At LISSOME, we work with innovative brands who share our values and produce with integrity and care. In our brand and product choices, we look for a combination of the following elements - sustainable and healthy materials, fair working conditions, eco-friendly production processes, high-quality and local manufacturing, pre-loved and vintage items, and craftsmanship and handmade goods. When we take on new brands, we meet the designers either in person (if possible) or via Skype, inform ourselves about how and where they manufacture and engage with their ethos and business.
The fashion industry is known for its opaque supply chains where little information is made available to the customer at the moment of purchase, both online and offline. We believe that transparency is key to improving the industry and for all of us to make informed choices. We aim to give you easily accessible information so that you can make purchases that are aligned with what matters most to you.
With the consultancy of A Transparent Company, we have defined the sustainability guidelines that inform our brand and product selection, and have designed a set of sustainability icons to assist you in navigating through the complex fashion landscape:
Use of low impact and low chemical processing and methods, natural dyes and
minimal waste manufacturing techniques.
Guaranteed living wages, safe working conditions, voluntary overtime
and freedom to unionise.
Protection and support of the traditional skills and/or the ancient heritage
of artisanal communities.
Support of independent, local businesses and strong, personal relationships
between designers and local manufacturers.
Use of organic, recycled or eco-innovative fibres that are healthy for
the environment and our own skin.
No animals are part of the product nor were used/harmed in
the process of the making.
