FASHION CAN BE A DIRTY BASTARD, SO WE ARE HERE FOR A POSITIVE CHANGE. AND WE ARE NOT WILLING TO COMPROMISE ON EARTHS ETHICS, SO TRUST US WHEN WE SAY THAT NO ONE IS TOO SMALL TO MAKE A CHANGE. 

SO EVEN WHILE WE ARE STILL A SMALL BUSINESS, WE ARE PARTICIPATING AND MAKING ALL SUPPLY CHAIN GREEN, PRODUCING IN AN ETHICAL WAY AND RAISING UNIVERSAL STANDARDS - DESIGNING FOR DURABILITY AND QUALITY. BEING NOT JUST A FASHION BRAND BUT SUSTAINABLE FASHION BRAND.

  • QUALITY CLOTHING- WE ARE ALL FOR INCREASED PRODUCT LIFE AND WE WANT YOUR PIECE FROM Le SLAP TO KIND OF BECOME YOUR LONG TIME BUDDY. SO, WE USE THREE TIMES MORE THREADS WHEN SEWING (TO MAKE IT MORE DURABLE) COMPARING TO HIGH STREET RETAILERS LIKE ZARA OR H&M, WE PICK HIGH QUALITY FABRICS AND PERSONALLY TEST EVERY SINGLE PIECE BEFORE IT GOES TO PRODUCTION. SO, YES, THINK OF US LIKE THAT FRIEND YOU FOUND AT UNIVERSITY AND KEEP HIM FOR YEARS AND YEARS.

  • Le SLAP LIFETIME LINE- WE HAVE ALSO CREATED A Le SLAP LIFETIME LINE, WHICH PIECES WILL NEVER GET OLD IN TERMS OF DESIGN, IT’S A CLASSIC, JUST LIKE “PRIDE AND PREJUDICE”, PIZZA MARGHARETA AND “BRIDGET’S DIARY”, IT IS BONAFIDE CLASSIC, SO CAN STAY IN OUR WARDROBES FOREVER AND MAKE GREAT STAPLE PIECES.
  • WE HAND PICK, TOUCH AND FEEL EVERY CUT OF TEXTILE OR A PIECE OF LEATHER. SLIGHT PERFECTIONISTS HERE, WE ONLY ACCEPT HIGHEST STANDARDS, WHICH RESULTS FROM QUALIFIED AND CERTIFIED SUPPLIERS, AND ALLOWS CUSTOMERS TO STAY IN HARMONY WITH THEIR CLOTHES. FOR COTTON, WE MAINLY USE ORGANIC ONE FROM TRUSTED EDENTEX®. FOR DENIM, WE SPENT DAYS IN DENIM’S GURU STUDIO WHO RECOMMENDED US THE BEST DENIM SUPPLIER IN EUROPE. CANNOT DISCLOSE THE NAME, AS IT WAS TOLD AS A TOP SECRET. FOR FUR, WE ONLY USE EUROPEAN FARMS, WHICH ARE CERTIFIED BY FINNISH STANDARDS AND HAVE SAGAFURS® CERTIFICATE. ANIMALS THERE LIVE AS GOOD AS KOBE BEEF COWS. FOR LEATHER, WE MAINLY USE HARMLESS VEGAN LEATHERS. AND FOR OTHER FABRICS, WE CHOOSE THE ONES WHICH CAN BE RECYCLED OR UPCYCLED LATER ON.

 

  • FAIR TRADE- ALL OF OUR GARMENTS ARE MADE BY WELL PAID PROFESSIONALS IN NORTHERN EUROPE THROUGH CORPORATE TRANSPARENT PROCESSES. FREE OF CHILD AND FORCED LABOUR, WE PERSONALLY KNOW EVERY PERSON WHO WORKS FOR US AND WE BELIEVE THAT THAT'S THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE TREATED WITH RESPECT AT ALL TIMES. 

  • REDUCED CARBON EMISSIONS- WE ARE REDUCING ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT EVERY DAY BY PRODUCING LOCALLY WHICH MEANS REDUCED SHIPPING WHICH = REDUCED CARBON EMISSIONS. WE ALSO LIKE TO WALK, WALK IF YOU CAN, DARLS.
  • NO TO SALE - CONSCIOUS CONSUMERISM- WE WANT CUSTOMERS TO REALLY WANT OUR PRODUCT, AND DON'T BE TRIGGERED BY DISCOUNTS. BE HAPPY ABOUT THE PURCHASE MADE AND CARRY AND IT SEASONALLY, SO WE NEVER HAVE SALES PERIOD. WE MAY HAVE AN OCASSIOANAL INCENTIVE, BUT THAT’S MORE FOR SAYING THANK YOU TO ALL OUR FANS, RATHER THAT TO PUSH THEM INTO BUYING. THEREFORE, HAPPY CUSTOMERS WHO KEEPS QUALITY CLOTHING FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME AND DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO THE LANDFILL.
  • GIVING BACK TO COMMUNITY- WITH A DESIRE TO INVEST INTO THE BRIGHTEST FUTURE WE SUPPORT STUDENT COMMUNITY- WHEN ORDERED LOCALLY, WE HIRE STUDENTS TO SHIP OUR PARCELS AND PAY THEM A LITTLE EXTRA SO THEY CAN EARN SOME CASH, WHICH IS USUALLY QUITE DIFFICULT TO FIND WELL PAID WHILE FLEXIBLE JOB, SO THEY CAN WALK THEIR DOGS WHILE DELIVERING PARCELS, OR DROP THEM ON THE WAY HOME USING PUBLIC TRANSPORT. 

  • WASTE AND RECYCLING- WE USE RECYCABLE, BIOGRADABLE OR RE-USABLE PACKAKING, WE SAY NO TO PLASTIC BAGS AND LIVE A VERY CONCIOUS OFFICE LIFE. AND WE DON’T HAVE FABRIC LEFTOVERS.
