Sustainability

 

Creativity and sustainability sit equally in our brand philosophy.

Through our very own experiences working with large luxury brands that we recognised the flaws of traditional fashion industry model and we aim to find a better way for the future.

At L’ETE FEMME, we are passionate about building a brand that delivers the most beautiful clothes at an honest price, empowers everyone in the supply chain and ensures every aspect of our business is gentle on our beautiful planet.

 

TIMELESS DESIGN

Longevity is at the heart of our design philosophy. We take a slow and considered approach to create timeless and versatile designs that can be worn time after time. We believe no matter what you do in other aspects of the business, it is not sustainable if the design cannot stand the test of time. This is our starting point to a more sustainable fashion.

 

CONSIDERED FABRICS

We are committed to only use natural, bio-degradable fabrics in our collections and never use synthetics that have profound effects on the planet’s land-fill levels and oceans. Where possible these are fabrics certified through the Oeko-tex Standard 100 and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

 

SMALL PRODUCTION

All of our garments are exclusively made in an in-house studio rather than a big factory. It not only allows us to produce to demand leaving less risk of overproduction and wastes in landfill, but also helps us to build meaningful relationships with all the artisans we work with. We personally know the names of their family, their favourite movie and their passion. We strive to create bonds that lead to mutual progress and empowerment.

 

SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING

We use 100% compostable satchels for all online orders. Each order is carefully packaged in an organic cotton drawstring bag that can be reused. We avoid excess inner packaging such as tissue paper and boxes in the aid of reducing landfill.

 

CARBON NEUTRAL SHIPPING

All orders are shipped with Carbon Neutral Delivery services.
