Our garments wouldn't exist without the passion of our makers.

We set out to make L.M a brand that we were proud of, one that was dedicated to build lasting authentic relationships with our suppliers, makers and artisans. We searched high and low to find quality makers that were just as committed to ethical production and our broader L.M values as we were. Our search led us to find two partners whose approaches are aligned with our mission and who make us proud to work alongside. 

With many different interpretations of what ethical production is we want to be clear as to how we define our production.
"A kind, respectful, nurturing, fair and equal space where makers are empowered in safe environments." 

Say Hello to Blank Studios

A production unit empowering female tailors

Blank Studio is passionate about helping women from marginalised communities earn fair and equal wages.

Blank Studios are focused on creating a space where employees are empowered to learn, grow and strive for a fairer fashion supply chain. 

Shivangi, the women that makes all this happen, explained to us how Blank strive to make the studio not only a production unit but also a vocational centre for future female tailors, a womens academy for stitching.  "We started this 3 years ago and all three women on those machines have been here from day one. Now one has now been promoted to a senior tailor who often helps to assist the master." 

Every garment sewn at Blank Studio is sewn by one maker from start to finish even down to the final ironing. This enables greater ownership and respect for the makers practice allowing them to feel like they are a part of the bigger picture not just one part in the production line.

Meet Indus Intex

A shirting manufacturer with an emphasis on ensuring supreme quality and high ethical standards

Indus' vision is "to become India's most preferred and reliable garment exporter by developing sustainable practices and partnerships with employees, suppliers, customers and society."

This vision aligns with our desire to create meaningful relationships with our suppliers, makers and artisans. 

The potential for unethical production practices is most likely within a larger factory, however this is not the case with Indus. We have visited their facility and know the strict guidelines and practices that are in place to ensure safe and fair working conditions. Not only this, but they are accredited with the following international standards that require third party audits; 

- Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) certified: Gold Category
- Business Social Compliance Initiative, (BSCI) Certificate of Compliance – A level
- Fair Trade USA (it's important to note that at this stage we aren't participating in the Fair Trade Program but are looking into becoming a brand partner for our next order.)
