LaZoy has a strong focus on sustainability and social responsibility. It is the only option for us. And it is absolutely necessary if we are to preserve our planet.
You will always be able to wear LaZoy clothes with the cleanest conscience.
It is our responsibility.
The fashion industry grossly over-pollutes and behave indecently towards people in the clothing manufacturing in many parts of the world. We simply do not want to be a part of that. And it is not necessary at all. You can easily make clothes without burdening our planet or the planet’s people and animals the way it is done today.
Well of course the fashion industry can never be 100 % sustainable. To be that we should not produce any more clothes, but wear what we have till we die. However, this is not an option. The fashion industry is very big and powerful because we identify ourselves very much through the clothes we wear. However, this powerful industry has the responsibility to make fashion as sustainable as possible.
We at LaZoy take our responsibility seriously and you can wear the clothes with a clean conscience knowing that your piece of LaZoy clothing is produced without burdening our planet unnecessarily and without the involvement of child labor or any other outrageous conditions, but knowing that the people involved in the entire value chain have been paid a salary that they are able to live on.
Focus on sustainability, social responsibility and transparency throughout the value chain:
Production: From January 2020 we produce at Miltex Production A/S, a Danish company that owns two sewing companies in Ukraine. Miltex Production A/S is a member of BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), which ensures good working conditions.
Previously we have produced at Feniks2020, a small sewing company in Bulgaria with good working conditions. There are still products on the shop produced here.
We produce primarily samples and small series at the Danish manufacturer Sylab in Ikast. For more information follow this link: ldcluster.com/Sylab.
We are in the process of starting a collaboration with a GOTS certified manufacturer in Izmir/Turkey, which is called Orimpex Textiles. For more information follow this link: www.orimpex.com.tr. Orimpex is a Dutch/Turkish company with several certifications and a long tradition of sustainability.
Fabric: We always strive to use the most sustainable fabric.
We use fabric made of wood, mainly lyocell and modal, which is manufactured by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sustainable forestry and transformed into yarn fibers in an environmentally responsible production process, which takes place in a closed loop without the emission of chemicals.
We also use GOTS certified organic cotton, and we use fabric made from recycled fibers. All fabrics are at least OekoTex 100 certified.
Because it is jersey we always use 5 % elastane for the fabric to retain its shape.
We buy fabric from the Danish wholesale company VSE Textiles, which produces the fabric at Turkish manufacturers located in the western part of Turkey.
All LaZoy clothing is 100% vegan.
Long-lasting season independent clothes: The LaZoy season never ends. We design clothes that are season independent so you can wear the clothes most of the year and season after season.
The clothes are very useable. You can wear the shirts together with everything from worn-out jeans to pencil skirts, and the shirt dresses allow you to dress up and down and use them both at work and at a party.
The clothes are of excellent quality and you can use it for many years. This means that you do not have to buy new clothes as often, allowing you to not contribute to the totally indecent use-and-throw-away culture which characterizes large parts of the world today.
Transport: We try to minimize transportation where possible. We try to find shipping companies with a sustainable focus in their business model and which run as directly as possible without too many reloadings.
Delivery to you: The boxes for B2B customers are reused or made of recycled carton.
Our webshop shipping bag is made of 100 % recycled plastic film manufactured at a Danish factory. The bag contains no heavy metals or other harmful substances.
Your invoice will not be printed, but emailed to you.
We are constantly working to make it all even more sustainable!
We are not yet on target with everything we want. But we are on our way. Our value chain is transparent and you as a customer are always welcome to ask us in-depth questions about fabric, production and other things.
