Our commitment is simple: to create ethically sourced clothing of the highest quality.
Timeless fashion. Organic, sustainable, and ethically sourced fabrics.
The value of our clothing cannot be quantified only by our high-quality materials, but also by the fact that we source only ethically created clothing: recognizing and supporting the human beings whose hands create the clothing that we wear.
We work in communion with nature. On the canvas of our clothing, we see the expression of nature’s power and beauty.
Wearing clothing shouldn’t cause bad odors or keep our skin from breathing—but often that’s exactly what they do. We want to transform your relationship with clothing. To make it become what it really is: your second skin. In choosing to wear high-quality clothing, you aren’t choosing to become associated just with an image.
Behind the label is a vision, values, a goal: to exceed expectations. Whether it’s the quality of the end result or the care taken along the journey, it all counts. And in this conversation, each woman has her say.
In order to be GOTS and FairTrade certified, our supplier is required to conform to the strictest regulations. They source cotton that is cultivated in permaculture by groups of farmers who own their own small farms. Each farmer receives fair compensation for their work. Each farmer cares for the land that they own.
This ethically-sourced cotton is then transported to small workshops in Lima, Peru, where well-paid workers create lovely products with care and attention. Through these workshops, we provide local Peruvians with stable income and meaningful work.
We are proud to have created a production chain based in Peru, the native country of this beautiful organic cotton. The Peruvians who work for Laumara feel proud to share a little of their home country with the world.
