Sustainability is very important to us. We aim to constantly challenge and improve the way we work. From how we design to the way we produce and collaborate, down to the final products in your wardrobe. We’re not perfect just yet, but would love to share some of the progress we’re making behind the scenes : All our pieces are made with existing stock fabric, helping to cut down emissions. From each dress that is made, we have utilised the left-over fabric into making scarves & scrunchies to minimise wastage. Our designs are produced in Europe which travel to us by low emission trucks. We believe in creating investment pieces & by creating a limited quantity of each style means there are no wasted samples sitting boxed up and unloved. At Leol we aren’t creating throw-away fashion, but timeless pieces that you can wear & enjoy for years. Buy less, choose well, make it last.
Leol dresses are designed in London & produced in a small atelier factory in Europe, which has been running for more than 20 years. We love supporting this family run business which is an all-female team of 18 women & every item bought at Leol goes towards supporting these women. This tight-knit team of skilful tailors are like a family & are passionate about creating beautiful clothes for you.
The self sealing compostable poly mailer is made up of film that has been accredited to be ‘OK biobased’. It is produced out of annually renewable PLA derived from plant starches (corn / potato etc) and is fully biodegradable and compostable, breaking down to CO2 and H2O. The biodegradable poly mailer bag is produced using resin. Resin is a viscous or solid substance of plant and is usually made up of natural organic compounds. Each garment is wrapped in recycled tissue paper and each order is packed inside reusable organic cotton bags which are great for travelling or simply storing your dress. Taking good care of your Leol garments will extend their lifespan significantly. The result? Gorgeous pieces you can wear for years to come and less environmental waste.
