F.A.Q.

What does Sanctus mean?

Sanctus is a latin word that means ‘saintly’ or ‘holy’

What is the 'Church of Sanctus'

I (Lucinda) intend to make pieces that enable and empower you to truly embody your divinity. I try to make pieces that reflect your inner greatness!

Where can I buy?

Due to the limited nature of the garments, Sanctus is not suitable for wholesale and the only place you can buy Sanctus pieces are right here on the Church of Sanctus website. Occassionally we do events & pop-ups where you can buy pieces directly from us – keep an eye on the Sanctus instagram for any news.

Can I borrow samples for a shoot?

Stylists and photographers, email contact@churchofsanctus.com for loan inquiries.

How long until my item ships?

We hand make all pieces to order in our London studio, lead times are typically around 3 weeks. However we’re currently transitioning into all ready made stock, so soon it will be only a matter of days until your order ships!

Will you ship to my country?

We ship worldwide! Standard shipping is free, with the option to pay extra for expedited.

Do you do free shipping/sales/discounts?

Keep an eye on our instagram and facebook for news on our next sample sale, we have them a couple of times a year and they include items worn for photoshoots and one of a kind pieces at a discount. We offer standard free shipping worldwide, just tick the box at checkout.

Where is Church of Sanctus based?

Our studio is in East London, Hackney.

Why do your garments cost £XXX amount?

Every Sanctus garment is designed, cut, sewn, pressed and packaged by myself (Lucinda) and my 2 seamstresses in our London studio.

High street stores make thousands of garments manufactured at a very low cost overseas, often via underpaid workers in huge factories. Our prices reflect how much it costs to ethically produce clothing from start to finish in the UK, in high quality fabrics with great attention to detail.

Why are Sanctus pieces limited to small runs?

I often make my designs out of deadstock fabric, meaning there’s only a limited amount of it and can’t be repurchased. I think making designs in smalls runs instills a preciousness in the clothing, as a response to mass produced garments you find on the highstreet.

When will X item be back in stock? If it's sold out can you make me one as a custom order?

Due to the limited nature of our garments, once a design is sold out we won’t be restocking again. However we occasionally ‘resurrect’ past designs and rework them into something new.

Do you take custom orders?

I’m not currently taking on any custom orders, however I can make any of my made-to-order designs to any measurements. You just have to purchase the ‘made to measure add-on’ which you can find here.
