and is a USDA BioPreferred Program® Champion.
Poppy Barley’s ReSpun knitwear is made using high-quality recycled textiles.
Pre-loved fabrics are broken down and regenerated into usable fibres, which are then turned into fabric—giving them a second life.
All recycled fabrics used by Poppy Barley are classified as high-quality, ensuring our luxury standards are maintained.
Feel-good footwear in medium and wide widths.
We skip the luxury markups to offer fair prices on high-quality products.
Ethically made in audited factories with planet-conscious materials.

Sizing Note: For the most accurate fit, measure around your body where you plan to wear the belt. Choose the closest belt size to that measurement.
The Accent Belt, The Polished Belt and The Complement Belt size measurements start from the beginning of the leather to the middle hole.
The Infinite Belt size measurements cover the entire length of the leather.
If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline,
wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your
midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.
If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline,
you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of
bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring
tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.
When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The
belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.
If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:
